Steve Nash: A Birthday Ode, and Brief Trip Through the Santa Clara Years

 You were once a frosh with studly yearbook hair,

You ate at the Hungry Hound, while your chest was still bare,

You wore a clean white T to conceal the gun show,

You rooted for your squad and set a record for free throws.

 Then you cut off your sleeves as your confidence grew,

You were drafted to the Suns, stupidly traded to the Mavericks, then returned as a free agent and your hair was longer, the blonde was gone (thank God), won two MVP's, led the Suns to 5 playoff appearances, bled for us multiple times, and still give us reason to believe, (even this season-sorry I'm no poet) and..........

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
