Detroit Tigers' ace Justin Verlander was trying to make a delicious pizza for himself and girlfriend Kate Upton when something terrible happened: he dropped the food while pulling it out of the oven, sending the cheese and sauce flying all over the kitchen floor.

Upton decided to share the Cy Young Award winner's cooking troubles with the world through the magic of Twitter.

You do not become a world-class athlete like Verlander without overcoming failure though, so the pitcher put another pizza in the oven to let his supermodel girlfriend know that he was not deterred.

Verlander has a Cy Young Award, dates Kate Upton and has a seemingly endless supply of pizzas, making him the frontrunner for happiest person in the world.
