Aggro Me: Hero of the World Series and Norrath?
Hero of the World Series and Norrath?
If you missed the MLB World Series last year, two baseball teams from the east coast of the United States played each other and the one from Boston won. The historic victory was due in part to the (some say overly dramatic) heroics of pitcher Curt Schilling.Well, Baltimore is currently in first place in the AL East and Schilling is on the disabled list. He is also not too popular in Tampa Bay.But, is he really having problems with his surgically repaired ankle or does he just want a little more time to finish a few heritage quests? Schilling was sporting an EQII hat at a recent press conference which was shown on ESPN.Here is the link to a great picture from the Boston Globe. Sigh, I am getting a registration page when I click that link now. If you don't want to register, Kotaku also the has picture up
.It is fairly common knowledge that Schilling was an EQ1 player along with outfielder Doug Glanville. The story really came out when Glanville took Schilling yard twice in one game and later told a reporter that it was "revenge for the death of his beloved dwarf paladin."There is a thread in the official forums about Schilling.My favorite quotes so far from the thread:"With a salary like his, he will pwn the exchange server.""Look for the toon with a slight limp, a bloody sock, and a REALLY nice ring...."If nothing else, this is free promotion for SOE. Actually, I suppose they could be paying him - who knows? But even if they are, if you read about the guy you find he truly is into gaming. He is even an owner of a wargame publishing company.Anyone know of any other "celebrity" EQII players? Is that really Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie duoing wasps in the Enchanted Lands? I hope not.
