The Connecticut Huskies won the 2014 men’s basketball championship tonight over the Kentucky Wildcats, 60-54. The win gave UConn its fourth title in 15 years, and also allowed Huskies star player Shabazz Napier to speak his piece. Euphoria for all involved with the program.
One person not having so great of a night? The Internet’s favorite voodoo doll, Drake, whose glum picture post-game could’ve easily substituted for his Take Care album cover.

In the minutes following UConn’s celebrations, a photo with Drake and former Huskies player Rip Hamilton became fodder for the hating-ass masses, who used the picture to paint Drake as the bandwagon fan everyone suspects he is. However, Rip posted that photo before the game. And the shirt that Drake’s wearing evokes more Kentucky royal blue than UConn navy.
That didn’t stop social media networks from sticking pins in the man in post after post, the best of which we’ve compiled below. Because if there’s one thing this NCAA basketball tournament needed was more Drake jokes. Boy did we get them.

Drake in team clothes is like the red stuff in the Sixth Sense. Once you see one you start finding it everywhere you look.

Drake started on the bandwagon, now he's here.

Drake will hop on Christian Dior Denim Flow and shoutout all 68 teams in the tournament in his verse.

s/o to Drake for deconstructing archaic binaries of sporting fandom. One love.
