No one is going to mistake the group of five Oklahoma Today editors for the varsity basketball team anytime soon, but like a lot of Oklahomans we enjoy watching a good ball game. One of the best tickets in the state to grab right now is for a seat at a Potawatomi Fire game. This professional basketball team based in Shawnee's FireLake Arena and owned by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation had a stranglehold on their league last season and ultimately walked away with the national championship. The Fire tips off their title defense season March 1 at home against the Enid Outlaws. Fire coach Mark Dannhoff joins the podcast to share what the team needs to do to be the first team in their league ever to repeat as champs. 

Also on this week's show, the editors share some of their own favorite sports memories, and podvents inspires talk of spitting llamas. We hope you enjoy!
