Former Matchbox Twenty singer Rob Thomas came to Stifel Theatre in St. Louis Sunday night to promote his new album, “Chip Tooth Smile.” And there was a Stanley Cup surprise so smooth, it might make you feel a little unwell. Rob, wanting to be lonely no more, welcomed a guest to the stage: the St. Louis Blues’ smiling, chipped-tooth rookie Robert Thomas.
The 20-year-old center, who scored six points on the Blues’ path to victory, brought the bent Stanley Cup with him. The crowd, which I’m guessing consisted of yourself or someone like you, gave Rob, Robert, and the NHL’s championship trophy a standing ovation as the pair smiled under the bright lights.

Rob’s photo, posted sometime before 3AM, had the caption: “Only time I will be able to say ‘ladies and gentlemen, Robert Thomas and the Stanley cup!'”
Before the concert, Rob Thomas walked into his dressing room and was greeted by a real world poster of Robert Thomas advertising the “Chip Tooth Smile” album with a broken-tooth grin of his own.
It was getting late, but after the concert, the Thomases crowded around a table, and Robert autographed a jersey for three-time Grammy-winning Rob.
Rob Thomas’s album “Chip Tooth Smile” is on sale now. The Blues will hold their home opener at the Enterprise Center, adjacent to the Stifel Theatre concert venue, where they’ll raise their Stanley Cup banner before playing against the Washington Capitals. I’m sure that the experience will make the Caps, who lost in the first round of last year’s postseason, soul sick and be a particularly long day for Caps fans.
