JJ Watt is cocky about his soccer skills. JJ Watt, it turns out, should not be cocky about his soccer skills.
Watt recently linked up with the Albion Hurricanes girls club side in Houston, where he plays for the NFL’s Texans, to have a nice jog-about during practice to test skills he hasn’t flexed since the third grade. Watt, notably, is dating Kealia Ohai, a former national champion with North Carolina who also hit the winning goal in a 1-0 game against Germany in the final of the 2012 U20 World Cup. So we no doubt have Ohai at least partly to thank for the joy you’re about to witness.
Watt, who’s probably done enough to apply for mayor of Houston by now (you can apply for that, yes?), was schooled as the middleman in a rondo, spouted off some nonsense terminology (I’M GOING DIAGONAL) and generally just enjoyed the hell out of the day.
Now if Watt could just win more than one playoff game in the next six years, as he has so far, we’ll be all set.
