WNBA kiss breaks tension, ref calls technical fouls

A kiss is just a kiss until it ends with double technical fouls being called.

“See what happened here, they’ve been playing against each other since they were 10 and 12 years old.” (Via ESPN)

In a push-comes-to-love type of moment, the chest-bumping turned into a peck. And the ref wasn’t having it. But the fouls didn’t make much of a difference in a game Minnesota won by 20-plus points.

“Can we all agree that this is excessive?,” a USA Today writer asks. “The fouls, not the peck. Male and female opponents have solved their differences in a variety of innocuous ways. There are butt taps, head pats, hugs, fist bumps, and now there’s a friendly cheek peck.”

 Right? Like this smooch Sports Illustrated featured in a “Memorable Kisses in Sports” slideshow — between Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas.

Then there’s this explanation on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that turned into a demo.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: “I don’t understand.”

REPORTER: “It was so intense she had to break the tension. There was tension. So she had a sense of humor. So she gave her a kiss.”

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: “I’ll try that sometime. That’s weird.”

What’s truly weird, a New York Post writer suggests, is Diana Taurasi’s surprised reaction to the call on the court. “The league’s perennial leader in technical fouls is no stranger to being singled out by the officials. Taurasi led the WNBA in techs in five of the past six years.”

The show went on in postgame interviews, where Augustus said, “She just wanted some of my deliciousness.” And Taurasi told reporters, “We were just trying to make sweet love.”

They’re making people pay attention, that’s for sure. Game 2 is Sunday in Phoenix.

Former Dayton Flyers guard Charles Cooke will start the NBA season on the roster of the New Orleans Pelicans, who play at Memphis in their first game Wednesday.

Cooke signed a two-way contract in the summer. That means he can spend up to 45 days with the Pelicans during the regular season. The days he spends with the Pelicans in the first week of the season will not count against that total.

This season, for the first time, NBA teams can have 15 players on their roster plus two two-way players who will spend most of the season in the G League. The Pelicans are one of four teams without a G League affiliate, but they can assign players to other G League teams.

Cooke appeared in four preseason games, averaging 9.8 minutes and 3.0 points.

Former Flyer Chris Johnson did not make the Houston Rockets roster.  He was waived Friday.

Ezekiel Elliott’s 6-game suspension overturned again

Published: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 @ 8:17 PM

The latest ruling on former Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott is that he will be able to play this weekend. The Dallas Cowboys running back was suspended six games by the NFL for a domestic violence incident.

This is the latest flip of a suspension that was initially issued in August. An appeals court reinstated the suspension on Thursday, reversing a previous decision to overturn the suspension.
