The Affleck Effect

No, not AFLAC. Affleck.

Courtesy of ESPN, here's the Red Sox record on Ben Affleck's birthday since "Good Will Hunting" opened in 1998:

2005 Lost at Tigers 7-6
2004 Lost to White Sox 5-4
2003 Lost to Mariners 10-5
2002 Lost at Mariners 4-3
2001 Lost to Mariners 6-2
2000 Lost to Devil Rays 3-1
1999 Lost to Mariners 4-3
1998 Lost to Twins 3-1

His destruction, apparently, knows no bounds. Fortunately for me, I'm a Yankee fan.

It's too bad, actually. I think he's an affable, likeable guy who isn't afraid to be self-effacing. But man, some bad movies.
