"I used to get locks, lighters [thrown at me]. It was Serbia. I played on a Croatian team. So when we went to Serbia, there were times when we had probably three busloads of police, 20 or 25 cops that had to barricade us when we got from the bus to the building," Anderson said. "Locks, lighters. They used to take off the metal things on the toilet, because they used to have metal detectors to get into the arena, break those off the toilet [and throw them at us]. When you’re warming up [he mimics the sound of something flying by his face.], ‘Oh man, I can’t even warm up. You almost hit me with a lock.’..."
