SB Nation: Portland city councilman channels Richard Sherman in feud with newspaper

January 21, 2014 | SBNation.com--  Portland, Oregon, is officially America's greatest city ... and it has nothing to do with the "Dream of the 90s," or maybe it kind of does.

We're the best City Council in the league. And we're not going to be bullied by some sorry Orange County right-wing publisher. We'll be here after you're gone, Mr. N.
