Mr. Nash? I Have the Phoenix Suns on Line 1 and Your Agent on Line 2: Did Steve Nash play in a pickup game in Hudson River Park this week? More importantly, do the 600 assists count toward my fantasy team in anyway?

I was so excited I ran "any" and "way" together in a tribute to e.e. cummings, justlikethat.

yerfatma, I think the second last photo confirms that it is indeed Steve Nash.

I think the top photo does as well. No one who wasn't famous/ rich would be rocking that hair cut.

Gotta be him. How cool would that be? I can only hope something similar happens to me on a golf course (I have no up's). On the other hand, if he injured himself in someway* would he be ripped to no end? *sign of solidarity

Yeah, the last two photos leave no doubt in my mind. That's awesome. Actually, the last time the Suns were in Toronto, a friend of mine was going to a University of Toronto basketball game the night before the Raptors played. As he walked in the doors of the Athletic Centre, he passed Steve Nash walking out. Maybe Nash plays pickup in every city he hits?

A couple buddies of mine play in a men's hockey league in BC and we're just goofing around playing half-ice shiny one night when the other team failed to show up. The other half of the ice had some other guys just pasing the puck around as well, and so they decided to play a game together. About 30 minutes into the game, my buddy was resting on the bench when a player from the other team came over for a breather and took off his helmet. Yep, Steve Nash. Also can play a mean game of no rules shiny hockey.

HOCKEY SUCKS, on any level, ice hockey, hockey on roller blades, hockey in the street, hockey on roller skates, hockey anywhere, anytime, hockey sucks sooo bad, I would like to see air hockey took out of the arcades too... HOCKEY SUCKS PERIOD Play a real sport, baseball, basketball, football, golf, even lacrosse, ping pong, curling is more exciting than hockey, i'd rather have the flu and be puking and crapping at the same time than to watch one second of a highlight from a hockey game I HATE HOCKEY HOCKEY SUCKS

the troll doesn't even realize we're in a fucking basketball thread...

Can we make a filter for our friend here that substitutes "my mother" for "hockey"? 'Cause that'd be pretty funny.

Shit. All this time I thought I liked hockey. But thanks to a passing interest in basketball, I've just discovered that hockey is awful. Thanks, dude. I probably would have wasted several Saturday nights this coming winter if it weren't for your tip-off.
