Jay Z may have made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can, but he apparently doesn’t know a Yankees player when he sees one:
Funniest story of the afterparty was when Jay Z thought @BoomerWells33 was Curt Shilling and asked him about bloody sock

I hope against hope that Wells played it totally cool, went with it and explained to Jay Z that “yeah, I totally faked that crap for the glory. My ankle was fine. It was barbecue sauce, actually.” Then I hope he tried to explain to Jay Z how the Earth was 6,000 years old and how he would’ve gotten to be in the “Celebrity Jeopardy” sketch if he wasn’t a Republican.
