RAYMOND, N.H., Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Republican presidential hopeful John McCain played hard ball politics while campaigning in New Hampshire when Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling joined him.
Shilling participated in a Town Hall meeting in Raymond, N.H., where he introduced Sen. McCain, R-Ariz. The Red Sox right-hander said in his 38 Pitches blog his vote "going to a man that bravely served this nation and extolled virtues and character throughout his lifetime that make me believe in him."
Besides introducing McCain, Shilling also was told to talk about why he was there.
"I had to laugh at the thought that his staff might not have realized the nightmare potential of me standing in front of American citizens with no script," he wrote.
Schilling ended his blog entry with a get-out-to-vote plea: "(Cast) your vote for whomever you choose to, but at the end of the day please make sure to cast your vote. ..."
