Phoenix, Arizona Mayor Greg Stanton created a humorous video, last week, asking to join the Phoenix Mercury WNBA team.

In the video, he said "Coach, I'm taking this really seriously. I know if I'm going to be guarding Nakia Sanford... I've got to buff up."

Mayor Stanton was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where doctors said his nose is fractured in three places.

Mayor Stanton told AZCentral: "As I now know, they're tough. My biggest mistake was thinking I could actually get a rebound... injuries are just part of the game, they’re battle wounds."

Phoenix Mercury coach Corey Gaines told TMZ.com: "It was hilarious. You can't script it any better."
