UPDATE, 5:59 p.m.: Curt posts on his official blog:

While my family is obviously the priority, and 38 Studios is a priority, I do have some interest in the possibility. That being said, to get to there from where I am today, many many things would have to align themselves for that to truly happen. I am not going to comment further on the matter since at this point it would be speculation on top of speculation.

My hope is that whatever happens, and whomever it happens to, this state makes the decision and chooses the best person, regardless of sex, race, religion or political affiliation, to help get this state back to the place it deserves to be.

 


 

While he didn't dispute it, former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling tossed around the idea of running for Ted Kennedy's open Senate seat with NECN:

"I don't know. Right now I'm working on 38 Studios ... I have a lot on my plate. As of today, probably not. Going forward, that's a pretty big deal from a commitment standpoint. Right now, I'm not even going to speculate on it. ... Let's just leave it with I'd have to make a decision pretty quickly."

[...]

"I have been contacted ... by people whose opinion I give credence to and who I listen to. But this is not a decision I would make. It's a decision Shonda and I would make."

It seems like a long shot, but it's interesting to hear Schilling's stance on the situation. Schilling has always enjoyed talking politics -- probably in not the best times, either -- so it'll be interesting to see how this story develops.

Could we see Senator Schilling in the near future?
