Perhaps the most charismatic man in Houston sports history turns one year older today.
Thank you for all of the crazy birthday love, it is very much appreciated! 25 years old, looking forward to what the future holds.— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) March 22, 2014
Last year, I was two days late in writing about J.J. Watt's birthday, and then the Houston Texans had a painful 2-14 season. Not a conincidence, and not a mistake I'll make again, thank you very much.
The only thing that stinks about birthdays is that you're one year closer to turning another year older. It's true. Next year he'll be 26, and then 27, after that 28 and 29, and then.... 30. Oh, man, he's only five years away from being 30! The cosmic machination of time affects even demi-gods like Watt. The magnitude of this on a macro scale is hard to comprehend, so I'll stop this post before I have an existential meltdown.
So, indeed, a very happy birthday to you, Mr. Watt. Hopefully you'll be on the receiving end of a fat contract extension very soon, because that's all many of us are hoping for on our birthdays this year.
Send Watt your love in the Comments below and enjoy the highlight video. Happy Saturday.
