Kate Upton flirts with Justin Verlander over opening day tickets

We knew Kate Upton and Justin Verlander had gotten back together about two months ago when they suddenly began flirting on Twitter. Since then, the swimsuit model and Detroit Tigers pitcher have basically turned into a high school couple.

Upton and Verlander flirt like 16-year-olds who are fully immersed in the puppy love phase. On Sunday, Verlander offered to give free opening day tickets to a Twitter follower who shares the best baseball story.

Upton had a classic girlfriend reaction.

Hey, if Kate Upton was hanging around spring training just for me I’d probably be all about it. She seems to have come a long way from the ice-cold response she gave about a year ago when asked about her love life. These kids might make it.

Dayton coach’s wife Morgan Miller had tremendous reaction to upset (GIF)

Did anything capture the emotion of Dayton’s thrilling upset win over Syracuse better than the reaction of Morgan Miller, the wife of Flyers head coach Archie Miller? I think not.

Shortly after Dayton barely escaped the 3-seeded Orange with a 55-53 win Saturday to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, TBS showed a shot of Morgan Miller’s reaction to her husband’s team pulling off the upset win. It was priceless.

We may have a new challenger to former FGCU coach Andy Enfield’s wife when it comes to popular coach’s wives of the tournament.

Gotta love the T-shirt too!

Lindsey Duke and Kelly Hall met on cruise, are now friends


Something incredible developed over the weekend that could very well break the internet. Blake Bortles’ girlfriend Lindsey Duke and Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall, who happen to be two of the most breathtaking WAGs in sports, ended up on a Caribbean cruise together. They are now friends.

You know the bikini picture we showed you of Duke with her friends in Cozumel over the weekend? Hall posted a bunch of photos of her own trip on Instagram. It appears she went with her family and happened to run into Duke while vacationing.

“Got to meet a new friend on the cruise,” Hall wrote along with the photo you see above. “Wishing her and her man all the luck in the upcoming draft!

I’m pretty much speechless. You all know how we feel about Hall and her “drunk modeling” in Costa Rica. We feel just as tingly about Duke. Worlds are colliding and we couldn’t be happier about it. Here are some more vacation pictures for your enjoyment.

Nick Foles and girlfriend Tori Moore are engaged


Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is engaged. He recently proposed to his longtime girlfriend Tori Moore, who played volleyball at Arizona from 2008 to 2011. Foles and Moore met when he was a quarterback at Arizona.

Moore posted a photo on Instagram after Foles proposed, which was passed along by Barstool Sports.


It goes without saying that Foles is on an incredible hot streak after having cemented himself as the Eagles’ starter of the future with an excellent season in 2013. Things appear to be going as well in his personal life as they are on the gridiron.

Foles has two more years remaining on his rookie contract, but the Eagles will likely look to extend him before it expires. At that point, he and Ms. Moore will be very, very wealthy.

Casey Janssen proposed to girlfriend Lauren Spear after skydiving


Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb received a ton of publicity earlier this month when he proposed to his girlfriend with the help of a dolphin. As it turns out, he was not the only MLB pitcher who executed a flawless proposal this offseason. Last month, Toronto Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen proposed to his girlfriend Lauren Spear while jumping out of a plane.

According to the National Post, Janssen and Spear went skydiving and Janssen put a huge sign near their landing spot that read “Lauren, will you marry me?” Lauren and Casey met in Toronto during the 2012 season, and Janssen said she once told him she wanted to go skydiving.

“I thought, ‘That’s a little crazy,’ but I tucked it away in the back of my mind,” he recalled.

Janssen jumped out of the plane just before Spear, which he said gave him enough time to be waiting on the ground with a ring in hand.

“It was as smooth as it could be,” he said. “Lauren was a minute and a half after me. She landed pretty much right in front of me, and I was on my knee proposing.”

He also surprised Spear by having her family there to witness the special moment.

So there you have it, gents. The standard is set. Start booking your skydiving trips now.
