If you’ve watched more than one episode of any iteration of Jimmy Kimmel‘s late-night show, you know that there are a few people he just doesn’t get along with. Donald Trump is one. John Krasinski is another. But Matt Damon is by far the worst.
The host and the actor have been in a bitter public feud since as far back as the internet can remember and the two keep heightening the stakes. From a nightly bit at the end of Kimmel’s show to several songs about sleeping with each other’s partners to Matt kidnapping Jimmy and hijacking his show, these guys have tried to take each other down in every conceivable way. A couple years ago, they tried some couple’s counselling, but to no avail. It seems these two are just destined to be enemies.
At Game 5 of the World Series between the L.A. Dodgers and Boston Red Sox, the two were at it again, and this time, things got serious. This is SPORTS after all.
Being from Boston, Matt has a huge love for Boston sports teams, including the Red Sox. He and BFF/fellow Bostonian Ben Affleck were spotted at Game 5 of the series where Boston was just one win away from winning the whole thing against L.A.
But it looks like someone else crashed the festivities: Kimmel, who just happened to wear a “I’m with stupid” shirt that perfectly complimented Damon’s. While they seemed to be hostile for a while, the two were also caught joking and laughing together. Suspicious.
Everything seemed to run smoothly until the Sox beat the Dodgers to win the game and the series. Affleck and Damon were clearly ecstatic, but Kimmel was visibly disappointed, with good reason. The L.A. Dodgers are tied for the most World Series appearances (at 20) and also have the most World Series losses (at 14). Sorry, Jimmy.
If it makes him feel any better, the Toronto Blue Jays haven’t made it to the World Series since their back-to-back wins in 1992 and 1993. But we’re not bitter or anything.
Then again, Kimmel might not actually care at all. Judging by his game tweets, he doesn’t exactly understand the game. For those wondering, no, there are no penalty kicks in baseball.
Wow – almost had to go to penalty kicks @Dodgers

Well, congratulations to Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. We hope that they swing by Jimmy Kimmel Live soon to talk about the game.
