The World Series got off to the best start imaginable for everyone on Earth last night, as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers 3-2 with absolutely zero controversy at all. Nope, Adrian Beltre just needs some bigger feet, that’s all. And the world rejoiced over the awesomeness of the Cardinals winning Game 1, as well as Tim McCarver slipping further into dementia, MLB doing the right thing by letting Dirk Nowitzki throw out a first pitch, and a bunch of hippies really showing the corporate World Series what’s up.
But none of that matters now, because Fox has made sure that its love of synergy will melt our hearts.
Zooey Deschanel has double duty on Fox: The star of the new series “New Girl” also is performing at the World Series.
Deschanel is from the indie pop duo She & Him. She’ll sing the national anthem at Game 4 of the Major League Baseball seven-game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. It airs Sunday on Fox.

This is great news for two reasons. First, for some unknown, godless reason, MLB has Trace Adkins and Ronnie Dunn singing the National Anthem for games 2 and 3, respectively, and that’s just way too much country music for anyone’s taste. Especially Adkins. I’d love to meet the Mad Libs copy editor who wrote his cookie cutter hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hot Mama” so I can smack him on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.
The good news is that our beloved Zooey isn’t just some darling hipster eye candy. She really can sing, and she already has a little baseball experience. After the jump, some of her performances, as well as a delightfully gratuitous gallery of our favorite Deschanel sister.
