Last night Detroit Tiger’s pitcher Justin Verlander threw a complete game shutout, leading his team into the American League Championship Series. And that’s not even the best news. After much rumor and speculation, the champion baseballer’s family has confirmed that he is also dating bikini goddess Kate Upton! Let’s just pause and reflect on the fact that this guy is living out every 13 year-old’s fantasy. Thank you.
Celebuzz spoke to Justin’s grandfather, who confirmed the rumor as any proud pop-pop would. “I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo, she’s beautiful,” he said, in a voice we imagine sounding like the grandfather from Rugrats. “They make a good looking pair because he’s a good looking man too.” Because he takes after my side of the family, we added in his mind. “I do know he’s on the dating scene. Justin is a fine boy and whoever he ends up with is lucky. He’s not only a great baseball player, he’s a great guy.” Gawwww, grandpa.
