Justin Verlander posts 'Throwback Thursday' to the time he met Kate Upton

Justin Verlander posts TBT to time he met Kate Upton

Most "Throwback Thursdays" (or TBT, for those in the know -- a day when you post old photos on your social media networks) are pretty embarrassing. When I look through old photo albums of myself, all I see are images of a braces-wearing 7th grader rocking a Limp Bizkit tee-shirt and a backwards Korn hat while hanging with his grandparents. That's not quite James Dean-level cool. 

Naturally, Justin Verlander bucks the trend. On Thursday, Verlander posted his TBT to the time that he met his girlfriend, Kate Upton. I'm sorry, that should say supermodel and actress Kate Upton. 

#tbt the day I met the most amazing person ever!..... @davidprice14 haha jk @kateupton #getoutofmywayjay

Of course, while most of us met our significant others on awkward blind dates or at parties where we spent half the time pretending to be able to hear them over thumping house music, Verlander met his belle while hanging out with fellow All-Stars David Price and Jay Bruce.

Because he is Justin Verlander and his life is great.
