PHOTO: A's fans troll Justin Verlander with Kate Upton heads
In an attempt to get under the skin of Tigers ace Justin Verlander for Game 5 in Oakland Thursday, the A's fans have gotten creative.
The Tigers and Athletics are set to square off in Oakland for Game 5 of the ALDS Thursday night. And with Tigers ace set to take the hill, the Oakland fans are trying to get under his skin with a rather humorous -- and attractive -- idea. Check it out (click on the picture for full-size version):
For those unaware, back during the 2012 season, there were rampant rumors that Verlander was dating SI Swimsuit edition covergirl Kate Upton. The two never denied they were together, although they never really publicly admitted it.
Later, though, the rumors turned to them having broken up, with Upton in mid-February specifically saying, "I'm single right now."
So the A's fans are looking to do a little trolling of Mr. Verlander by sporting pictures of his (probably? likely?) ex-girlfriend. Nice touch. College football and basketball fans are surely proud.
