WAG

Kate Upton has enjoyed Justin Verlander’s playoff ride

Kate Upton Astros

Justin Verlander has had a magical ride since joining the Houston Astros, and his soon-to-be wife Kate Upton has been there for every step.

Upton, who has been engaged to Verlander for over a year and a half, was in attendance in Seattle for her fiance’s first start with his new team after he was traded to Houston just before the Aug. 31 deadline. She also accompanied him from Detroit to Houston and has attended the Astros’ playoff games.

At first she wore a custom jacket:

Kevin Anderson wife Kelsey is also his accountant

Kelsey Anderson Kevin wife

Wives and girlfriends often play big roles in the lives of their professional athlete significant others, but few play as big of a role as Kelsey Anderson.

Kelsey met Kevin when they were both at the University of Illinois. Kelsey played golf in college, while Kevin played tennis for the Illini. The two got married in 2011, and Kelsey, who is a CPA, now serves as Kevin’s accountant on tour. That’s a big help as she manages his finances and books all their travel, which is a big deal considering how much pro tennis players are on the move.

Kelsey is therefore on tour with husband Kevin as he travels around the world, which keeps her extremely busy. That also means she is in his corner supporting him during his matches just like she has been at the US Open, where he reached the semifinals — a career-best mark at a major.

Oh, and Kelsey also keeps her golf game strong.

Thousands of soccer fans plan march to demand Alexis Sanchez break up with girlfriend

Alexis Sanchez

Thousands of Chilean soccer fans are planning a march to protest the relationship involving Alexis Sanchez and his current girlfriend.

Sanchez plays for Arsenal in the Premier League as well as the Chilean national team. The forward has been involved in multiple trade rumors lately and has been frustrating Arsenal fans. Even manager Arsene Wenger made it seem like the team would prefer to be without Sanchez.

Well Chilean fans are dissatisfied with Sanchez too, and they feel the forward’s relationship with girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez is partly to blame for his poor form.

A Facebook group called “La Marea Roja Valpara√≠so” started an event scheduled for Oct. 5 in which they plan to march in protest of Sanchez’s relationship. The event is titled “MARCHA PARA QUE ALEXIS TERMINE CON MAYTE Y VUELVA A SU NIVEL” and says they hope that a breakup would allow Sanchez to return to his previous level of play in time for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

As of Thursday evening, over 56,000 people were marked on Facebook as “Going” to the event, with another 71,000 “Interested.” That’s a lot of people.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a fan base upset with a girlfriend and blamed them for a player’s struggles (this recent one comes to mind), but this might be the most extreme measures we’ve seen fans take in protest.

Justin Thomas, girlfriend Jillian Wisniewski know how to have a good time

Justin Thomas kept himself in the hunt all week at the PGA Championship, and it’s probably safe to assume his better half was on pins and needles as the drama unfolded.

Thomas and his girlfriend, Jillian Wisniewski, are no strangers to a good time. The four-time winner on the PGA Tour has shared a number of posts on social media proudly bragging about Wisniewski’s good looks, and the couple has taken plenty of vacations together since they started dating.

Holidays are better with some arm candy like this

Back in May, Thomas and Wisniewski accompanied some other golfers to Churchill Downs.

Can't beat Derby weekend! What a weekend with this squad

A post shared by Justin Thomas (@justinthomas34) on

Thomas, a self-proclaimed momma’s boy, also revealed recently that Wisniewski shares a birthday with his mother.

Wishing a very happy birthday to both of my ladies! And here's to momma still looking that young ??

A post shared by Justin Thomas (@justinthomas34) on

But you know how we really know Wisniewski must be “the one” for Thomas? She joined Thomas on one of the many bro trips he takes with some of his golf buddies when she and some other ladies went to the Bahamas with Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, among others. If that’s not love, we don’t know what is.

Brooks Koepka girlfriend is Jena Sims, not Becky Edwards

Jena Sims

Brooks Koepka won his first career major when he captured the US Open on Sunday with a combined score of 16 under for the tournament, tying a US Open record.

Koepka was carted away after finishing up on 18 and was joined by his girlfriend Jena Sims, who was there to celebrate with him.

There was a slightly awkward moment for those watching on TV as FOX’s Joe Buck incorrectly identified Koepka’s girlfriend as Becky Edwards, a pro soccer player. Those two actually broke up, and Koepka’s new girlfriend is Sims, who is an actress.

Luckily color commentator Brad Faxon was there to correct things:

The mistake is understandable as Koepka and Edwards appeared to be dating as of December, though they’re obviously no longer together. Likewise, the only clue that Sims has given on social media about the two being in a relationship is this photo she shared on Saturday:

It's par-tee time!

Faxon later said he only knew about Koepka’s new girlfriend thanks to a tip from a friend and Koepka telling him in secret.
