Spike Albrecht put all his hopes of wooing model Kate Upton in the hands of his runner-up appearance in the Final Four and a cute tweet that said he noticed Michigan's most beautiful fan watching the game from the stands. The naivety of youth. The Michigan freshman better wait until he has an NBA career or gets his hands on a half-billion dollar entertainment empire before he tries to bring his game to Upton. Even Detroit Tigers pitching ace Justin Verlander struck out with the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. One person that does have the fortune (and I mean that two ways) to date the 20-year-old Upton is Sean (Diddy) Combs. The media mogul was spotted getting hot and heavy with Upton last month sucking face with Diddy, 43, at the club LIV in Miami beach, according to Confidenti@l in The New York Daily News. Now, following their hot hookup in South Beach, the duo met up again in New York, sharing an intimate dinner together at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel on Thursday. “They were having dinner together,” a source told the gossip page. Upton, silent on Twitter that day, the next morning tweeted: “Cuddling with my favorite tiger :)” an obvious diss to Verlander, because she linked to a picture of her holding an actual tiger cub in a Bazaar magazine shoot.  Cuddling with my favorite tiger :) twitter.com/KateUpton/stat… — Kate Upton (@KateUpton) April 5, 2013 @kateupton hey saw you at the game last night, thanks for coming out! Hope to see you again
