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. The Celtics beat the pants off the Hawks, so perhaps the former governor is something of a good-luck charm. On the other hand, he's likely to win Georgia and lose Massachusetts in November. 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:
