Kate Upton: The New Jessica Simpson?

by at . Comments

Modeling It Girl Kate Upton is apparently reminding some sports fans of another famous blonde, Jessica Simpson. Why? Look at their impact on players!

The Sports Illustrated beauty is rumored to be dating Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander, arguably the best pitcher in all of Major League Baseball ...

... who promptly got shellacked in Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Rumors immediately began flying that Upton was to blame for his effort - just as Dallas Cowboys fans once blamed another blonde for Tony Romo's woes.

Simpson was notably on hand (in a pink Romo jersey) for some of his worst games in a Dallas uniform, leading fans to label her a curse, jinx, and worse.

"Kate Upton and Justin Verlander? Suddenly everything makes sense," read a headline in the Los Angeles Times, calling her "the only logical explanation."

An Examiner headline hilariously read after the pitcher got rocked, "Kate Upton's bikini body blamed for Justin Verlander's poor All-Star Game inning."

If he was envisioning her Cat Daddy video or even just Kate Upton bikini photos, it would be easy to see why. But it gets better than this one incident:

Before Verlander, Upton was previously linked to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, a long-touted prospect who has since become mediocre.

Think about it ... how could anyone focus. Fortunately for Jess' fiance, former NFL player Eric Johnson, his career was already over when they got together.

The real question: Who'd you rather ...
