Important News: Kate Upton watched Justin Verlander pitch against ChiSox (video)


Kate Upton celebrated her 22nd birthday this week, something that caused a bevy of retrospectives, odes and bouts of extended online ogling. Upton’s birthday celebration week continued in a less exotic locale than she has been accustomed to: The Windy City, where she watched boyfriend Justin Verlander and his Tigers teammates take on the White Sox in a chilly Chicago.

Well, as much as she could see through the ginormous and ridiculous hat the fan in front of her was wearing. Seriously, what’s up with that thing?

Wrapped up in a jacket and sporting a Tigers cap, a frigid-looking Upton probably would have preferred to be on a beach somewhere for a bikini modeling shoot instead of freezing her buns off in Chicago. And to be honest, most folks reading this probably would have preferred that scenario playing out — with accompanying video, of course — instead of the below video.

Verlander may have preferred sunning himself on some sun-splashed beach as well, as the Tigers ace had a rocky outing. Verlander did not last six innings, surrendering seven earned runs on eight hits while walking four in Detroit’s 8-2 loss. Definitely not a great outing.

But hey, at least he had Miss Upton in town to help cheer him up after the rough start. If only we all could be so lucky.
