Diana Taurasi is my hero.

Bottoms up!

Bottoms up!

Diana Taurasi is my new favorite athlete. Taurasi, who won a gold in Beijing in 2008 and currently plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, got busted for a DUI. Actually, scratch that – it was an ‘EXTEME’ DUI.  Why do I suddenly have a mental imagine Dan Cortese of MTV Sports yelling ‘EXTREME’ into the camera and being obnoxious while Taurasi is being loaded into the back of a cop car?

Taurasi ‘s blood/alcohol level clocked in at .17, which is just a skoch over Arizona’s  legal limit of .08. Earlier in the night, Taurasi scored 22 points and helped the Mercury beat the Seattle Storm, 98-81. So it’s not like she didn’t have a good excuse to have a couple fun drinks? Taurasi pleaded not guilty to the charges and her next non-basketball related court appearance is on July 22nd.

Thanks to Special Ed from The Sandbox for the heads up….
