Anyone who's ever been to a sporting event knows they all start the same way: with the Star-Spangled Banner!
But there's one thing sportsball fans might not be aware of. The version they usually hear is actually just ONE verse of the national anthem!
So when Kinky Boots star Lena Hall was asked to sing before a Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball game, she decided to give the attendees a little something extra!
Just as the words "And the home of the brave" were leaving her mouth, fans were preparing to put their hats back on and the players started heading back to the dugout! That is, until Lena started singing ANOTHER verse!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious reactions to the extended version of the national anthem (above)!
This is a surprise!
When people hear Lorde’s mega hit Royals, they probably thought the singer was inspired by England’s royal family, or maybe even just music royalty, but the LAST thing we thought it meant was this!
The New Zealander recently talked about where the idea for her song came from, and was surprisingly sparked by
Jose Canseco is a legend for a whole slew of reasons, mainly baseball-related.
He's now going down in the annuls of history for a very different reason: he was pulled over by cops while transporting goats, goats that were wearing diapers.
And then he tweeted a picture of it (above).
And we don't know what to do with our lives anymore.
We understand it was necessary so the goats wouldn't pinch goat-loaves all over the car, but why is he using a car to transport them?? It can't be safe for either Jose OR his goats!
He tweeted this along with the photo:
You know that little place on your voting ballot where you can write in the name of a person who you want to win?
Well, the people of Boston have spoken!
Despite the fact that Marty Walsh and John Connolly were the only two people officially running for the Mayor of Boston on the ballot, enough people out of the 560 write-ins scribbled down Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz’ name to spark reports that he came in third, according to NBC Sports!
We’re kind of innerested to know just how many of those ballots listed the World Series winner as “Big Papi!” Ha!
However, it seems that
Oh, R-Patz! What's the matter you sad, not-so-sparkly vampire!
Robert Pattinson was spotted out in El Lay grabbing some groceries and he portrayed an air of…er…dishevelment.
The Twilight actor looked much sadder than normal, maybe it's because his rumored on-again-off-again lady love Kristen Stewart is across the country away from him filming in New York City!
Boo-hoo!! Maybe those groceries were stocked with Ben & Jerry's!?!
LOLzz!! We doubt it!
Is that Yankee sweatshirt a subtle shoutout to KStew?? Showing that you're thinking about her?? Or are you just a massive Yankee fan…?
Either explanation works!! LOLzz!!
Don't worry, R-Patz, we're sure KStew will be back into your sparkly, vampire arms soon!

Somewhere in the streets of Boston, Matt Damon is partying SOOO hard right now!!
Last night the MLB season finally came to an end, and the Red Sox were crowned the champs after taking down the St. Louis Cardinals
The Boston Red Sox are one win away from taking home their third World Series title in nine years!
If you turn on your TV for Game 6 though, you won't need to look at the uniforms to know which team is the Sox. Just look for the guys with some SERIOUSLY scruffy faces!
These "playoff beards" have become the team's unifying feature on their quest for another title, with players like Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli and Jonny Gomes all sporting facial hair that hasn't been trimmed in weeks!
But as fans follow suit and keep their razors away in the medicine cabinet, one local business might suffer
