Nate Corddry a die-hard Patriots and Red Sox fan

Living 2,600 miles away won’t stop this die-hard Patriots and Red Sox fan

More proof that you can take the sports fan out of Boston, but you can’t take Boston out of the sports fan.

Actor and Weymouth native Nate Corddry, the younger brother of fellow “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry, left Massachusetts for college 20 years ago, later moved to New York City, and now lives in Los Angeles. But he’s still a Red Sox season ticket holder, despite his home address being 2,600 miles from Fenway Park.

(“I was on the waiting list for 10 years,” he explained, “so when they called me last December and said, ‘Hey, your name came up,’ I said, ‘Oh, Lord. I live in — I accept! I’ll take them!”)

When it comes to the New England Patriots, Corddry says he never misses a game and has three team shirts hanging in his closet (“two Bradys, the home jersey and the throwback jersey, and a Rob Ninkovich”).

So it’s no surprise that Corddry is backing the Pats in the friendly wager he’s made with actor and Baltimore fan Thomas Sadoski on this Saturday’s Patriots/Ravens game.
