Started From the Bottom Now We Here (on the Jumbotron)

Former WW editor Michael Mannheimer creates an Internet meme at last night's Blazers game. We made it, y'all!

All right, I know we've overloaded a bit on Drake this week here at LocalCut, but we'd be remiss in not mentioning this brilliant (if I do say so myself, and I do) sign from last night's Blazers game, mocked up by former WW Assistant Music Editor Michael Mannheimer reading "OKC: Softer Than Drake." 

It apparently made it on the Moda Center Jumbotron a few times, and the Twittersphere exploded (in a flurry of about 18 Tweets). "To the person who brought the "OKC: Softer than Drake" sign to tonight's game," wrote Curtis Haley, "you are the hero Portland needs." Blazersedge picked up on it as well, calling "the sign of the night." It even made it outside Portland, impressing hoops writer Holly Mackenzie, who's based in Drizzy's hometown of Toronto:

As reported in The Columbian, most of the Blazers attended the Drake show at Moda Center on Tuesday, the night before their big game against their division rival. It's a good thing they pulled out a 111-104 victory, or Portland would have yet another reason to blame Drake for ruining their week.
