I'm sports-illiterate, so forgive me if I mess this up: WNBA players Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus have known each other for a long time. They have an affectionate rivalry, since they play on opposing teams. In the below clip, you can see Augustus and Taurasi preparing to, uh, I don't know, block each other? Is that what basketball players do? When they get close, after a few pushes, Taurasi gives Augustus a kiss on the cheek. As men often do when women kiss in public places, the referee immediately injects himself into the equation. He calls them for fouls—double technicals, they're apparently called.
USA Today's Mike Foss notes that sports players touch each other all the time—on the ass, on the shoulders, on the hands, on the heads—and so the foul seems unnecessary to him, and to me. But what do I know? Sports!
