Bill Simmons, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck watched Super Bowl together

Monday February 2nd, 2015

Three of the most famous Bostonians alive watched the Super Bowl together and you can almost smell the chowder through the screen. 

Dicky Barrent, the singer for the Boston ska band the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, posted this picture of Bill Simmons, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon celebrating the Patriots' victory.

Simmons even referenced Affleck in his pre-Super Bowl column. "I always wanted to root for an NFL team that behaves like Ben Affleck during the first 75 minutes of Gone Girl," Simmons said in response to a reader question about the Patriots' reaction to Deflategate. "It’s a dream come true."

Hopefully he didn't spend the whole night comparing the game to his friends' movies. 

Oh, and that's PTI co-host Tony Kornheiser hanging out in the background. He didn't get invited into the picture because he's from Long Island.
