This was not met with rave reviews on some corners of the internet:
Drake is quite possibly the biggest bandwagon celebrity sports fan in the history of modern professional athletics, as he has a hilarious-yet-sickening tendency of latching onto the biggest athletes in American sports and celebrating their wins with them like his season tickets belong with the other WAGs.
Haha…little does this deluded writer know that “latching onto the biggest athletes in American sports and celebrating their wins with them” is the first step to making said athlete come sign for the team you support. RR salutes Drake’s master plan to land Kevin Durant and wishes him the best of luck.
As for the ESPYS, unless they have Anne Hathaway hosting it in her birthday suit, count me out.
Other corners of the vast bunghole that is known as the internet has taken a new swing at things, and go as far to suggest that he might be a candidate to replace Letterman:
He’s more than just a rapper, or just a singer. Regardless of your feelings about him, Drake can be charismatic and funny, and he’ll serve as a decent replacement for Jon Hamm, who was always a somewhat curious host. Maybe he’ll parley this into replacing Letterman. There is some precedent, at least.
At this point you might be wondering just why this is even on RR, and to that I remind you that he’s a global ambassador, which basically means he gets to park in handicap zones anywhere in the world and get away with it.
