The Bloody Sock

About certain things, I'm a believer. No matter what anyone, or any "scientific" test may say about the Holy Shroud of Turin, I believe it to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. I can never prove it, I just believe it and I'm probably a better man for doing so.
On a much less important topic, I believe that the bloody sock of Kurt Schilling is just that, a bloody sock. If a man has surgery on his ankle, then tries to push off the pitching mound repeatedly with that ankle, is it so hard to believe that his incision may bleed? What is unbelievable is also what is undeniable, how Schilling pitched with that injury.
People these days are so willing to buy into conspiracy theories they will ignore the simple truth; sports injuries will bleed, fire weakens steel etc..

This one's not even close. (Sort of like last night's game.) Schill's put his money where his mouth is. Over at his blog, 38 pitches, he issued a challenge:

"Someone gave me a great idea to end this once and for all. No one will ever need to bring it up again. I’ll wager 1 million dollars to the charity of anyones choice, versus the same amount to ALS. If the blood on the sock is fake, I’ll donate a million dollars to that persons charity, if not they donate that amount to ALS.

Any takers?"
