AP: "Schilling makes surprise appearance for Bush"


Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling made a surprise appearance Monday morning with President Bush, limping to the stage to give Bush a strong endorsement.

The ace pitcher said Bush was a commander in chief who will ensure troops "have everything they need to get the job done, a leader who believes in their mission and honors their service, a leader who has the courage and the character to stay on the offense against terrorism until the war is won."

Bush stood next to him, and they embraced afterward.

"On Tuesday, we need you to get out and vote. We need you to get your friends and neighbors out to vote - tell them you're voting for President Bush and get them on board, too," Schilling said. "I know everybody wants to be on a winning team, and there's plenty of room on this bandwagon."

(emp. mine)

Too funny. "...there's plenty of room on this bandwagon."

I was a bit disapointed when initially Curt not only said he was unable to appear with Bush due to his injury, but when he commented how he thought maybe his comments were inappropriate at the time he made them. --Thankfully, he did appear with W. Word up, Curt.
