Approaching 14th Anniversary Of Arizona T-Day Summit

One week from today will be the 14th anniversary of The Great Thanksgiving Summit that brought Curt Schilling to Boston. On November 27, 2003 Theo Epstein travelled to Schilling's Paradise Valley, Arizona home to share drumsticks, stuffing, cranberry sauce and dreams of glory with the pitcher's family. Talk about your bold negotiating gambit! Well, it worked. Schilling donned Carmine Hose for the 2004 season—and, well, you know what happened after that. Come to think of it, November 27th should be an official Red Sox holiday—a day we burn incense to Theo from morning 'til night.
