The Origins of the Three Goggles

In case you were unaware, Blazersmania has been swept up by the Three Goggles, a (ridiculous) hand sign the players throw after making a three pointer. Allegedly created by Patty Mills, the meme has its very own T-shirt available at games, plus it is now referenced by name by team PA announcer Mark Mason. But while watching last night's Blazers victory over the Milwaukee Bucks it occurred to me that Mills did not create the Three Goggles, someone else did. Someone far more sinister than a goofy Aussie backup point guard.

This is the creator of the Three Goggles. He expects an apology, Patty. If you don't, dude will eat you.
