Whatever (or whomever) Justin Verlander has been doing or not doing to get to this point…don’t change a thing! The world seems to disappear for him when he is on the mound, and his laser like focus is a thing of beauty. Off the field his thing of beauty is rumored to be supermodel Kate Upton. There was a time when the rumors of their relationship were also giving credit to Upton for knocking Verlander off his game. Not true in the slightest!
The one good thing about their relationship is that there may be more sightings of her around town. According to yesterday’s USA TODAY it sounds like you can expect that wish to come true. When asked about the bodacious blonde, Verlander finally said, “I’m not confirming or denying anything. I’ll leave that to my grandfather. God Bless him.”
Poor Pa-pa! The Verlander family had to give 87-year-old Richard Verlander Sr. a crash course in media training after he confirmed to Celebuzz that his grandson was dating the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. “I never thought I’d have to prepare my grandfather for the media,” Verlander told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s a whole different world. I can’t believe that people would call my grandparents. It’s tough when people start trying to dig into your personal life.”
When you’ve got it like that, most guys would WANT to brag about their lady, but kudos to JV for keeping it about baseball even when he’s got this to look forward to…
