If the Thunder don't have a fight song, they do now
Thunder fan creates a fight song for Oklahoma City to help the team push through the playoffs.

In the world of professional sports, the
Oklahoma City Thunder are still a relatively young franchise (if you forget about all of that Seattle stuff).
And in the sports world, it takes a little time to establish your traditions, your logo, your colors, your mascot.
How about a fight song? We aren't sure if they have a fight song yet.
But, fear not, because one big Thunder fan in Southern California has taken care of that.
The fellow goes by the name of "Matthias" and, sans shirt, has posted a video that has gone viral over the last few days (33,000+ hits on YouTube since it was posted this weekend) of his rendition of the Oklahoma City Thunder fight song.
One key to any good fight song is that it has to be easy to remember so that the crowd can sing along. Matthias has taken care of that.
"Oklahoma ... oh oh. City Thunder ... hey hey!"
Repeat. Reuse. Recycle.
The Thunder are now heading to Houston up 2-0 in their first round playoff matchup with the Rockets
Here's hoping that Matthias might find a way to Space City to lead the Thunder faithful at the Toyota Center with this chant during Games 3 and 4.
And here's hoping he might find a Kevin Durant jersey to wear while he's doing it.
