Thank you, J.J. Watt.
We needed this. After 2 full days of anger and disgust over the Ray Rice debacle, thank you for restoring our faith in what athletics is supposed to be all about.
The Houston Texans’ Defensive End recently signed a huge, $100 million contract. And in his first game, he certainly earned it. During the Texans’ 17-6 home win against Washington, Watt registered two tackles for losses including a sack, blocked an extra point, recovered a fumble and batted down a pass. Watt also was credited with five hurries on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
But it was during his postgame interview on Fox with reporter Laura Okmin, that Watt showed his true colors, and connected with millions of Americans sick and tired of entitled sports brats and unaccountable thugs.
“I Googled, ‘What do rich people buy?’ because I don’t feel like a rich person, and I don’t really try to act like a rich person, so I don’t know what they buy,” Watt said to Okmin. “I didn’t really like the stuff I saw, so I’m gonna stick with my humble lifestyle and just keep working out.”
Way to go, J.J.!
