If one of the best pro athletes in the world asks you to ride your bike, then you let them do it, right? It’s a no-brainer? Well, you may want to reconsider if he’s 6’5, 290 and happens to be named J.J. Watt.
The Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers are taking part in joint practices today, which left time for Watt and his teammates to take part in the “Dream Drive”, a Packers tradition where kids give their bikes to players to ride from the locker room to the practice field, per For The Win. Watt hopped right on and things were going okay for about a split second before he broke a little dude’s bike. Instead of testing his luck, Watt said screw it and just picked the thing up as his friends slowly cruised beside him.
You can’t make this stuff up.
If there’s one thing we can count on it’s that Watt will surely buy the young fan a new bike. And you know what, it might even be a better bike, with a signed jersey, too. Let’s not forget that this guy helped raise $41.6 million in Hurricane Harvey relief, the largest crowd-sourced fundraiser in history, per the J.J. Watt Foundation. The man has an enormous heart.
J.J. is scheduled to make $13 million this year so that should also help.
