JP Flaim: When did you walk away from being kind of the chief heckler there, at Wizards games? … We grew up watching you heck Charles Barkley and the likes at the Cap Center, when did you kind of retire from heckling guys.Ficker: Plus they always kept it clean at the games. But I read up on them and I was right there, and I knew that they were easily distractable. And rather than keeping their mind on beating the Bullets, they would look at me and look away …Eric Bickel: We understand, but why’d you stop?Jason Bishop: When’d you stop going to games.Ficker: I stopped going to games in 1998. I went to every game for 12 years. Then, when they moved downtown, they were supposed to give us similar seats and I had longevity over anyone in the section behind the bench. But they would not give me the same seats, so I said thanks but no thanks, and just turned my attention elsewhere to my kids athletics and now very much the Maryland wrestling in the Big Ten.JP: Very cool.
