Musicians are just like us, sometimes they do things that just aren’t nearly as much fun as they hoped. Case in point: Jack White hanging out at a Chicago Cubs game.

In theory, it should be fun. White can have a hot dog, sit back and take in America’s favorite pastime, try to be as wholesome as apple pie.

But, as these photos show from last night’s (July 22) game, White did not seem to have a good time watching the Cubs take on the San Diego Padres at Wrigley Field. He looks more like his buddy, Neil Young watching the San Jose Sharks.

What makes this photo even better is the “Party of the Century” ad running underneath White’s glare. Don’t you want to head to Wrigley Field and have as good a time as Jack White? No?

Perhaps, White was just upset he wasn’t watching his hometown team, the Detroit Tigers, or maybe he looks so serious because he’s trying to figure out how to bring a Major League Baseball team to his adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee.

A Third Man Records team doesn’t sound so farfetched, being that White’s already cornered the market for old timey studio setups and just announced that Third Man will launch a publishing branch called Third Man Books on August 5 with the release of Language Lessons, a 321-page hardbound collection of prose and poetry and two vinyl LPs. He can even help upholster the stadium seats.

Or, maybe, just maybe, he was upset they weren’t playing The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army,” the accidental sports anthem.

Cubs ended up winning the game 6-0, no evidence to prove White’s mood improved.
