Zooey Deschanel sang the National Anthem at the World Series Saturday, but apparently she isn’t a baseball fan. Deschanel currently stars in the series, New Girl, and Fox was nice enough to have the star of their newest sitcom sing before Game 4. After, the cast of New Girl and Glee watched on the third baseline. MLB analyst Joe Buck even commented, “A lot of times, the stars have their moment on TV and then they just bolt.”
That was until the 7th inning, when the camera shot back to Deschanel, but the seats were empty. This time, Buck joked, “Maybe they’re just out getting a snack … all of ‘em at once.”
Deschanel took to her Twitter saying, “Would have loved to have watched the whole game but I had to catch a plane so I can go to work tomorrow. That’s all guys. I’m not a jerk.”
I guess it didn’t matter to Deschanel that St. Louis Cardinal Albert Pujols broke a baseball record by hitting three home runs.
