"the City of Portland is trying to collect more than $250 from a former transportation worker, after he decorated a road in front of Under Armour's new Southwest Barbur outpost with a Nike swoosh on his last day of work"

According to the Portland Bureau of Transportation, on Friday, July 28, now-retired traffic crew leader Kirk Kennedy fashioned a swoosh out of thermoplastic—a moldable material the bureau uses to install things like sharrows and bike lane markers on the road. Kennedy then used a blow torch to fuse the subversive swoosh onto a roadway in front of Under Armour's facility at 2815 SW Barbur, as co-workers looked on.
