Kate Upton knows how the game is played, but that doesn't make it any easier!
On Friday's Live With Kelly and Michael, the 22-year-old model talked about dropping her allegiance to the New York Yankees now that she's dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander!
"My boyfriend plays for the Tigers," she went on, explaining, "I had to pick a side!"
Last Monday, Kate went to support Justin at the Yankees-Tigers game in Yankee Stadium. The former Yankees fan found things to be quite different in Yankee Stadium, though, than they used to be.
"I felt it, too, when I walked in," she said. "They specifically told me—the Yankees told me —'You're not allowed to wear a Tigers hat! You're not allowed to wear any Tigers gear. '"
"It's like a bad breakup," she added.
Fortunately, at least one Tiger is happy to have Kate on their side. As a cute, romantic gesture, boyfriend Justin tossed her a ball mid-game, causing her to smile and blush. One sportscaster who saw the cute moment declared, "It must be love!"
Well, baseball is one thing, but love most certainly is not a game!
