Ok, I’m only joking. Well, maybe a little.

Back in 2003, Jay-Z and partners Desiree Gonzalez and Juan Pérez opened up the original 40/40 Club sports bar in NYC, which also fashioned itself as a night club. You may remember Jay-Z referencing it in the song Dirt Off Your Shoulders.

The club has since opened up in Atlantic City and in Vegas, but the Vegas club has since closed down.

He made the Yankee hat famous

The name 40/40 club is a baseball term and is a reference to a player who hits 40 home runs and steals 40 bases all in the same season. The first ever player to do it was Jose Canseco in 1988. Since then, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, and Alfonso Soriano have also done it. Willie Mays has stated in the past that if it was such an important thing to do, he would’ve done it every year.

According to Rolling Stone’s website, Boston Red Sox slugger David “Big Papi” Ortiz has opened up his own Santa Domingo nightclub and titled it “Forty-Forty”.

And I don’t think Jay-Z and his partners are very happy about that.

“[Jay-Z and Perez] have accused Ortiz of trading on the fame, value and goodwill of their name through his club Forty/Forty and its website, www.fortyforty.net, which they say has caused their business ‘marketplace confusion and damage,” reads the lawsuit. Jay-Z’s suit goes on to argue that the shared name isn’t accidental, as Ortiz “has been a patron [at the 40/40 Club] on several occasions long before he opened his infringing Forty/Forty Club.”

Now, Big Papi hasn’t ever come close to joining the exclusive 40/40 club as base stealing isn’t his game. He’s going to be lucky to join the 20/1 club this year if he keeps playing the way he has been. So maybe “Forty-Forty” means something entirely different to him.

Jay-Z’s Yankees’ biggest rivals are the Red Sox. And Jay has rhymed that he made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can. But that can’t be a part of this right?
