Ryan Reaves: I think it’s being part of a good group of guys that you can travel and have fun with and go to war with every day. I love being part of the group and having that camaraderie.
#AskReaves - Who's the tuffest guy you ever fought.— phil edwards (@jalop515) October 23, 2013
#AskReaves What's it mean, to you, to wear the Note?— James Harrison (@bluenote_jdh) October 24, 2013
Reaves: It’s unreal. There are really, really good sports fans here. The city loves all of their sports teams and really gets behind them. It’s not one of those sports cities where you go out and you’re seen and they pester you all night. Here, they say good game, and that’s the best part of it, just the city itself.
Reaves: My favorite team was actually Colorado. I followed Patrick Roy from Montreal to Colorado. Believe it or not, he was my favorite player. Joe Sakic was one, too. The first time I played there was kind of surreal. It was an exhibition game and it was kind of a dream to play there, but I was playing for the ‘Note. That’s not too bad either.
Reaves: There’s a lot. I go back and forth a lot. I’m going to have to go back to my Peoria days. Every time I fought, Nelly would come on with “Pimp Juice.”
