    Default Nash, soccer star Henry among players in charity soccer match

    Found this on the V's board.
    Nash, soccer star Henry among players in charity soccer match

    Updated: June 24, 2008, 10:32 AM ETNEW YORK -- Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash will be doing some drafting of his own on the eve of the NBA draft, calling in some big names from his two favorite sports for a first of its kind charity game.
    Baron Davis, Jason Kidd and international soccer star Thierry Henry have committed to join Nash and longtime U.S. national team captain Claudio Reyna for a charity soccer match on June 25 at 5:30 p.m. at Nike Field on Chrystie Street in Chinatown. The match is open to the public. Nash spends a good bit of his summers playing soccer in New York and has grown close with Reyna, who moved to Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls after playing in four World Cups and a long career in Europe that included stints in Germany, Scotland and England. Nash and Reyna are co-hosting the event and a subsequent private auction in SoHo to benefit their respective foundations, billing it as "The Showdown In Chinatown."
    The rest is here.

    That's the type charity game we need here! Although JDG is hosting one on Sunday, this type of game would DEF. sell out at BMO EASILY!
    Anyways I think Nash should buy out the CSA. Maybe something would get done for one.
    Discuss!

    Nash should be joining up with Canada Basketball at the ACC instead.
