Memorable games, plays, tours, off field event: Early in my career against Sarnia where my family jewels were quite rudely grabbed during the opposition's attempt to tackle me. In response I placed the ball down, let him pick it up, then lifted him over my shoulders and body slammed him...he bounced!

Family: 3 children that I know of (19, 21, 25)
Miscellaneous: First Big Ten tournament spring of 1974 at Iowa playing in the snow and subfreezing temperatures. Bruce Kingsbury projectile vomiting (5 plus feet) at Angelo Tocco's frat house during a party (circa 1975) after failing to sing the proper words and chugging 3 large beers in a space of 2 minutes as my future ex-wife, who was attending her first (and last) rugby party, looked on in amazement.
