BG's response was hilarious! And, maybe BG knows Spanish, but during that exchange with the Spanish journalist, BG was nodding her head in agreement with some of DT's comments! It was a beautiful moment.

Despite DT's Californian upbringing, which might suggest a somewhat Mexican sounding accent, she is true to her ancestry, aspirating final esses like a good Argentina. (O al menos porteña. ;) )

BG's facial expressions were stupendously charming.

Her father's from Argentina. When Geno was recruiting her he found a bottle of wine with the label Taurasi.

During her early years with the Mercury Diana was Brittney's tutor and support system of one. There is an unshakable bond there.

Mario is from Italy.
Actually multiple sources say that Mario was born in Italy but raised in Argentina (and later played professional soccer in Italy.) Many people consider their home to be the country where they were raised, not necessarily the country of their birth (or for that matter, the country of their current residence.) I have no special insight into what country or countries Mario Taurasi feels he is from, but it's a fair bet that the particular flavor of Spanish that Diana grew up speaking around the dinner table was Argentine.

No reason for your opinion on this because I mentioned a fact.
