Man, Justin Verlander just can’t catch a break.
The Detroit Tigers ace decided to attend Friday night’s Orlando Magic game (good choice considering they upset the Oklahoma City Thunder) with girlfriend Kate Upton.
But when Verlander left his seat momentarily, Stuff the Magic Dragon, the Orlando Magic’s mascot decided to take matters into his own hands.
The furry creature rushed towards Upton’s court side seat, got down on a knee and proposed to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. She of course couldn’t resist his loveable ways and accepted.
The busty blonde even posted a picture of herself with her enormous ring after the game:

Upton, a Florida native, is a huge basketball fan as she’s often seen at NBA events and has even done commercials with players like Kevin Durant.
Great night for Stuff too. Not only did he get the beautiful Upton inked to a marriage, but his Magic pulled off one of the best upsets of the season thanks to a last second dunk before time expired. Hope he bought a lottery ticket on his way home.
Also? For no good reason, here’s Kate Upton doing the cat daddy. Thank me later.
