Take a Shot! is the incredible true story of how three unlikely partners - world-famous fitness icon Jake Steinfeld, former Princeton University lacrosse star Dave Morrow, and son of a TV preacher Tim Robertson - broke all the rules and beat all the odds to create Major League Lacrosse.

When Jake recruited Dave to be his partner, neither had any idea what was in store for them, nor what it took to start something like this (after all, who does?). But they had something more important: a gut instinct that, from day one,... Download and start listening now!
