Hoping to pull off a miracle comeback, John McCain will call on someone who knows all about them in his final stop in New Hampshire on Sunday.
Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling -- he of the bloody sock in the 2004 American League Championship Series won by Boston after being down three games to none to the hated Yankees -- is scheduled to appear with McCain at a town hall event at Peterborough Town Hall.
McCain held one town hall after another to pull off a campaign-saving victory in the New Hampshire primary in January, and is now trailing Democrat Barack Obama in the state.
The doors open at 4:30 p.m. and the event is scheduled to last until 7:30 p.m.
UPDATE: Barack Obama will have a special guest as well on Sunday: rock legend Bruce Springsteen is scheduled to attend a rally in Cleveland.
Springsteen endorsed Obama during the Democratic primaries, and his post-9/11 anthem "The Rising" is a staple at Obama rallies.
