Former Red Sox pitcher joining conservative Breitbart news
Former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling is joining the Breitbart News Network as host of the conservative organization’s first online radio show.
The former Boston Red Sox World Series hero, who has said he’s considering a challenge to Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, will start his two-hour call-in show at 9 a.m. today.
Schilling called Breitbart “the last bastion of actual journalism.”
In April, Schilling was fired as an analyst by ESPN for his Facebook comments about transgender people.
Schilling starred for the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox. He played on three World Series winners and retired in 2009.
Shaquille O’Neal buys into Atlanta Krispy Kreme franchise
Shaquille O’Neal may have a new addition to his evergrowing list of nicknames: “The Big Doughnut.” Krispy Kreme Doughnuts says that the basketball Hall of Famer is an owner of one of its downtown Atlanta franchises. The company says O’Neal is an owner of the Krispy Kreme location on Ponce de Leon Avenue in the city.
O’Neal announced the news by tweeting out the Krispy Kreme logo with the message, “Ur favorite doughnut just got even HOTTER, baby.” Krispy Kreme is famous for its neon “hot doughnuts” sign announcing fresh treats.
O’Neal was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last month after a career that spanned 19 seasons.
