I understand that Steve Pagliuca has some serious ground to make up if he's going to win the Democratic US Senate primary. I also understand that the Celtics' recent return to NBA championship status is a feather in Pagliuca's cap. Still, is bringing the NBA trophy on Pagliuca's "Jobs Express" bus really necessary? Or helpful? Or anything other then mega-dorky?
Here's the press release:
