Big Papi Has 99 Problems

New York Yankees fan (and Boston Red Sox hater) rapper Jay-Z is suing the pants of David Ortiz.

Apparently, the rapper and his business partner, Juan Perez, filed a lawsuit against the slumping designated hitter on Thursday for copyright infringement. Big Papi opened a night club in the Dominican Republic and called it "Forty-Forty" which is similar in its name to Jay-Z's "40/40 Club" sports bars.

You know what? This is so dumb. All three of these jokers have more money than God as it is. I'm thrilled to see them fight over their Benjamins.

Maybe MLB should sue Ortiz, since he's never even had 40 homers and 40 steals in a season. Not even in little league.

LOL, Jay-Z doesn't have a 40-40 season, either. Should MLB sue him?

You're right that this is a joke. Hopefully it's dismissed. I like Jay-Z, but get real. Jose Canseco should sue Jay-Z since he's the charter member.

Maybe all the artists that Jay-z has "sampled" from over the years should take him to court

But really, COME ON! There is enough 40/40 to go around for all of the rich famous guys.

Papi should counter-sue Jay-Z's wife for tortuting me with her "music". She sounds like a dying cat

Seems kind of brilliant. Go to a club in America, rip it off completely, and bring the same club to the Dominican. Now the only problem may be that Jay-z is just about a billionaire and he throws some real lawyer money around

Trademarks and Copyrights aren't valid outside of U.S. territory I don't believe. Should be tossed. I know Trademarks aren't.

However, because Big Papi resides in the US for the majority of the year that may change things.
