New York Mets’ pitcher Matt Harvey is having a great year. Already dominating the National League with a 5-0 record, 1.93 ERA and 74 strikeouts, Harvey is almost a lock for the N.L. All-Star team. A good-looking, successful, wealthy young athlete? The only thing that could make Harvey’s life better (other than a trade to a better team) is hooking up with a swimsuit model.
BAM! Us Weekly revealed Friday that Harvey is dating Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Anne Vyalitsyna, better known as Anne V (because no one can spell anything anymore). The couple was photographed kissing at Madison Square Garden during the New York Rangers’ overtime playoff win on Thursday. Anne V even posted a pic to Instagram from their seats.
Vyalitsyna has appeared in nine straight SI swimsuit issues. You don’t do that without having incredible genetics. Anne V has also dated Adam Levine, True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard and DJ/producer Calvin Harris, because swimsuit models don’t date accountants, teachers or bloggers. All you get is pictures and dreams, dude.
Harvey, 24, apparently met Anne V. at the Garden earlier this month when they rode in an elevator together. Check out Harvey’s killer elevator pitch to the 27-year-old Russian blonde on Twitter that night. It’s some Bruce Wayne/Batman-level game. Honest compliment, but not too gushy and by the way I’M A MET, baby.
