A strange incident from a WNBA game between Phoenix Mercury and Minnesota Lynx in which Mercury player Diana Taurasi gave her opponent Seimone Augustus a quick peck on the cheek after the pair squared up to each other.


Each smiled and it was a nice moment for the pair who have known each other since their school days. However the referee was not impressed with the kiss, assessing personal fouls to both.

Their post-game reactions were great too. From Yahoo! Sports:

When questioned about the incident, Taurasi sarcastically said, "We were just trying to make sweet love." Augustus fired back, "The tango dance that we had, I always say she just wanted some of my deliciousness."
