There are many people who are not fans of Rick Nash. I am one of them. However, that does not mean Rick Nash’s wife Jessica Nash isn’t allowed to dig the guy. If you don’t have to worry about someone high-sticking you every time he gets near you, then being married to him becomes a much easier task. All my friends who are married to habitual high-stickers tell me this.
Game 4 on Sunday had a few nice patented Nash cheapshots, including a quality stick-to-the-face on PK Subban followed by embarrassing commentary by one broadcaster saying that Subban embellished, which would have been true if he hadn’t completely tripped. Let’s focus on the positive aspects of Rick’s game for a second though. He’s a decent goal-scorer. That makes him valuable. He’s currently leading the playoffs in shots taken, though he’s only scored two goals. As the wise old sage Kobe Bryant says: you miss 98% of the shots you take; wait no I mean you miss 98% of the shots you don’t take; wait no that can’t be…nevermind. Mr. Nash actually led the league in goals scored back in 2003-2004. He pulled down $7.8 million this season. It’s good work if you can get it.
Jessica is notable for her work with nonprofits like Pelotonia, which is an organization that raises money for cancer research by riding bikes. She is originally from Dublin, Ohio, and attended Ohio State, graduating in three years. She’s currently working for a private aviation company called Wheels Up. Yes, she discovered it’s quicker to get from point A to point B by using privately chartered jet aircraft instead of bicycles. So if you’re rich and don’t want to sit with the regular schmoes, or if you want to upgrade from bikes to jets like Jessica, give her a call and she’ll book you a flight. You do have to ask for a Nashless flight though or they’ll automatically seat you with Rick Nash. It’s just one of those pesky defaults that’ll be ironed out after a few more customer questionnaires.
