Funniest story of the afterparty was when Jay Z thought @BoomerWells33 was Curt Shilling
and asked him about bloody sock

It turns out that the funniest part of the #SNL40 afterparty didn’t have to do with any of the wacky cast members, because according to former MLB pitcher David Cone, it was Jay-Z who provided the most entertainment. No, he wasn’t wearing another spicy outfit worthy of a “Heyyyy!” from Cam’ron, the rich-as-fuck rapper confused one doughy, white pitcher for another famous, doughy, whiteboy.
It makes sense that a guy who’s had a Yankees fitted cap stapled to his dome for most of his career wouldn’t recognize former Yankee great David Wells. With a paternity lawsuit on his mind and the rush of #NYFW, Jigga’s obviously too consumed to realize David Wells isn’t Curt Schilling a.k.a a human most Yankees Fans hate for lifting the imaginary “Curse of the Bambino.”
To be fair, both pitchers are white, and Wells did play for the Red Sox towards the end of his career, so it does get confusing. Wells has a quite a history with SNL parties, as he threw a perfect game in 1998 after raging at one, and Schilling pitched one of the most memorable Red Sox playoff games ever against the Yankees in 2004 with a bloody sock... we mentioned they are both white right? That’s gotta be confusing. One has tattoos, a goatee and sometimes a mustache who brags about his benders and the other is a Republican who started a video game company that failed, scamming the state of Rhode Island for $100 million.
As you can see, Schilling was bummed, responding “Ouch… ” in a tweet, but didn’t seem to care that Cone spelled his name wrong in the OG tweet.
