This final note today, a follow-up to an item from a couple of weeks ago. Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and his video game company — 38 Studios, it was called — that went belly up after getting a $75 million loan guarantee from the state of Rhode Island.

After not saying much if anything publicly, Schilling went on the Dennis and Callahan Show on WEEI in Boston this morning.

Curt Schilling: You know, I sat down my family and explained about a month ago to them that 38 Studios was probably going to fail and go bankrupt. And that the money that I had earned and saved during baseball was probably all gone.

You look it up at baseballreference.com, and you’ll see Schilling made about $114 million in his 19-year career.
