Hall & Oates won't go for that

Pop stars Hall & Oates, who played a concert after a Rays game last month, were scheduled to do the same in July at Chase Field, home of the Arizona D-Backs. But the pop duo has pulled out because Arizona's immigration law.

In a statement, Hall & Oates said:
"In addition to our personal convictions, we are standing in solidarity with the music community in our boycott of performing in Arizona at this time. We would like to emphasize that this has nothing to do with the management of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have been professional and cooperative throughout our dealings with them. This is our response to a very specific action of the state.''

Below is a video that symbolizes Hall & Oates' decision. I wish I could claim this is my joke, but credit must go to the Sporting Blog, who came up with this idea first. Still, enjoy "I Can't Go For That.''
