Rock star Jack White, a.k.a. "the most culturally relevant Zorro-looking mofo of our time," apparently saw fit to take in a Cards game with his ol' pal Pokey LaFarge before his performance at the Fox Theatre this Sunday. Though from the looks of things, he hardly enjoyed it.

This photo, posted Monday night on Third Man Records' Instagram page, sees a dissatisfied-looking White sitting in the Busch Stadium seats alongside LaFarge and an old-timey looking fellow wearing a suit and fancy hat who, at press time, could not immediately be identified (anyone?).

According to the post this is an hour before White was to hit the stage. Perhaps a bit of the pre-show jitters? Or maybe his beer was served flat? Maybe he's a Cardinals fan who, like many of us, was unhappy with the outcome of the night's game?

Whatever the case, White didn't let it get to him come showtime, and he reportedly blew the doors off the place. We just wish he could take a tip from the young fella who photobombed this picture and have a little more fun at the ballgame. It's America's pastime, after all.

Assumptions are a dangerous and stupid proposition. Assuming you know what this guys is thinking is just plain dumb RFT.  What's the guys supposed to do? Jump around and giggle? Geez. Give him a break. 


And for all you haters - he is an amazing musician. He completely ROCKED the house at the Fox. Not one person was sitting down when he started playing and continued to stand through the whole night.

Anything has to be better than listening to him scream, not sing, on stage

Remember when RFT made an ass of themselves with a whole article filled with assumptions over a picture?

He probably hates getting his picture taken while he's trying to chillax. Why would he go if he doesn't like it? This whole thing is stupid.

Jack White is nothing to me. I am not affected by his pleasure nor his pain. However, did we actually get a statement from this man that he had a miserable time?....or are we just assuming?

Maybe he was just annoyed by the photographer putting a camera 4 feet from his face while he was attempting to enjoy the game. Assuming he hated it without asking him going full potatoe.

Can't say that I blame him. This year's Cardinal team is dull as dirt.

I am under the impression that not much excites Jack in the world. He is the constant Hipster/Emo god

If you did any research you'd see that he has taken the same picture at every stadium his been to.

Yeah, baseball is more of a sport for smart people anyway. Surely it wasn't as boring as most of his riffs was....

#1 - Just because he doesn't have a smile carved into his face like the Joker, doesn't mean he's not enjoying the game. He's the one who bought the ticket. 

#2 - He's wearing black in July, the humidity is muggy, will make you sweat and your hair frizz out. You can tell by looking closely at his hair, AND the paleness of his skin says that he hardly ever spends time in the sun. People who dress like Count Dracula in July aren't necessarily known for their smiles.

#3 -  He's an artist. Try telling an artist what to think or how to feel and see how well that works out for you. He was not on stage, he was not getting paid. He was watching a baseball game. Something tells me people have set the bar of expectations much too high to be reasonable. For all you know, he might have had to poop.


#4 - The Cardinals could have been losing the game. If someone had just hit a grand slam off of Adam Wainwright, you guys would be singing a different tune.


#5 - It's just a photograph, and people can tell whatever story they want depending on how they frame it up. Anyone who would get mad over a photograph of Jack White not smiling at a baseball game is probably so short-sighted that it is amazing they are able to see past their own nose.

You'd be right on the latter.
