It's Super Bowl Sunday, the final football game of the 2018-19 NFL season.
With Spring Training just 10 days away, my Baseball Picture of the Day is the perfect transition from the pigskin to the horsehide, courtesy of Houston Astros fireballer Justin Verlander.

Why, you're wondering. is he rooting for Tom Brady to win his 9th Super Bowl?
Well, my guess is his wife, the beautiful Kate Upton, a Michigan native and fan of the football team that calls Ann Arbor home, has a lot to do with it.
Also. Verlander did pitch in Detroit for 12 years, a city only about 45 miles east of Ann Arbor, so he may have some connections there.
Whatever the reason, it's a great picture, and it's awesome that Verlander is rooting for my favorite All-Time QB and cheering on the Patriots with his wife.
Have a great Sunday night, enjoy the game, and, always... PLAY BALL! 🏈⚾️
