Did You Know The National Anthem Is Actually Really Long?! Watch The Patriotic Hijinks HERE!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesSilly!ZportzBaseballFunny

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)!

Matt Damon Is Batty For Boston! Shows Some World Series Love With His Pops At Fenway Park!

Filed under: Matt DamonZportzBaseball

matt damon goes to fenway park to cheer for boston red sox in world series

Matt Damon might be Hollywood's brightest stars, and a complete DILF, but before he made the move to La-La-Land, he was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts!

So when his beloved Boston Red Sox were competing for the World Series agains the St. Louis Cardinals, he just HAD to make his way to Fenway Park to root for his boys!

Matty got his hands on some AH-mazing seats as he did some quality father-son bonding and took in some Game 1 action with his pops as the Sox absolutely CRUSHED the Cards 8-1!

Unfortunately, their presence was missed in Game 2 and nothing seemed to go right at Fenway! Not only did James Taylor mess up the National Anthem to kick things off, but the Boston boys made a couple of HUGE errors that ended up costing them the game!

But don't worry, Matty. It's not your fault.

James Taylor Messes Up The National Anthem At The World Series! Watch HERE!

Filed under: Oops!ZportzBaseball

Last night, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox met for their second match-up in the World Series, and this time James Taylor was called to the plate to sing the National Anthem!

Unfortunately, the rock and roll Hall of Famer was not able to live up the the performance Mary J. Blige put on the night before, but it had nothing to do with his voice! He actually MESSED up the words!!

As James began plucking at his guitar strings, he accidentally started singing America the Beautiful instead! Luckily, he caught his mistake and still pulled off a great performance!

The singer-songwriter was supposed to sing America the Beautiful during the 7th inning stretch, so it's easy to see why there was a mix-up.

Unfortunately, the flub proved to be a bit of a bad omen as the Red Sox actually ended up LOSING at home after making a couple of costly errors!

We knew they should have brought back Mary for Game 2!!!

Ch-ch-check out the National Anthem mishap (above)!

mary j blige sings national anthem at world series

The World Series is officially upon us people!

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox were set to square off last night in Game 1 to decide who reigns supreme in the baseball world!

But before the Fall classic officially began, they decided to have Mary J. Blige step up to the plate and sing the National Anthem!

Not surprisingly, the soul singer absolutely knocked it out of the park and even had a perfectly-timed pause for the patriotic flyover!!

Also, the Red Sox happened to win last night in an absolute blowout over the Cards, so who knows? Maybe they'll ask her to come back to Fenway to sing again tonight!

Ch-ch-check out her amazing performance …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Channing Tatum Takes Photos With Canadian Fans, EH?!

Filed under: Channing Tatum

channing tatum

Channing Tatum is such a poser, and we mean that in the best sense possible!

Magic Mike himself was caught red handed irised at Vancouver airport, taking pictures with all the fans! Now, usually when a Canadian mob shows up with one dollar bills lots of syrup cameras, most people would run for the nearest mountie.

Not Channing though! Probz because he knows the mountie would want a picture as well…

Channing and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum were crossing the border in order to find a place to locate their newly growing (and adorbz) family, as Jenna starts work on her new TV show, Witches of East End!

We wish the two the best, and congratulate them on beautiful Everly!! Just please, come back to Hollywood SOOOOON! We miss you.

This is an open invitation to all our Canadian friends too!

Miley Cyrus Fans Petition To Make Party In The U.S.A. The National Anthem!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikMiley Cyrus

miley cyrus party in the usa national anthem petition

This whole 4th of July weekend, you've probably heard The Star Spangled Banner umpteen times. But what if the fireworks exploded to the strains of Miley Cyrus instead?

That's what would happen if a politically-minded group of Smileys had their way! The Mileybird chicks have created a petition to replace the iconic tune with Party In The U.S.A.!

But is America ready for a national anthem referencing Jay-Z and Britney Spears?? It doesn't look that way.

The video may have over 340,000,000 YouTube views, but so far the petition has only garnered about 400 of the 100,000 necessary to garner a response from the White House.

Miley fans have three weeks to get the other 99,000 or so electronic signatures. And you know what? We're really hoping they do.

Well, not really for changing the national anthem, but we totes want to read Barack Obama's response letter!
