These Diamondbacks fans have 99 problems, but custom jerseys aren’t one

If you're having custom jersey problems, this couple feels bad for you, son.

The Arizona Diamondbacks spotted this pair at a game recently — presumably a guy and his ladyfriend, presumably Jay-Z fans — and shared their photo via Instagram. It's a nod to Jay-Z's 2004 song "99 Problems." The key line in the song being, "I got 99 problems but a [expletive] ain't one."

It's a line that's been meme-ized again and again. In baseball-land, there was a Barry Bonds T-shirt that adapted the phrase back in 2007. While making "99 Problems" references are a bit stale, I do enjoy custom jersey coordination, so this couple is OK in my book.

A Jay-Z baseball reference is timely too — whether the couple knew it or not. On Thursday, Jay-Z was officially certified as an MLB agent, meaning he can legally help Robinson Cano get paiiiiiiiiiiiiid in the offseason. Let's celebrate with a song.

Baseball season's in full swing. Don't miss a thing.
