Curt Schilling gets President Donald Trump’s endorsement to run for Congress in Arizona

first_imgCurt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific! @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2019″I haven’t said anything publicly, but I’m considering going back to Arizona and running for a congressional seat, one of the blue ones,” Schilling said Sunday on Armed American Radio. “It’s something that my wife and I have talked about, and she’s now becoming more and more pumped at the potential. Obviously, we’re still quite a few discussions away, but yeah, it’s something we’re absolutely considering.”Schilling, who pitched in the 2001 World Series for the Diamondbacks and helped the 2004 Red Sox win their first series in 86 years, has made more waves since he’s stepped away from baseball.He was fired from ESPN in 2016 after he shared a Facebook post that was deemed offensive over North Carolina’s bathroom law. He’s continued to be a polarizing figure in sports with his conservative stances and support of Trump, as well. Schilling, 52, didn’t say which district he was willing to run in but wants to go up against one of Arizona’s five Democrats.”Not ready to do any of that right now. If/When things solidify I will but right now it’s something in the ‘I’m considering it’ stage,” Schilling told The Arizona Republic in an email.

Lakers injury updates: LeBron James, Anthony Davis expected to play on Christmas vs. Clippers

first_imgMORE: SN’s NBA Athlete of the DecadeBoth James and Davis were listed as questionable on Monday for the Christmas showdown with the Clippers, but the All-Star forwards pushed for an impromptu practice on Christmas Eve, per Wojnarowski and McMenamin. Practice time has been hard to find for coach Frank Vogel, as the Lakers have played 12 of their last 16 games on the road. There won’t be any talk of load management in Los Angeles on Christmas Day.Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis are expected to play on Wednesday against the Clippers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin. James missed a game for the first time this season on Sunday with a thoracic muscle strain and discomfort in his groin; Davis hurt his right knee in that game, a 128-104 loss to the Nuggets. “We went a 10-day trip without a single practice, really,” Vogel told reporters on Monday. “One shootaround, I think. Sometimes that benefits your legs, but usually it leads to a little bit of slippage in your execution and togetherness, particularly on the defensive end.”🎥 Frank Vogel gives an injury update for LeBron and AD. pic.twitter.com/DtsKBUgsRZ— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) December 23, 2019The Lakers stand alone at the top of the Western Conference standings with a 24-6 record, but a three-game losing streak has allowed contenders like the Nuggets (21-8), Rockets (21-9) and Clippers (22-10) to close the gap. The Lakers will need to fire on all cylinders to defeat the Clippers, who won the first battle of LA on Opening Night without Paul George.George will be part of the starting five this time, joining Kawhi Leonard on the Staples Center floor. Leonard sat out Sunday’s game against the Thunder, but the 2019 NBA Finals MVP is available for the Christmas Day contest.last_img read more
