There was so much rain they needed a yacht rocker

Who knew the National Anthem could be so smooth?

John Oates, the (more?) handsome half of the late 70s/early 80s smooth rock duo Hall & Oates, sang the anthem at last night's Game 4.5 of the World Series in Philadelphia.

Oates asked the audience to help him out, but no assistance was needed for this legend of smoothness. With the singing, anyway. It looks like he could use a stylist.

The natural question when you see Oates, of course, is "Whither Hall?" Well, it turns out Oates got the call to sing the anthem yesterday morning around 8 a.m. because Daryl Hall couldn't make it.

Don't worry. Hall wasn't impaled by a harpoon in the back alley song writing duel of 1978. He just came down with the flu.

Sweet Jesus, that's smooth. GO PHILLIES if this game ever gets played.
