Dee Gordon sings Usher at karaoke, wants to be the Hulk someday

Dee Gordon is leading the league in batting average and is second only to Billy Hamilton when it comes to stolen bases. Of course, you knew that already. But did you know that his go-to karaoke song is Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz's "Lovers and Friends" (he does the Usher verse) or that he's really, really good at Scattergories? 

"My family hates playing with me because I'm so good at it. I know the minute I write something down, they're Googling it, and I'm like, 'it's real!'" Gordon told MLB.com, during what was clearly a very serious interview.

So if you think a hot dog is a sandwich, beware. Dee Gordon might Twitter-shame you.
