Ben Affleck was left speechless when faced with the prospect of interviewing his sporting hero Wade Boggs. The movie star was making an appearance on actor Tom Arnold's cult TV sports program, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, when he was asked to interview a guest via satellite. Affleck agreed but simply couldn't get his words out when Boston Red Sox baseball hero Boggs appeared on the screen in front of him. The pitcher managed to fill the void by telling Affleck he was a fan of his films Pearl Harbor and Armageddon, before the red-faced actor meekly said, "I thought you were a really good hitter."
