Election Eve: Candidates Turn to Monday Night Football

Targeting the all important Pittsburgh/Pennsylvania and Virginia markets, both John McCain and Barack Obama have agreed to interviews with Chris Berman that will air during halftime of Monday Night Football game between the Steelers and the Redskins. From ESPN via Jonathan Martin:
On the eve of the presidential election, with "Monday Night Football" from Washington as the backdrop, candidates Barack Obama and John McCain are planning to participate in one-on-one interviews on ESPN via satellite.

ESPN's Chris Berman will do the segments earlier Monday, pending last-minute schedule changes by the candidates, and they'll air at halftime of the Redskins-Pittsburgh Steelers broadcast from D.C., the network announced. The game kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Do you think McCain will repeat his false claim that he named the Steel Curtain instead of his squadron when pressed by his POW captors? I don't know if either candidate wants to lay claim to supporting either team. While Washington DC may only have 3 electoral votes, the Redskins are pretty popular in Virginia. Whose electorate to piss off? Pennsylvania's or Virginia's? They'll both, obviously, stay neutral.
