Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins was the first major client to sign with Jay-Z’s sports agency, Roc Nation Sports. When she signed on board, Jay-Z himself surprised her with a Mercedes as a gift.

With only 46 days until Notre Dame kicks off the season at home against Temple, we Irish fans are starting to get a little antsy. It's OK! As I've stated before, we all gotta do what we all gotta do to get through these final weeks- whatever that might be.
