Steve Nash PROUD CANUCK
The Suns' point guard, who grew up in Victoria, B.C., took part in the flame-lighting ceremony at the Vancouver Olympics, then went back to lighting up the NBA
How nervous were you at the Olympics during the opening ceremonies?
Steve Nash: It was the greatest experience of my career, to represent my country in that moment on home soil. To feel the pride of all the Canadians, having been in [Vancouver] for a day and a half, it was the greatest moment I've ever experienced. So I had a lot of nerves, a lot of pride, a lot of excitement, a lot of connectivity to my fellow countrymen and women. It was spectacular.
But the goal is to not to get burned by the torch, right?
SN: We had fireproof long johns on.
Your outfit was flame retardant?
SN: Underneath, the sexy stuff. That was flame retardant.
Yeah, but your hair was out there in the open.
