Yesterday Wasn't The Day To Be Shy About Curt Schilling or ALS

Curt Schilling retired from baseball yesterday.

Curt Schilling is one of those lightning-rod personalities who likes a big stage and knows what to do with it, both in baseball and in life.

Curt Schilling was one of the best advocates and benefactors the ALS cause ever had.

Try the Google exercise this morning.  Google "Curt Schilling retirement" and you'll see lots of news stories.  Google "Curt Schilling ALS" and you see a few news stories with mentions of his goodness to the cause.  You'll notice a nice tribute to the man and his work on the field and off from the Boston Red Sox.

Where are all of the tributes and quotes from the ALS organizations he helped? Yesterday was a day to shine some light back on a man who has done much for the cause, and in the process shine a little light on the cause itself.  No doubt that the tributes will come.

When the shelf life a a news story passes, it's not like you can just go out and buy a fresh gallon of milk, though.
