With the Baltimore Ravens kicking off their training camp last week and holding four practices from Wednesday through Saturday, the last one inside of M&T Bank Stadium, it made sense for the boys to have a little bit of fun on Saturday night.
World-renowned rapper Drake, currently on "It's All A Blur" tour across the nation, stopped in Washington D.C. for a show on Saturday night, and many members of the Ravens squad were enjoying it live on location, as reported by Cassie Calvert on the team's website.
As Calver herself wrote, Sunday marked the first day off for the Ravens through the training camp portion of the preseason. That's something all of "Lamar Jackson and teammates Tyler Huntley, James Proche, and Odell Beckham Jr." took advantage of by deciding to attend Capital One Arena in D.C. to watch the show live.
Drake was so hyped by the presence of some of his Ravens "friends" that he even brought superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson to the stage at some point, as captured by the official Baltimore Ravens X account.
"This is my quarterback right here," Drake said about Lamar.
Caitlin Moore of The Baltimore Banner added another golden nugget of information to the story, reporting that the Ravens players arrived at the show via "fancy car and potentially fancy aviation."
Jackson dropped an IG story calling the ride a "Maybach helicop," which is slang for Mercedes-Benz helicopter, which is probably something like this.
Anyway, the important part of this story is what follows: Drake and the feared Drake Curse.
In an article researching such a thing, The Sun put together a comprehensive list of athletes having gone through it. The list includes MMA fighter Conor McGregor, soccer star Jadon Sancho, or former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Will Lamar fall victim to the curse of Drake and never return to his betters levels of play? Only time will tell.
