As the annual swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated with a nearly “bare” actress and super model Kate Upton on the cover hits mailboxes and newsstands this morning, men across the land will be giving and getting it up for Kate Upton.

The Twenty-year old’s appearance on SI’s cover marks the first back-to-back swimsuit cover appearance by anyone since Tyra Banks adorned the sport magazine’s cover in 1996-97.

What makes Upton’s appearance on SI’s cover notable for Homeruns and Cherry Pie is her worst-kept-secret relationship with Justin Verlander, the Detroit Tiger ace and 2006 Rookie of the Year who turns 30 next week.

According to the New York Post, Verlander and Upton “were spotted together at the Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas in the Caribbean, where they reportedly enjoyed the pool and the grounds of the luxury resort.”

If the rumors are true Tiger management can only hope Verlander’s on-field performance this season comes close to matching his off-field prowess.
