“Nothing beats Christmas in New York City, except Christmas in Boston! Go Sox!”

Matt Damon gave a funny and heart-felt speech during the opening monologue of SNL‘s Christmas show.  Even though he had a “New York” sweatshirt on when he introduced musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson, he made sure to mention his Boston heritage within the first few minutes of the show!
