SheWired's Shot of the Day: Diana Taurasi Naked on ESPN Mag
There is moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being no redeeming value or anything to do with lesbians. As a former Connecticut resident familiar with UConn Women’s Basketball, I can say that this is not the Diana Taurasi I remember – glamorous, nude and on the cover of the ESPN Body Issue!
