So a while back, this photo hit the internet …
Yes, it’s shit singer Drake wearing a Nottingham Forest kit.
I was inundated by people sending the image to me, probably because I am the only sad bastard Forest fan I know.
At first I was kind of excited by it.
I loathe Drake with every fibre in my body, but there was something super cool in the fact he was in my teams shirt.
Of course I knew he knew fuck-all about us and the fact he was wearing it was more because we have the best logo of any football team in history than anything more meaningful, but it still felt surprisingly good.
Until I got sent this.
However, after the misguided and momentary disappointment died down, there were 2 things that struck me.
1. If I was wearing an utterly horrendous pink Juventus shirt, I’d want to be photoshopped out of it too. And I’m a man that wears Birkenstocks.
[Nottingham Related Fact: Juventus traditional ‘black and white stripe’ shirt was inspired by the kit of the oldest football club in the World … good old Notts County]
2. As alarming as Drake’s taste is – and that pink Juventus shirt means it is even worse than I imagined – I have to say it’s pleasing to know even he wouldn’t stoop so low as to wear a Derby County shirt.
