Day jobs: Co-creators of Emmy-nominated comedy series "Portlandia"
Fans since: 2010, when Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen filmed the first episodes of "Portlandia"
In their own words: "The best moment comes afterward, in the locker room, as [LaMarcus] Aldridge, [Thomas] Robinson, [Robin] Lopez and [Damian] Lillard sit dejectedly. Toni [Brownstein] and Candace [Armisen] can't understand why the players aren't excited about the new Blazer Dancers. The players are bummed because 'we lost the game.' But the Blazer Dancers read poetry, Toni and Candace say. Reading poetry at a basketball game doesn't really fit, the players say." —Oregonian review of Portlandia, Season 4, Episode 7 "Trail Blazers," in 2014
