Beware of the Wrath

As you may already know, Detroit Tiger's pitcher Justin Verlander is the cover boy for this year's 2K Sport's MLB 2K12 video game. In the latest promo for the game, JV teams up with a few of his MLB friends to learn how to correctly throw a circle change in this year's game. JV, David Price (Tampa Bay Rays), C.J. Wilson (Los Angles Angels) and Jay Bruce (Cincinnati Reds) turn to none other than SI Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton to give them a quick tutorial on the circle change.

I just hope the player's informed their wives or girlfriends about the plot of this commercial ahead of time, so that they didn't incur any wrath from their significant other after the commercial aired.

Verlander vs. Verlander

If you didn't know already Detroit Tiger's pitcher, Justin Verlander has had a busy offseason. First he picked up two postseason honors, the 2011 American League Cy Young Award and the 2011 American League Most Valuable Player. He then followed that up with a guest appearance on Conan, where he let the world know all about his pre-game ritual before every start. Here's a hint,
"Three crunchy taco supremes, no tomato. Cheesy gordita crunch. And a Mexican pizza, no tomato."
In addition to that, Verlander also announce that he was named the cover boy for 2K Sport's MLB 2K12 video game. Since then the official game trailer has been released to the delight of fans. This was then followed up by the first TV commercial promoting the release of the game, starring none other than himself, Justin Verlander. If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself.

The Return of Jackie Moon

If you missed it this week, Jackie Moon himself, returned to the court on Wednesday in New Orleans to do what he does best. Yes, that's right, Will Ferrell himself, showed up at Wednesday night's New Orleans Hornets-Chicago Bulls game to provide some comical relief to the fans of News Orleans. What did he do, you ask, well take a look for yourself.
