Schilling's Ankle Injury

Talk about sucking it up for the team... this playoff season, Curt Schilling is showing guts not seen outside of a Boogaman baseball post.

Somewhere on a slab in Boston is a citizen of Red Sox Nation who actually gave his body to the cause.

With the team's future increasingly dependent on Curt Schilling's right leg, doctors decided to try an apparently unprecedented procedure to keep a tendon from slipping around in his ankle. But first, they wanted to test it out.

So they used a cadaver. No way to know if it was a Red Sox fan.

...

The Red Sox training staff thought of various ways to keep the tendon in place. Special high-top shoes didn't work, and they hit upon the idea of sewing skin in Schilling's leg to the tissue underneath, creating a wall that would keep the tendon in place.

Geeze! I thought only hockey players were that nuts.

I've always like Schilling and now there is even more reason to root for him.
