It was a thing even before Drake started hanging out with footballers from the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga, having affected teams and athletes in the baseball, basketball, MMA and American football worlds:

All three of these results occurred over the last couple weeks. The real madness though came when Drake took this photo with PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa:
PSG lost to Lille 5-1 last weekend. Do you know how unlikely Lille beating PSG is, let alone thrashing them 5-1? It has to be the Drake curse.
