In-Season News: Men's and Women's Basketball
It's game day for MBB. The Bears play at 6:00 in Norman on ESPN2. This game was considered a "must win" by the podcast committee, and it won't be an easy win; OU has been a surprise team in the Big 12 this year, and our last shot against the Sooners ended before a final shot could be attempted. If this game turns out well, Baylor's tournament hopes are alive, but will require a fortuitous run to come to any sort of fruition.
The Lady Bears are back in action on Sunday in a rematch against Oklahoma State. The first round of this particular series ended with a Baylor win in an overtime thriller. Hopefully the ladies will continue their unceremonious rout of the conference in the Ferrell Center.

Dogecoin, and a bit of sadness...
The Sochi Olympics, besides being the most expensive of all time, are also an apparent farce on several levels. They're also the current stomping ground of the famous Jamaican bobsled team, which managed to raise the funds to make the trip via... Dogecoin?
The meme-inspired cryptocurrency was sent en masse by Redditors and other internet-based subspecies of humanity, but it wouldn't be Sochi if something didn't go terribly wrong. As it turns out, the team's luggage was lost during the trip.
Speaking of doges, some of you will recall that I mentioned my dog in Thursday's DBR. Sadly, I have to report that PennyDog passed on Wednesday night, and my parents put off telling me so I wouldn't be distracted from my tests at the end of the week. I'm taking it well, but losing a childhood pet is difficult and I'm glad that I was able to make the trip home to see my family, even if I didn't make it in time to see her. I miss her, but it was better that this happened after I was already accustomed to not seeing her every day. Thank you all for your kind words on the subject.
