Over the past few years, I have overall soured on Drake. I still like his music, and will throw on some of the old tapes when I’m feeling nostalgic.
The fact that he got exposed as somewhat of a fraud last summer by Pusha T made me realize that he isn’t really on another level. He’s human, just like you and me. And thats totally cool. It just causes fans like myself to feel differently about him.
Starting a couple of years ago, Drake started showing up to sporting events, decked out in successful team’s gear. He always just happens to be a fan of say, Kentucky Basketball. The guy from Toronto just happens to love UK? Nice.
But a funny thing started to happen. Every time Drake happens to be in attendance, supporting one of his teams, that team somehow lost every single time. This is to the point where if you look into the suites and see Drake at, say the Bruins/Maple Leafs playoff game where Toronto got absolutely smoked by Boston, you may feel good about your chances, assuming you don’t pull for good teams. And guess who is there in one of those luxury boxes:
Once again, Drake manages to look ridiculous.
I was laughing quite hysterically last night when I saw Drake sitting on the sidelines at Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Toronto versus the 76ers. This really spelled trouble for the Raptors.
And then, this happened:
Drake, being very aware of the curse, decided to turn the tables and wear 76ers shorts underneath his pants while he was at the game. And how did the game end?
You know what, Drake? …I like the move. Well played.
