Matt Damon Was Right: The Celtics Kicked Ass
Looks like Matt Damon was right. A few weeks ago at the taping of Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards (it airs this Sunday) he won an award (yes, those are golden antlers you see there). During his acceptance speech, Damon proclaimed that the Boston Celtics "will kick the collective ass of the Los Angeles Lakers." Oh, no you didn't! everyone thought as they booed. Well, he did. And he was right.
It's good word didn't get out about this until now. Otherwise this would have happened to him.
