Kate Upton's Bizarre Hand Gestures At Tigers-Orioles Game, Explained (VIDEO)

Kate Upton must have thought the cameras weren't on her when she performed a strange hand ritual at Game 2 of the Detroit Tigers' playoff series against the Baltimore Orioles last week.

The Sports Illustrated cover model was spotted moving her hands in what looked like she was calling on a higher power to help her beau, Tiger Justin Verlander, come out victorious.

It turns out she wasn't partaking in the dark arts at all; Upton is reportedly a yoga fanatic, and she feels that moving one's hands in a certain way can develop and focus particular energies, similar to how it's done in some martial arts.

We accept it: Kate Upton is not a witch. But there is no doubt that she casts a spell no matter how she moves her hands.
