Video: The Sochi Bear Can’t Get His Head To Fit In The Front Seat Of A Car

It’s been a really bad week for the Sochi Bear, one of Russia’s Winter Olympics mascots, and it started a few days before the Russian men’s hockey team was eliminated from competition after losing to Finland 3-1.

WATCH: Kansas' Andrew Wiggins hits game-winner on broken play

It wasn’t the prettiest game-winning bucket in the history of college basketball, but I doubt that Kansas fans will care.
