Justin Verlander, Kate Upton team up to complete ice bucket challenge

By now, hundreds of professional athletes have participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, as have five or six people in your Facebook timeline at any given moment.

So one more boyfriend-girlfriend duo dousing each other with ice water isn't exactly news. Unless the boyfriend is Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and the girlfriend is supermodel Kate Upton.

Add those two and it becomes the most must-see ice-bucketing since our boy Jeff Passan.

Two things of note here:

1. Verlander is sidelined with a sore shoulder these days, so does an ice-water bath count as getting treatment? If so, well played on the two-birds-one-stone level, Mr. Verlander.

2. Look how happy he looks to be drenching his lovely girlfriend. That's true love, y'all.
