Kate Upton and Amy Crawford teamed up to recreate a great magazine cover photo of their husbands.
Upton, the wife of Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander, posted a photo on her Instagram account Thursday ahead of the deciding Game 5 of the ALDS that showed her posing next to Crawford, who is Gerrit Cole’s wife. The two are in the same poses their husbands struck for an SI cover in September.
Take a look (you can scroll to the second photo to see the SI cover).

The photo appeared to have been taken at Tropicana Park, likely when the Astros were in St. Petersburg for their series with the Tampa Bay Rays. Cole is the Astros’ Game 5 starter.
Interestingly, Crawford is the sister of San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon. Amy and Cole met when they were both at UCLA.
Klay Thompson took in Sunday’s Cubs-Milwaukee Brewers game at Wrigley Field in Chicago along with girlfriend Laura Harrier, and the two seemed to enjoy themselves.
The two were sitting in the front row for the game and were shown by CSN Chicago grooving to some music:

Thompson is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL suffered during the NBA Finals in June. He underwent the surgery in early July and says he does not want to push his return. The 29-year-old is a part of the cast of “Space Jam 2”, which has been shooting this summer. Thompson working as an actor would allow him to relate to Harrier in that regard. Harrier, 29, is known for her role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
There was talk the two had taken a break in their relationship, but they are definitely together and recently enjoyed a trip to France.
Back in January, Thompson credited Harrier for inspiring his monster 44-point game.
Sean McVay is having a heck of an offseason.
The Los Angeles Rams head coach proposed to girlfriend Veronika Khomyn, who said yes, based on her Instagram.
Khomyn posted a photo on her Instagram Story Saturday night that showed her flashing a ring on her finger and the words “Can’t wait to call him my husband.”

Khomyn posted on Friday to say she was on vacation in Cannes, France. A day later she shared the engagement news, so it appears he may have proposed during their trip.
Khomyn and McVay have been dating since his time as an offensive assistant with the Washington Redskins. She moved to Los Angeles with him when he was hired by the Rams to become their head coach in January 2017 and has been along for his rise to success, serving as a great fan.
McVay was 31 at the time he was hired by the Rams and turned around a team that was 4-12 and made them 11-5. Then they went 12-4 last season and reached in the Super Bowl, where they lost to the New England Patriots.
Though McVay did not get a Super Bowl ring as he desired, putting on a wedding ring soon should be a nice consolation.
JJ Watt is officially engaged.

The Instagram post contains more photos:
Watt, 30, and Ohai have been dating since at least 2016, which is when she publicly confirmed they were a couple. Ohai, 27, plays soccer for the NWSL’s Houston Dash and is a member of the US Women’s National Team. Watt is a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
The two combine to form an athletic power couple in Houston.
Brooks Koepka’s girlfriend Jena Sims got a big makeup kiss that she do deserved after getting snubbed earlier in the day.
Koepka shot a four-over 74 on Sunday, which was enough to win his second consecutive PGA Championship thanks to the huge lead he built up with a record first two rounds.
Prior to his tee time on Sunday, Koepka denied Sims on a kiss attempt:

Maybe Koepka was all business at the time, because once he completed the major win, he was ready for the smooches.

The 29-year-old golfer is in the middle of building his legacy. He won consecutive US Opens in 2017 and 2018 and has now won two PGA Championships in a row. He’ll have a chance to make it three US Opens in a row next month.
Giancarlo Stanton has a girlfriend and made a public appearance with her during the week.
Stanton was rumored since last summer to be dating model Chase Carter, and now things are confirmed as official. The two showed up at TAO Downtown in New York Tuesday night for a DuJour Media event — Stanton is on the cover for April.
“My ultimate career goal is to win a championship. I’ve accomplished a lot personally and I have plenty of time to accomplish more in my personal life, I’m still young. But in my professional life I definitely want to bring my team to a championship and experience that with them. To help my team accomplish that is the ultimate goal for me,” he said in DuJour.
Stanton is in his second season with the Yankees following an offseason trade last year by the Marlins. He followed up his 2017 MVP campaign by batting .266 with an .852 OPS last season. The Yankees are hoping for bigger things from him this season.
