This Guy Brought His Pet Hamster to a Major League Soccer Game

This hamster got the best seats in the stadium.

What better way to watch a soccer game than with your best friend? Even if that best friend is your pet hamster.

A Barnsley soccer fan took his pet hamster to a game in England, tucked comfortably--and unnoticeably--in the hood of the boy's sweatshirt. When nearby rowdy fans noticed, they celebrated with a spontaneous "hamster in the hood" song.

Check out this class act in the clip below!

My best guess is the soccer fans have rewritten the words to "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands." Is that the melody you pick up, too?

Whatever their tune of choice, it's pretty adorable that a hamster got a free ticket to a major league soccer game! The rodent seems right at home; he must be a veteran hoodie traveler!
