It would be an understatement to say Curt Schilling is unhappy with President Obama.
The former Boston Red Sox pitcher went off on the president over plans to host the Denver Broncos at the White House on Monday to celebrate their Super Bowl victory.
Though it is a long standing tradition for a president to host the Super Bowl champions, Schilling called Obama out for an “intentional slight at our past” by planning the date on the anniversary of D-Day.
President Obama will welcome Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos to White House on Monday, June 6.

I am completely confused as to why Curt Schilling is so mad about the Denver Broncos.
