Drake opened up his Philadelphia show on Monday night with a h̶o̶l̶o̶g̶r̶a̶m̶ deepfake of his younger self wearing a Phillies jersey:

Phillies fans are officially on high alert because I guess the “Drake Curse” that thwarted teams like Kentucky basketball and Man United and guys like Conor McGregor is still around:

The Yankees are 2-4 since Drake brought Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton out with him. The Detroit Tigers are 9-10 since he made a stop there. But the Cubs, Red Sox, and Nationals all have winning records since he made a stop in those towns.

My official response: Curse is broken. Honestly, I thought the “Drake Curse” died with the Raptors championship back in 2019. Remember everything that happened during that title run? The Kawhi shot plus KD and Klay Thompson both getting injured while Drake watched all of it unfold courtside is enough to prove it. Most recently he won $800k betting on the Nuggets title. The curse is dead. World Series is back on!

Plus, the Phillies have already dealt with Drake’s dark magic before they even realized it. Explain how they win it all in 2008 when Drake was rocking Phillies jerseys in Little League (I can’t confirm this picture was or wasn’t taken in 1993):
