0 of 10

    Boston fans united in one of the most beautiful renditions of the national anthem, Jackie Robinson was all the rage and we have a great recap of some amazing videos that hit the Internet this week. 

    We were fortunate enough to come across a rarely seen image of Robinson, an MLB legend, dominating on the football field. 

    There was also a recent moment that we will never forget, when Bruins fans illustrated their strength and perseverance in an emotional singing of the "Star-Spangled Banner."

    Of course, these are just our suggestions of the best videos of the week. If you have any you feel were slighted, correct that mistake in the comments section below. 

Boston Bruins Sing Wonderful Rendition of National Anthem

1 of 10

    This has been a remarkably difficult week for all those in Boston. The usual fun and frivolity of the Boston Marathon was brought to an abrupt halt by two devastating explosions. 

    On Wednesday night, the entire crowd united for one of the loudest and most poignant renditions of a time-honored anthem.

    Many of you have already taken in the movie 42, which covers the remarkable story of Dodgers legend Jackie Robinson breaking baseball's color barrier. 

    USC was kind enough to release this beautiful video of Robinson in one of his other endeavors, playing football for UCLA.

Half-court Shot for $8,000

3 of 10

    Matt Hasselbeck just wanted the No. 8 when he joined his new team. His ingenious idea was to offer Colts quarterback Chandler Harnish one shot from half court for the number. 

    One epic heave later, Hasselbeck had his number, but not before giving $8,000 to Harnish for his prized number.

4 of 10

    Alex Ovechkin decided to provide his fans a solid by asking passersby to play him in an impromptu hockey game.

    Make sure you are prepared to bring your A-game when walking the streets of Washington, because you never know when a star NHL player will ask you to join his team.

Tony Allen: Karaoke Maestro

5 of 10

    The Memphis Grizzlies' Tony Allen was hosting his aptly named "Tony Allen Karaoke Night" when he decided to steal the show. 

    He goes old school to hit the best parts of the classic "This is How We Do It." Indeed, Allen. Indeed.

Tony Gwynn Talks out of His, Well, You Know

6 of 10

    This dated video resurfaced just long enough to get us chuckling anew. Outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. is getting blasted by hecklers. 

    Like a champ, Gwynn turns the situation around and gets the entire section laughing as he lets his glove do the talking.

Ear Muffs

    Throw this one into the pile of things that are so bad they are very much excellent. 

    Georgia coach Mark Richt provides a cameo in his son's Bulldogs anthem that will have you laughing out loud. Unless you are a Georgia fan, of course.

That's Not a Glove. This Is a Glove.

8 of 10

    Why, what a mighty big glove you have there. 

    During Monday night's game against the Cardinals, a Pirates fan finally got to put his enormous glove to use, catching a foul ball. 

    Really, how could he possibly drop it?

Own Goal Oopsie

9 of 10

    By definition, all own goals are horrible. This one is particularly unfortunate for the player just trying to clear the ball. 

    FC Utrecht defender Mike van der Hoorn tries to save a goal against AZ Alkmaar and manages to secure one instead. 

    The good news, of which there is little, is the goal hardly mattered, because his team lost, 6-0.

Ryan Lochte the Comedian

10 of 10

    Ryan Lochte struggled through an interview with the usual bumps and stutters that we have come to expect. 

    The one thing that makes this particular interview so wonderful is the hosts can't contain themselves afterward. Sports' Forrest Gump strikes again.
