Mitt Romney continues to barnstorm the Boston sports teams, though lining up the votes of these millionaire athletes may be next to impossible.
Despite the fact that most of the Celtics players have attended fund raisers for the likely opponent of Mitt in the fall election classic, Mr. Romney seemed quite enthusiastic about the basketball franchise.
Indeed, after President Obama criticized Rajon Rondo to his face at their last fundraiser, we wonder if Mitt may be tapping into the angry voters on the Celtics team.
Just a few short weeks ago, Mitt was at Fenway Park for the Patriots' Day early morning game. The Marathon was ending a few blocks away, and this day off from campaigning seemed ideal.
Yet, we think it was the best photo op a presidential nominee could want. There was Mitt, looking all relaxed and like your average guy who makes $300 million per year, hobnobbing with the likes of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
At least we know Mitt can afford those loge boxes on the third base side that he is fond of sitting in at Fenway. It may be that the angle puts him on camera for every right-handed batter.
Now we had the pleasure (and so did Mitt) on watching the Boston Celtics trash the Atlanta Hawks at the TD Garden.
This time he sat about a dozen rows behind the former Democratic candidate and part owner of the Celtics, fellow millionaire Steve Pagliuca.
Mitt is an avid Boston sports fan, and once served as governor of the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
We keep wondering why he never bought into one of the major franchises in Boston. There were ample opportunities and money to be made.
Sitting with his wife Ann, Governor Romney held up a towel with the green logo "I am a Celtic."
We suspect he lost a few votes in Atlanta last night.
