Kate Upton gets marriage proposal from mascot, not Justin Verlander

Kate Upton, the model best known for gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, received a marriage proposal Friday night, but it wasn't from boyfriend Justin Verlander, the hard-throwing pitcher from the Detroit Tigers.

While watching the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Orlando Magic at Amway Arena, Stuff the mascot for the Magic spotted Upton sitting alone and swooped in.

The rest of the story can be followed on Twitter.
