Curt Schilling’s estate sale went pretty smoothly, randomly

The morning after the latest chapter of Boston Red Sox post-season heroics, a reminder of how fleeting such glory can be.  Curt Schilling, hero of 2004, has people going over all of his stuff.

We noted his estate sale last week. Here’s a scene from it that kind of brings home that these guys are just people:

Bill Fegley bought two bathroom scales, $8 each, with this logic: Maybe Schilling had weighed in on them while wearing the famous bloody sock from the 2004 World Series when he pitched on an injured ankle.

“I saw the scales and thought, ‘What a riot to give to my dad,’ ” said Fegley, who also bought a blue fabric shower curtain ($5) and a cow figurine ($5).

A million miles from Fenway.
