The Toronto Raptors won Canada’s first NBA championship Thursday, spawning a wave of celebration from fans across the country.

The Raptors’ victory also spawned some clever — and hilarious — reactions on social media.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) had an important question for the Raptors when they come back to the Great White North:

“God” — or whoever handles “God’s” Twitter account — appeared to cheer for one particular team, prompting one user to ask, “See, knew, IF there is a God, he’d be Canadian.”

The Raptors themselves suspected a higher plan was being carried out.

Olympic skating champion Tessa Virtue posted a photo from her viewing party — apparently she and her friends couldn’t find a bigger screen.

And the Rogers Cup tennis tournament jumped in on the excitement, too.

Then there was this tweet, from actor and comedian Vir Das, who noted that while the Raptors just won their first championship, it’s not the first time a raptor has won anything.

Meanwhile, Export Development Canada (EDC) wasn’t being funny when it noted the history of the game — but it was all too happy to see a Canadian export make its way back to where it came from.
