Justin & Kate Plus Everyone
It appears that the game may be back on for super-couple Justin Verlander and Kate Upton, who attended the Flyers-Lightning game together this weekend. It’s Always Sunny In Detroit has more on the pair’s appearance, complete with stalker-y cell phone shots (like the one we’ve posted above).

In a soap opera only MLB and Alex Rodriguez could write, Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch appeared on 60 Minutes and revealed, among other things, that he himself shot up A-Rod with a cocktail of PEDs because the slugger is “scared of needles.”
I’ve had my fill of A-Rod for 2014, but I remain interested in one aspect: Though suspended for the season, A-Rod plans to show up for spring training regardless! Plus he might end up with the independent Long Island Ducks, who would like his services. Obligatory: The Post cover.

Odds & Ends
Someone made an ill-advised Charlie Strong shirt … Andrew Luck shaved his Amish beard … E!’s idiotic “fun fact” about Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease gets properly parodied … A dedicated Jordan Brand store is coming to New York City … A recovering Anderson Silva is now addicted to Call of Duty … All of the NBA’s Sunday buzzer-beaters in a single GIF … Jerry Stackhouse has a tiny dog, keeps it in a purse … 19-year-old gets high on “meow meow,” stabs mother, cuts off own penis … ‘Cuse may be getting a new stadium.
