Schilling's bloody sock was the lasting image of Game 6.
In 2004, the Boston Red Sox ignited New England when they relinquished the curse that had plagued them for 86 years.
On Sunday night, the New England Patriots will try to avenge their Super Bowl loss against the New York Giants from four years ago.
In the Red Sox notorious championship run, they received an inspiring performance from Curt Schilling in Game 6 of the ALCS. After injuring his ankle by tearing a tendon sheath in Game 1, he received a tendon procedure which allowed him to take the mound in Game 6.
This lead to the famous "Bloody Sock Game" caused from the sutures used in the procedure on his tendon.
The Red Sox went on to complete the comeback from three games to none down against the New York Yankees and sweep the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series.
On Sunday, Rob Gronkowski might be able to solidify his own spot in New England sports history.
He will do anything he has to in order to be able to take the field in Super Bow XLVI.
