What's the story with Parks anyway? I never really heard. Another knee injury?

Yea I talked with him at the PWT stop in Minnesota and he said that he thinks/hope that he can make the Double up or nothing...

His leg was pretty weak. Lots of atrophy. But he was stoked to be off the crutches...

Paul ~ I talked to his bro and that's not true. He had surgery and then he had some fluid in the knee and ended up having 3-4 more surgeries to fix the problem. I too heard the staph story, but Shane told me that was not true.

I dont know Ant. I heard straight from the horses mouth (parks that is...) that he had a staph infection.

Yeah, I also heard that he had a knee infection, and it got to the point (since he waited a few days to go to the doctor) that it had spread badly.

Anyway, I was at the MN stop too and I was silently pleased to see he was off of the crutches, only because I know what it's like. I wish him the best...

I heard that they had to amputate his leg from the infection but he is practicing on a prosthetic leg. If the prosthetic leg continues to be a problem hyperlite will customize a pair of bindings for his hands. Thatís all I can remember. OK maybe I did hit my head too hard.
