Jack White Would Rather Be Anywhere But Wrigley Field

Jack White, looking like he was pulled from an Edward Gorey book and fitted with a throwback Cubs jersey, was captured scowling like he spit out a mouthful of that Black Bat Licorice at Wrigley Field last night during the Cubs' 6-0 win over San Diego Tuesday night. Maybe he heard about the "Wrigley Field experience" and arrived five years too late to enjoy the days when Tribune Co. emphasized partying at the ballpark over a competitive team, instead of the Ricketts family's painstakingly slow plan to build a consistent winner.

White's appearance in the grandstand had Cubs television play by play man Len Kasper going slightly fanboy, while color analyst Jim DeShaies was all "who is he?"

At one point, White even looked like he wanted to cut the cameraman.

At least he looks happier in the video. Maybe someone bought him some peanuts and Cracker Jack.
