During recent trips to the ballpark, Jack White was caught not once, but twice with a rather unflattering look on his face. Cameras first nabbed the Third Man rocker looking sad at a Chicago Cubs game last month, and again a week later, while he was throwing out the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game.
White, though, doesn’t seem bothered by being the Internet’s new favorite meme. On Tuesday, he visited Colorado’s Coors Field to shag fly balls and take batting practice with the Rockies. According to Reverb, a fan asked White his thoughts on the photo, to which he responded, “I can’t make that face again. But I’ll smile for you.”
That said, according to Nick Groke of The Denver Post, White got hit by a baseball during batting practice, and took a nasty one hopper while playing the outfield. So if another grumpy Jack White photo does surface, you’ll understand why.
Update: There’s conflicting details regarding what happened during White’s appearance at Coors Theater. A rep for White disputes Groke’s report that White addressed the meme, and also noted that he never got hit by any baseballs.
