Kate Upton might deny relationship, but Taco Bell still loves Justin Verlander (pic)


As he begins the process of whipping himself up into shape during spring training, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander may be feeling a bit low about Kate Upton’s recent denial that he’s her man. But he should take solace in the fact that his love affair with Taco Bell is still going strong.

It all began back in April of 2012 when Verlander tweeted out a photo of his standard dinner the night before a start: Three Crunchy Taco Supremes, no tomato; a Cheesy Gordita Crunch; and a Mexican Pizza, no tomato. Because of his profession of undying devotion to Taco Bell and his consistent willingness to make a run to the border, a restaurant romance ensued.

Verlander celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday, Feb. 20, and in honor of the milestone event, Taco Bell’s official Twitter account issued a tweet to Verlander professing the fast food chain’s enduring love with their favorite major league ballplayer.

Aww, how romantic. Few things are more satisfying than the feel of requited love. Who else thinks he bond between Justin Verlander and Taco Bell will always endure. Although as far as the Justin Verlander’s coupling with Taco Bell is concerned, he may suffer a high cholesterol count further down the road. The things we do for love, right?
