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.
