Gary Thorne Now Says It Was a Misunderstanding

Yesterday Orioles' play-by-play man, Gary Thorne, said on the air that Curt Schilling's bloody sock was a hoax.  He claimed that Doug Mirabelli told him so.  

Now, it seems, Thorne has retracted his statement.

"He said one thing, and I heard something else. I reported what I heard and what I honestly felt was said," Thorne said. "Having talked with him today, there's no doubt in my mind that's not what he said, that's not what he meant. He explained that it was in the context of the sarcasm and the jabbing that goes on in the clubhouse.

"I took it as something serious, and it wasn't," Thorne said.

Hopefully, that's the last word on this subject.

[editor's note, by Allen Chace] Props to Jere and Allan Wood of Joy of Sox for their work in exposing Thorne.
