With Sox Loss, Ben Affleck Trades Himself to the Yankees

It’s Ben Affleck’s birthday, and the Cambridge native and life-long Red Sox fan wants one thing this year: a Red Sox win.

Since the release of Good Will Hunting in 1998, the Sox have failed to win a game on August 15, a streak of 14 losses that spans back the Jimy Williams era. There may be no one in Hollywood more associated with Boston, so it came as a bit of shock Friday afternoon when Affleck threatened to switch allegiences away from the team he grew up with.

Damon would never say something like that.

The Sox should have a pretty good chance to win Friday night with the pitiful Houston Astros in town.
