Schilling offers $1M for phony blood proof

Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling offered $1 million to anyone who could prove it was not blood that blotted his famous sock in the 2004 playoffs, and criticized members of the media in a blog on his personal Web site. The controversy over what stained Schilling's sock was reignited this week when Baltimore Orioles broadcaster Gary Thorne said Red Sox catcher Doug Mirabelli had told him it was paint, not blood, and that it was done as a publicity stunt. Mirabelli called that a lie, and Thorne said Thursday he had misreported what Mirabelli said. Still, Schilling blasted Thorne and the media in general in his first public statement since Thorne's on-air comments. Schilling offered $1 million to anyone who could prove the blood on his sock was not authentic.
