So original.

The duo was seen at NYC hotspot Beauty & Essex this week. Sources say the NBA star showed up to meet a group of friends around 10:30 p.m.

Kate Upton, 20, showed up an hour later to join the group:

“The entire party looked like they were all having a great time in each other’s company – specifically Upton and Griffin who were very cozy with each other."

Upton and Blake Griffin "were cuddling and holding hands," and although they were not seen making out," they seemed pretty cute together."

Doesn't it figure. On the bright side ... it may not be in person, but thanks to this recent video, we can appreciate the joy of Kate Upton topless.

Frank Viola III, son of the famed left-handed pitcher with a similar name, is one of Justin Verlander's best friends. Kate used to date Justin, the Tigers' ace.

Apparently, Kate's friendship with Frank survived while her romance with Justin did not. Her e-card to Viola, included in her Tweet, was a good one, saying:

"Happy birthday to a friend of a friend who I now like more than the original friend."

Cristina Torre, the 44-year-old daughter of former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre, made an all-time catch yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn.

She was walking along the street when she saw a 1-year-old boy about to fall from the awning of a building. When he did, she caught him in mid-air!

“The woman caught the baby,” said witness Kristen Bramsen, 48. “The baby was shaken. Everyone was going up to the woman and hugging her."

But the daughter of the legendary baseball skipper didn’t gloat one bit.

“She just smiled and said she was in shock,” Bramsen recalled.

As the saying goes ... never take your eye off the baby.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was sued earlier this month for allegedly shooting a guy in the face after an altercation at a strip clip.

Even more astonishingly, this appears to be unrelated from a homicide investigation that led police to search his home in Massachusetts this week.

Tennis great Serena Williams is in hot water over incendiary comments she made in Rolling Stone about the victim in the Steubenville, Oh., rape saga.

Williams came under fire this week after saying that "[the Steubenville rape victim] shouldn’t have put herself in that position" at a high school party.

Now Serena is issuing an apology, though she also appears to be deflecting responsibility and implying that she may not have ever made that remark.

"I am currently reaching out to the girl’s family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article," Williams says.

"What was written - what I supposedly said - is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame."

So ... what she supposedly said was hurtful. What did she say?

The NBA Finals will be decided in a winner-take-all Game 7 Thursday after Ray Allen rescued the Miami Heat from the precipice of defeat last night.

Allen drained a late three-pointer to tie the game in regulation after LeBron James powered Miami to a frantic fourth-quarter rally and overtime escape.

The Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 103-100 to extend the NBA Finals as far as they can go and keep Miami's hopes for a second straight title alive.

Losing his headband but keeping his cool in playing the entire second half and overtime, James tallied 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

He made the go-ahead basket with 1:43 remaining in OT, and later called it "by far" the best game he's ever been a part of. Can he top it tomorrow?

Neither team has won successive games in the Finals, with the Spurs taking Games 1, 3, and 5, and the Heat answering in Games 2, 4, 6.

Who will win Game 7? Who do you want to take the crown?

Gleason, a one-time pro safety who suffers from ALS at the age of 36, was the subject of a routine many listeners and NFL players deemed offensive.

A swift Internet backlash led to angry calls flooding the radio station, and the trio was initially suspended indefinitely. Mere hours later, they were terminated.

Rick Mack, 790 The Zone Senior V.P. and G.M., said in a statement:
