Who doesn't love watching two dozen tall, lanky women panting, sweating, and bumping up against each other? If you do (and we definitely do), then watch the Phoenix Mercury get down and dirty with the Connecticut Sun. In this season's WNBA preseason opener, Connecticut whipped the Mercury's ass, so our bad girls of b-ball have something to prove -- no easy task considering the team's rough start and rocky record against their East Coast rivals. Let's hope all-star guard and former Connecticut homegirl Diana Taurasi helps the Mercury climb one more time before she ditches the desert for a cool reception at the Beijing Olympics.
