I love that "GIANTS WIN THE SERIES" is on there (but no picture).

I know its regional, and I wonder if I can get it here. If I can't can someone pick me one up?

They had to muck up the cover with that "we are still penn state" garbage. Maybe I'll Sharpie that part out. Eff penn state.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the only other Texan player to grace the cover of SI was HWNSNBM right? If so, let's remember he pulled off an incredible upset right after that.

I'm I the only one who wants a JJ Watt action figure with him in the same pose as all of those pictures?

I would totally make my Watt action figure beat the hell out of the Hulk Hogan one I had in the 80s. :truck:

I think it's nice of Watt to meet with a cancer patient. I'm sure that little girl was very happy to see him.

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/article-2/JJ-Watt-makes-SI-cover-attends-Justin-Bieber-concert/faa8b600-014e-416a-8fa4-fd1672a2a5a7
On Tuesday night, Watt attended a Justin Bieber concert at the Toyota Center in downtown Houston. He spent time backstage with Bieber, the 18-year-old pop sensation, and Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette. Watt went to the concert with Peter and Aaron Berry, young brothers from Houston who were paralyzed below the waist in a July 2011 car crash that also killed their parents.

Watt visited the Berry children in the hospital last summer and has been friends with them ever since. Bieber started a national “Show Your Heart” movement last year to raise money for the children.

“Justin has done a lot with the Berry children, and I was there with them to meet Justin,” Watt said. “It was good. I have a lot of respect for him for what he did for those kids, and obviously, he does a lot of charitable acts, so it was a good time. Those kids, they’re a riot. It was Peter’s birthday, and Justin took the cake and smashed it in his face, so they loved that. They’re just great kids. It’s unbelievable to see their spirit, to go through what they had to go through at such a young age and see the way they bounce back.”

SI cover pales in comparison to helping those kids, imo.
