Steve Nash on Tottenham: “I’d like to be an owner”
Yesterday's potential celebrity soccer owner was Drew Carey. Today it's Steve Nash. The Canadian orange-baller's love for the game is as known as Carey's but runs much deeper. Nash was a soccer player well before he got balls-deep into hoops, and it's somewhat of a family business; his brother is on the Canadian national team and the Vancouver Whitecaps while his father played professionally in South Africa.
There's a load of great footie-related bits in this piece from the New York Times magazine Play, the tongue in the kiss being that he's flying to England soon to discuss business opportunities. “I’d like to be an owner,” he says. “It’s something I could do for the rest of my life after my little window of popularity dies.”
You should do it Steve. Or better yet don’t do it and buy 2 MLS franchises…one in your native Vancouver and one in the states (cough, Portland, cough). Why not give a little something back to the country that made you a rich, rich bastard?
