Nash to buy all of England, or at least the football part

I like it when I get to blog about soccer, and since I’m going to be in Toronto when David Beckham rolls into town with the LA Galaxy next week I guess I’m going to have to take every chance I can get. So when Victoria native Steve Nash started talking about buying the English Premier League Club Tottenham Hospurs [lg] I got kind of excited. I mean arguably the most famous non-Celine Dion Canadian is going to buy a football team, how cool is that?

It’s not because I like Tottenham that I’m excited, as a Gunner I can’t stand them, but because as much as we might think Beckham’s famous in North America Steve Nash actually is famous in North America. I mean people on the streets of Vancouver, Calgary, LA, Havana and New York understand what Nash does. And having a famous basketball star owning, or co-owning, a football club just might help with football’s popularity in Canada. I mean the man opens a gym in Vancouver and we think it’s the greatest thing since bread slicing first began [snsc].

I feel bad for the guy, being a Tottenham fan must be hard and he’s always seemed so nice and non-crazy. Still I guess there’s no accounting for taste. Ah well, it’ll give him something to do when he retires aside from modeling Canucks jerseys.
