WNBA Ref Issues Foul For Kissing Players

A WNBA ref is under fire today for calling foul on a friendly cheek peck shared by two female friends on the court Thursday night. 

USA Today explains:

Well, this is new.

Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus were defending each other during Thursday night’s WNBA conference finals game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Phoenix Mercury. As the commentators note, Taurasi and Augustus have known each other for a very long time and there is genuine affection to complement the competition.

Apparently, that affection crossed the line for the referee Thursday night. Both players were called for fouls after squaring up and then pecking each other on the cheek.

Interesting I can see both sides here.
