Schilling gives tip of the hat to Endicott College

BEVERLY — Endicott College got some pretty good national publicity the other night without even trying.

In a widely circulated photo that was shown during Sunday night’s Red Sox-Yankees game on ESPN, Curt Schilling was shown in the hospital where he is being treated for cancer.

And if you looked closely enough, you might have noticed that the former Red Sox pitcher was wearing an Endicott College baseball hat. The hat didn’t say “Endicott,” but it did feature the college’s Gull logo.

Schilling is now a fan because his son Gehrig will be attending the college in the fall, according to Gehrig’s Twitter account. Schilling himself was spotted on campus a few months ago.

Still standing

As one reader pointed out, the old Stromberg’s building across from Dane Street Beach was not torn down, contrary to what we reported last week.

The building’s second floor was taken off and turned into condos, but the distinctive ground floor, with the line of windows where you could order take-out food, is still there.

Another reader called with memories of how the Hobbs family, of the famous Hobbs popcorn at Salem Willows, ran a store on Dane Street back in the 1940s.

Victorious videos
