Jay-Z may have 99 problems, but being an officially licensed sports agent ain't one!
Hova has already made a big splash on the sports scene as his agency, Roc Nation Sports, is starting to recruit some players! But now he's making it OFFICIAL as he is now a licensed agent for the NBA and MLB!!
Jay had already signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, but because he wasn't an official agent yet, he had to partner up with Creative Artists Agency to make the deal legit! Now it's only a matter of time before he's able to sign players on his own!
Roc Nation Sports hasn't gotten any basketball players yet, but according to sources,

As a part owner of the Brooklyn Nets and having his very own sports agency, it doesn't look like there's ANYTHING that can stop Jay-Z from dominating the world of sports!
Except for maybe an NFL investigation!!
Hova is currently under the microscope after he signed rookie New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith to Roc Nation Sports just last week!

Hey Lance Armstrong!
We're sorry to hear that you're unable to take part in a swimming competition in Texas, but maybe you shouldn't have cheated in sports for all those years and then followed it all up with lies. You'd probably be able to compete in anything you wanted had you not done that! Just sayin'!
Armstrong wanted to compete at the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships in his home town of Austin this weekend. It has nothing to do with cycling, it isn't subjected to USA or World Anti-Doping Agency codes. No prob, right?

Hulk Hogan just signed with The Agency Group to represent him and book theaters for his new live production, “Outside the Ring with Hulk Hogan.”
The production will be held world-wide for the time being.
Said Seth Shomes, CEO of Day After Day Productions:
“In Conversation: Outside the Ring with Hulk Hogan is a brand new no holds barred live theatrical production with the ‘Hulkster’. Fans will get to hear Hulk Hogan talk about his life and wrestling career, tell behind-the-scenes stories, watch rare video, and participate in a question and answer period at the end of the show. We will be booking a few shows this fall but will launch with worldwide exclusive dates in 2012.”
Life hasn’t always been peaches and Muscle Milk for Hulk, and this show is a way for him to vent about it!
