HOUSTON – Watt a day! It's J.J. Watt's birthday! The Houston Texans defensive end turned 27 Tuesday.
ESPN reported that he flew more than 20 of his teammates on a private jet to his cabin in his hometown of Pewaukee, Wisconsin. From the looks of Watt's Snapchat account, the boys are having fun eating, riding ATVs, hanging out by the fire and working out.

Can't ask for much better of a birthday than being surrounded by over 20 of your teammates and closest friends, everyone wanting and willing to work towards one common goal. Putting in the work in the morning, then some tactical laser tag tonight like some little kids. Can't beat it. Surround yourself with good people, be good to them and everyone lifts each other to new heights. Be willing to put in he work to get where you want to be, don't forget to have some fun along the way and live a life you can both enjoy and be proud of. Fortunate to have so many good people in my life.
We think Watt deserves a shout out on this day, especially since he knows how to make other people's birthdays special.
In January, 99-year-old Asalee "Mimi" Poole got her birthday wish when she met the NFL star before a Texans game. KPRC 2 captured the moment live on Facebook. Watch the story here.
