How to upload contacts to an Android phone?

How can I copy my phone book from my old Blackberry to my new Galaxy Nexus without uploading the data to Google, Facebook, or any other service? I have a Mac and a USB cable; this ought to be possible, right?
My employer just gave us all shiny new smartphones, and I'd like to use mine to replace my aging Blackberry (which honestly works just fine except for the sticky trackball, which is infuriating).
I have managed to extract the Blackberry's contact list into my Mac's Address Book database. Now I want to upload the list to the Samsung phone so I can actually use it, but I can't figure out how to do this. The official instructions are all about syncing to a Google account - they seem to assume that everyone using an Android phone either has or wants to have all their contacts in Google's system. This can't be the only way! Is there some uploader app I can run on my Mac? Can I email myself a file in some format and import it on the phone?
