Webhead Sox Fans Help Bag Schilling

The Globe is full of Schilling coverage this morning, including this nugget:

In an unusual twist, the Sox indirectly received a last-minute boost during the stalemate when Schilling communicated from about 2 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. with Boston fans in Internet chat rooms. He said he was "blown over" by the passion he sensed and cited the experience as part of the allure in joining the Sox.

It looks like the Hartford Courant has an article on the Internet angle, but their free online registration isn't working for me, so screw them. Sox GM Theo Epstein said in the press conference last night that one of the sites Schilling visited was Sons of Sam Horn, a reference to the mediocre slugger who played when I was a little kid and is now a part-time TV analyst. I figured the site would have the Schilling discussion out front on their main page, but instead I've been poking around looking for it.
