Taking a quick break from campaigning, Mitt and Ann Romney headed to the Boston Garden ahem, "TD Garden" Sunday night to catch the Celtics and Atlanta Hawks square off in the NBA playoffs.

In any case, he was wise not to go to a Heat game the night before his jaunt to Northeast Ohio -- feelings there are still a bit raw from LeBron James' departure. Here's another photo, in which he looks like he's about to abducted by a spaceship:
