WNBA In-Game Smooch earns players Double Personal Fouls
So apparently dudes groping each others’ butts in a congratulatory fashion is okay in the world of sports, but according to this WNBA official, a cocky peck on the cheek between old friends is a faux-pas.
The incident occurred on Thursday night’s WNBA Conference Finals game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Phoenix Mercury. While defending each other, Diana Taurasi (Phoenix) decides to smooch her old pal Seimone Augustus (Minnesota) on the cheek. This earns both players a foul. Maybe this ref should lighten up and realize that people (unfortunately?) only give a shit about the WNBA when the players kiss each other or get in fights.
