Poor Matt Damon. Look at him longing to be a famous Red Sox player instead of a famous movie star. According to Babble.com who read it in the Boston Herald, Damon was asked what he would say if his one-year old daughter Isabella grew up and decided to cheer for a different team. “You mean before I disowned her, what would I say?” Damon joked. “There aren’t words for that kind of rebellion!”
Between you and me, these Red Sox fans are nuts. I married one on the condition that our children be raised in the fold. Before the team won the World Series in 2004 after the most stupendous dry spell in baseball history (86 years), everytime they lost a game my husband would act like someone died. Things have been better since they won the series, thank god, but there’s still a pitch to these people that you don’t see in ordinary fans.
We’re headed to Red Sox country in a few days and have plans to take in a game at Fenway Park. Wish me luck.
