Not to be outdone by the Texas Longhorns' visit from Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, the Michigan State Spartans had two-time Academy Award winner Ben Affleck stop by on Thursday.

Affleck is in East Lansing filming the hotly anticipated Batman vs. Superman, and has been using the team weight room to make sure he looks good in the batsuit. Coach Mark Dantonio asked the actor if he could take a moment to visit the practice field and address the team before they take on Indiana on Saturday.

Did the Mets predict a Kansas City-San Francisco World Series?

The Detroit Free Press reports that Dantonio ended his Thursday night radio program with a casual, "Incidentally, Batman came to practice tonight, " which might be the only thing more appealing to recruits than Beyoncé.
