There's no more loved and respected athlete around than two time NBA "most valuable player, Steve Nash. Steve is point guard for the Phoenix Suns. The Boston Globe and Rob Galbraith caught this picture of him in last night's opening ceremonies.
Steve left right after the ceremonies for Dallas, where he is starting point guard for the NBA's all-star game.
The reason I bring this up is that Jo Ann and I watched the often boring, but also often stirring ceremonies until late in the night. K.D. Lang's singing of "Hallelujah" by our favorite, Leonard Cohen, was stunning. Shortly after that, when Steve appeared to actually light the big torch, both of us bounced from our chairs, choking back tears and loudly applauded our hero. Scared the daylights out of our dogs.
