One of the hottest rumors in sports surrounds Justin Verlander and Kate Upton. A lot of people have spent a lot of time wondering if the two are involved in a relationship. It is hard to tell if the two actually are because neither party will confirm it. Verlander himself has even dodged the question.
“I’m not confirming or denying anything,
“I’ll leave that to my grandfather. God bless him. 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.”
The first part of that quote deals with the actual relationship with Upton and the second part deals with the media asking his grandpa about a possible relationship. That second part is one of the oddest stories in sports this year. Trust me, that is a title that took some time to earn.
If I were to guess, the two are probably involved in a relationship and they will eventually tell people. There is way too much smoke around this for it not to be true. Of course, it could be the greatest ruse that has ever been pulled.
Put money on this coming out after the season is over. There is no way that Verlander wants more distractions right before the World Series starts. Then again, dating Upton would probably be a pretty big distraction in itself.
