Based on "Take a Shot! The Remarkable Story of Perseverance, Friendship and A Really Crazy Adventure" by Jake Steinfeld and Dave Morrow. The book chronicles the roller coaster adventures of the first professional outdoor lacrosse league. Described as "Moneyball" meets "The Hangover," "Take a Shot!" tells the tale of three men from vastly different worlds- Jake, the brash Hollywood fitness icon and driving force behind Major League Lacrosse; Dave, a shy Ivy Leaguer from blue-collar Detroit and the ultimate fish out of water who ultimately becomes a success story in his own right; and Tim Robertson, the son of a televangelist and a multimedia mogul-who teamed up to try the impossible: start a professional sports league at a time when other leagues were crashing and burning around them. The book chronicles the true story of their wild search for investors and team owners, the setbacks that nearly derailed the league time and again and the emotional and triumphant debut of Major League Lacrosse, the first professional outdoor lacrosse league. Their roller coaster ride blends humor, inside sports intrigue and inspirational life lessons along the way. Lionsgate has optioned the book for development into a dramatic television series.
