This is as close as Canada Basketball's Leo Rautins will get to seeing Steve Nash this summer -- but we'll be seeing Leo's lads in Beijing. (You gotta believe!)
This is Canadian insecurity writ large. Canada's Brendan Fraser can't do a promo with his sports star for his new movie -- unless it's a fellow Canadian. Like, get real, eh.
(Yes, Fraser was born in Indianapolis to Canadian parents and Nash was born in South Africa. Shut up, already.)
Incidentally, where does Nash rank among Canadian athletes in acting ability? He's no Mark Messier, but he's more at ease than Wayne Gretzky.
