It is not often in sports that a baseball player’s grandparent breaks major news during the MLB Playoffs, but Justin Verlander’s grandpa did this time around. Justin Verlander and Kate Upton appear to be an official couple, unoficially anyways.
Richard Verlander, Justin’s grandfather, told Celebuzz that Justin Verlander and Super Bikini-model Kate Upton are indeed an item.
Richard Verlander said that his grandson Justin Verlander has been out on dates with the Sports Illustrated bikini model. Kate Upton has been spotted wearing a Detroit Tigers baseball cap. If you put two and two together you can take that as confirmation that the rumors which have been swirling since the summer are true. Justin Verlander and Kate Upton are most likely a couple. This is just another celeb-athlete romance bound to create drama and controversy in the media.
Detroit Tigers’ fans just hope Justin Verlander does not get hit with the same curse that Tony Romo got hit with back when he started dating Jessica Simpson. At that time, Tony Romo was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Romo and Simpson broke up back in 2009 after both his career and their relationship started to fall apart. Perhaps a pretty lady creates weakness in mind and body of a professional athlete who may well be at the peak of their career.
The Detroit Tigers are set to square off with the New York Yankees in the 2012 post season in a best of seven series.
