Jim Carrey appears to losing baseball team in Iowa like magical sports fairy

The Pella High School baseball team had just wrapped up their final game of the season, a crushing 7-1 loss. They were tired. They were sweaty. They had stacks of SAT vocab flashcards waiting for them at home.

It's no surprise that the coach tried to cheer his players up by taking them out for ice cream. But who they saw there -- at a Burger King in Fairfield, Iowa -- that's the surprise. Jim Carrey was in town for a meditation retreat when he was apparently overcome by a craving for a double cheeseburger (stars: they're just like us).

Carrey didn't hesitate to climb aboard the team bus for a morale-boosting photo opportunity. As the cameras flashed, the comedian reportedly shouted, "Who are the (bleeping) winners now?!"

We all are, Jim. We all are.
