NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Oklahoma City’s recent use of Macklemore’s hit song ‘Can’t Hold Us’ and how it has sparked a response from the Seattle rapper. Aside from vocalizing his support for Seattle sports teams, Macklemore is also a good friend of Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and has been an avid supporter of bringing the Supersonics back. Performing at the Sonics’ rally that was held awhile back, Macklemore recently showed his support for the Sonics’ cause at Seattle’s ‘We Day’.

This piece is about the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis song “My oh My.” An announcer like Dave will never be forgotten, but this video cements his legacy into our hearts a bit more than it already was. His catchphrases will be passed down from generation to generation as folk lore. We miss you Dave.
