Liquid Nutrition TSX Venture Exchange: LQD.V and LQD.WT

TORONTO - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Amongst heavy speculation, and some uncertainty, Steve Nash is pleased to announce his new team to the world.

Recorded video coverage of the announcement can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xRr6FT6DaA

“I’ve battled with this decision for months, but in the end the decision was quite easy,” said Nash from an undisclosed location. “I would have preferred more athletic, more competitive and more talented athletes to play with, but I guess I will just carry the team on my shoulders as we ascend to greatness.”

In no particular order, Steve Nash’s Team Liquid:

  • Torah Bright, snowboarder, three-time Olympic gold medalist
  • Matt Ryan, NFL, quarterback, Atlanta Falcons
  • Russell Martin, MLB, back catcher, New York Yankees
  • Suzann Pettersen, LPGA, 14 professional victories
  • Vincent Lecavalier, NHL, Tampa Bay Lightning

When reached for comment, Nash’s new teammates were still trying to cope with the news.

“I see it as more of a support group for Steve, not so much of a team,” said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. “Nash didn’t even send my agent a copy of the contract. Is that legal?”

Tampa Bay Lightning Captain Vincent Lecavalier expressed disappointment in Nash’s decision to select him.

“Of all the people in the NHL, how did he pick me? Why does he even need a hockey player on his team?” Said a stunned Lecavalier. “I don’t even think he can spell my last name correctly. What a joke!”

LPGA golfer Suzann Pettersen made her feelings quite clear, “I will not be reporting to training camp. Next question.”

Russell Martin of the New York Yankees questioned Steve’s ability to lead the team, “as a fellow Canadian, I like Nash, I’m loyal to Nash, but he’s a little out there, not much between the ears.”

Torah Bright could not be reached for comment but her agent advised it is his policy not to accept calls from Nash on Torah’s behalf.
