Justin Verlander, Kid Rock And Wayne Gretzky Hang Out [PHOTO]

If those walls could talk ...

This morning, Tigers ace Justin Verlander posted a photo of himself hanging out with Detroit's very own Kid Rock and "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky.

It's almost mind blowing: Three of the biggest names in baseball, hockey and entertainment together in what appears to be a small room.

How was it big enough to contain the egos?

I have no idea how the three of them got together -- who made the first call? -- but I would have to think once they sat down these guys have some great stories to tell.

I also wonder where they were, and can only presume they were somewhere in metro Detroit. Clarkston's Union Woodshop is a favorite haunt of Rock's, but it looks to me like they might actually be hanging out at Kid Rock's house.

Verlander is sitting in an American Bad Ass chair and I don't think there are too many restaurants that have that type of decorative chair.

However they got together, Detroit Tigers' ace Justin Verlander seems to be having the time of his life this offseason.

In October, Verlander and his girlfriend Kate Upton hung out with Adam Sandler, Andy Dick, David Spade and Leslie Mann. They're spotted out and about all the time in New York, where they apparently wear matching outfits on purpose, and Los Angeles, where Upton hits the streets in workout gear.

In Verlander's latest celebrity outing, I have to wonder if he or Rock brought up Paulina Gretzky's famously racy Instagram photos?
