J.J. Watt Hockey

You’re never going to believe this but a professional athlete is good at sport different than the sport he’s paid millions of dollars to play. Pick up your jaw, it’s true. There’s video proof.

Today, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt dazzles the world by playing the sport of hockey sport. “A football player playing hockey?!?” you say? What a renaissance man!

It gets better. Hit play. Watch the massive but agile Watt move one way, then the other, then back the other before skating an almost straight line towards a net as empty as the stands during a Texans game in December. It’s a fantastic display from a man paid for his athleticism. He executing a drill that takes at least three or four weeks for a Pee Wee hockey player to master.

A sensational smoothness from the Wisconsin native, a part of the country known for warm weather sports like volleyball and “where the fuck is my car under all this snow?” and months of beach weather.
