and a lot of double posts related to her. I'm definitely sensitive to needing nice things today, but there have been way too many Kate Upton OP's lately. Looking at the mod sticky, there have probably been more Kate Upton threads deleted in the past month than double posts on any other topic.

This seems like it will get posted again in five seconds if it gets taken down, and I do agree with you here, so this one will stay up. I'll also throw the first guy to post this a couple points since it doesn't seem quite fair.

don't even worry about it. I just think the threshold for what Kate Upton news is posted needs to get raised. In a vacuum, this content is probably fine and meets the newly enforced standard until the tournament starts.

The last one got deleted more for being the last in a pattern, which is why I changed my mind here and will get around to giving him a little points bump in a minute.

Yeah, she's been everywhere lately but the past month has also been the peak of Upton season with her being on the cover of SI.  With basketball & hockey playoffs, spring football practice and baseball season starting soon, you can bet the Upton news will be slowing down.

Also, keep in mind that she probably only has a 3-5 reign as a top swimsuit model so we should probably enjoy the overindulgence while we can.  It might be years before another Wolverine loving cover model is grabbing so much national attention.

when the kid finds flat tires on his car, the neighbors will report having seen someone wearing a white #35 baseball jersey suspiciously running through their yard.

Am I the only one who finds many poster's obsessions with Kate Upton to be, honestly, kind of embarrassing?

"Oh, shit, an article/picture/gif of an attractive woman who once said she was a fan of the school I like! Better tell my internet pals about this, even though we all should have gotten over this after puberty" Or am I giving people too much credit?

Dude is a baller.  He may have hyperventilated a little during that live interview, but I think his approach and confidence is still better than most.  A homerun would have been her saying she will clear the schedule for that guy, he would have passed out of course, but well worth it.

The dude almost passed out when they got her on the phone.  Still, he was able to make a sales pitch.  I especially loved the part where he said he might be able to get his 11:00 curfew extended.  I mean how does that go -  "Um, mom and dad, um, Kate Upton said yes to going to prom with me and, um, she's like a Sports Illustrated model and all.  So, can I, um, like, um, stay out to 11:30 or 12:00?  Please!  I'll wash your car for, like, the whole summer!  And her ex, like, has a ton of money. So can I, like, borrow some cash to take her out for dinner?"

(Yes, Kate Upton posts have been out of control, but this was pretty funny.)
