By Michael Nelson / May 6, 2014

Major League Lacrosse: “Jay Z Would Not Last One Minute On A Lacrosse Field”

By Chris DeVille / April 29, 2014
When Jay Z attempted to subliminally diss Drake by calling him "soft as a lacrosse team" on DJ Khaled's new posse cut "They Don't Love You No More," my first thought was that lacrosse is one of the most violent sports imaginable. It's basically 22 people running around battering each other with sticks. You… More »
