So when the Chiclets boys were in Denver for the Western Conference Finals, we were psyched that the big man made the trip to the city from his place in the mountains. And he regaled with stories that had our jaws dropping over and over.

Bournemouth boss Scott Parker is confident his squad can rise to the challenge of a tough run of Premier League games – starting with a trip to champions Manchester City.
The Cherries got their return to the top flight up and running with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend.
Following the visit to the Etihad Stadium, Bournemouth host Arsenal and then head to Liverpool after a midweek Carabao Cup tie at Norwich.
Parker feels his squad, boosted this week by the arrival of Argentina defender Marcos Senesi, can build on their positive start.
“Overall, it has been a good week with three points on the board after the first game of the season,” he said.
“Now we are going into a difficult few fixtures, but these are the challenges we are going to embrace and we are going to take on.

In an interview with milehighhockey.com, Parker defended Bertuzzi and spoke disparagingly of Moore, being quoted as saying “he (Moore) always thought he was better than everybody else.
