As I listed to Curt Schilling on WEEI yesterday, something dawned on me. Schilling was talking to Michael Holly and telling him that sportswriters really don’t know as much as they think they do.
They just have a media forum in which to express their thoughts about sports, which doesn’t mean they know any more or less than fans out there.
An old boss once told me "Sap, remember, sports reporters are just glorified fans with a press pass."
That stuck with me and it was reinforced by Schilling saying the same thing. Sometimes I get carried away thinking "oh, I’m a sportswriter for MLB.com and one day I’ll make it to the big time!"
But really, every day is a learning experience. I learn something new, mostly about sports history since I am only 23 and there’s a lot of old school players I just wasn’t around to watch.
Well just had to get that off my chest…more to come later!!
