    Gary Jordao, a San Jose caterer, raps to root on the Warriors in front of the O.Co Coliseum.

    A San Jose-based caterer - and uber-Warriors fan - is taking an Ashkon-like approach to rooting on his favorite basketball team, with a rap song called "Blue and Yellow."

    Gary Jordao's goal is to have thousands, or more, people see his semi-professionally mixed video, where he raps in front of the O.Co Coliseum in Oakland, cheering on the Warriors, an underdog team that are now one win away from advancing into the Western Conference NBA semi-finals.

    "Music and the Warriors are my life," the 28-year-old said.

    The Modesto man who drives to his San Jose catering job every day is not the first  musician to take to YouTube to support a team.

    The East Bay's Ashkon Davaran reworked Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and Queen's "We Are the Champions" to make a name for himself as the ultimate San Francisco Giants fan.

    Jordao's got a ways to go, however.

    As of Wednesday, his YouTube video had about 22,000 views, and Ashkon's had nearly 3 million.
