Matthias isn't an Oklahoman, never been here, but he's Thundering Up way out in Southern California, and that's why I love his utterly random ode to Thunder fans; the best fans in the world he said when he posted the video on YouTube two days ago.
After seeing it, you understand of course why I had to know more about this guy. Who is this topless bard, and just where is his shirt?
We talked via Skype, just after Game 2 ended Wednesday night. And yes, this native of Canada hopes to someday make a pilgrimage to see the Oklahoma oh ho, City Thunder ay hay.
And before he hung up, I knew I had to ask for an encore performance of his Thunder chant, shirtless of course.
That's Matthias, kind of like Elvis, or Cher, just Matthias, Thundering Up on the West Coast.
