IT'S NO SECRET that former Phillies ace Curt Schilling is hurting for cash. You don't get featured in ESPN Film's latest 30-for-30 documentary, "Broke," unless you're . . . well . . . broke.
Schilling has said he personally lost almost $50 million when 38 Studios, his video game company, filed for bankruptcy. On Thursday, he said he may also lose some of his most cherished sports mementos, including the bloody sock he wore while pitching for the Red Sox in Game 2 of the 2004 World Series.
Apparently, Schilling used the sock - now on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame - as part of collateral for millions of dollars in loans for his failed company. On Thursday, he told WEEI-AM in Boston that he may have to sell the sock, a cap worn by Lou Gehrig, and some World War II memorabilia to cover the loans.
