IFWT_Johnny x Drake

Drake is reportedly a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan so it was only right that he was there at the Final Four to cheer his team on as they played the Wisconsin Badgers for a spot in the NCAA championship game.  He wasn’t there alone however, in addition to numerous bodyguards he was also joined by his good friend, former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

The two friends took in the exciting game which Kentucky won thanks to another clutch three-pointer by Aaron Harrison.  Following the game Drake joined the boys in the Kentucky locker room and celebrated with the championship bound team.

Everyone was pretty skeptical of Drake’s fandom, some even comparing him to his boss Lil Wayne who’s a notorious bandwagon hopper.  One reporter came across Drake in the arena and asked him the question everyone wanted to know, “how long have you been a Kentucky fan?”

Now as long as I can remember Drake has been a UK fan and I even remember him getting a ring the last time they won (although it was just two years ago).  But sports reporter @stackmack used her keen memory and did some digging.  She found a picture of UK coach John Calipari attending Drake’s graduation so maybe the relationship is pretty close.
