Well it was a hot one in St. Louis on Sunday night when Robert Thomas and Rob Thomas shared the stage at Stifel Theater.

The Blues forward surprised concertgoers by making an appearance with the Stanley Cup with the similarly named rock star. Rob Thomas did the honors of the introduction in which he said, "All my friends in St. Louis, literally, this is either the only or definitely the first time I will be able to say this: I want you guys to welcome Robert Thomas and the Stanley Cup."

The hockey-playing Thomas also had a couple of gifts for the musician. He'd posed for a recreation of Rob Thomas' Chip Tooth Smile album cover and left it in the singer's dressing room.

He also gave the singer a Blues Thomas jersey signed to Rob. So smooth.
