The rapper went to watch the Toronto Raptors play on Wednesday night and the shirt he was wearing was not in the colors of the team. It had the face of Doris Burke, a 50 year old NBA sideline reporter for ESPN and ABC, printed on it along with the words “Woman Crush Everyday” written underneath the picture.
When ESPN’s Israel Gutierrez asked about the shirt, Drake said on camera:
“My inspiration is Doris, I think she is a stunning woman, incredible at what she does. I wish she was here tonight, but I’m sending all my love to her. I don’t know what camera to look at, but blowing a lot of kisses…Dinner at my house any time. As long as she comes alone.”
Soon enough he also received the response he was waiting for. Burn tweeted [email protected] dinner is on” not forgetting to add a heart emoji. It worked! The creepy shirt with the face of your crush method is no longer a fruitless attempt to charm someone because Drake was successful.
I seems like this is not his first try in courting the woman, though. Doris told The Cut that Drake has flirted with her before: “Drake turned around — my seat at Game 6 was right behind him — makes a heart shape [with his hands], and points at me. I’m looking around behind me to see who’s there, turn back to him, and then he points and he does it again. I texted my daughter and said, ‘You need to know Drake just did this to me.'”
We are certain her 23 year old daughter, Sarah was no less than impressed and probably wishes it was her.
