• HaroldHecuba: Mike Mussina is EASTERN EUROPEAN, not Italian....

Now that we know the Red Sox have “reached” a preliminary agreement with Matzusaka and his bitch agent, and the contract figures were flying around SI.com faster than the Japanesse pitcher himself on his way to Logan, via LAX, we gotta figure out how the hell they can afford the guy.

I know! They should all cash in on Curt Schilling’s new company, Green Monster Games, created to make new MMO (don’t know what it stands for) video games, like Everquest.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is the first professional athlete to open his own video game studio, Green Monster Games (GMG). Located in Maynard, MA, Schilling’s GMG will focus solely on creating massively multiplayer online (MMO) games aimed at the mass market. Schilling has been a passionate gamer for a long, long time and he’s decided to spend the second chapter of his career making video games.

“I knew five, six, seven years ago that my career would be coming to a close,” said Schilling. “I didn’t think it would last this long, but I knew I wanted to do something after baseball. I had no desire to open a restaurant or do what it is that a lot of athletes do after they retire. I wanted to do something that I had a lot of passion for and this is something that I’ve always had a passion for.

Now we know for sure that Curt is a Bush-loving dork and that I’ve sat on the sidelines for waay to long, only to come back with a Red Sox post. How lame.
