MLB Jeopardy...Part 11


For $1,000 in the category of douche bag teams that are mistakenly regarded as the class of Major League Baseball, the answer is: The idiot franchise that let a rapper diss them lyrically on their own field prior to a World Series game and later rewarded him with a championship ring.








Question: Who are the New York Yankees?

Correct! The Yankees invited Jay-Z and Alicia Keys to perform their single "Empire State of Mind" prior to game 2 of the World Series last year at Yankee Stadium. The track contains the lyric, "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can." Yankees fans in attendance cheered.

Firstly, the phrase is not true. Also, the Yankees should not have let that happen. If the front office wasn't aware of the lyric before the concert was booked, why didn't the players take exception at some point?

The team should be embarrassed for giving Jay-Z a World Championship ring after he clearly took credit for people buying their merchandise.

And if you didn't notice in the above photograph, the inscription under the brim of Jay-Z's cap that he wore to Yankee Stadium this week, contains that questionable lyric "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can." Yes, he's still making the absurd claim and the Yankees are still dumb enough to invite him into their home.

The Yankees and their fans are clearly simple-minded to allow this embarrassment to continue. I don't believe that other organizations and their fans would be so moronic.

It's no wonder a great majority of sports fans hate the Yankees. They aren't even bright enough to know when a celebrity takes a verbal crap on them. If a big-time Philadelphia musician made a similar claim about one of Philadelphia's teams, I assure you that he or she would be met with serious negative fan reactions, would no longer be held in the same regard and would forever damage his or her career.

NEW YORK! These streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you...to look stupid in front of the whole world.

I am not biased against any team.

The song doesn't make the Yankees idiots. Rewarding a guy that disrespects the team, the front office and the fans does.

Blindly defending your favorite team, that's original!

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
