Default Down 7 in the 4th, Watt dances after a sack

Doesn't seem like the JJ we know and love, but OH, WAIT

The Reason for Watt's Sack Dance Yesterday


Quote:
What appeared to be a departure from his usual sack celebration meant a lot more to Texans defensive end J.J. Watt on Sunday.

It was a nod to the Berry children, with whom Watt has grown close.

“I was eating dinner at their house on Friday night,” Watt said. “They said they’re going to be watching the game. They said give us a signal. I said OK, when I get a sack, I’ll do the wheelchair.”

Willa, Aaron and Peter Berry were orphaned July 2, 2011, when a head-on collision on U.S. 285 killed their parents. The accident severely injured Willa, who was then 6, and paralyzed Aaron, then 8, and Peter, then 9, from the waist down.

The children’s story caught the attention of people and organizations locally and nationally. They got visits from athletes and donations from teams and other celebrities.

Watt befriended the children beyond the occasional fundraiser. He played wheelchair basketball with them last week, which gave him the idea for the post-sack celebration.

It’s not the first time Watt — who normally salutes after sacks — has promised a sack celebration to someone. Last weekend before the Texans’ Sunday night game in Chicago, Watt told Blake Geoffrion of the Montreal Canadiens he had a special sack celebration planned in his honor.

Geoffrion, who, like Watt, went to Wisconsin, fractured his skull a few days prior. The first tweet he sent after the injury and a subsequent surgery was about his conversation with Watt the day the Texans played the Bears.

But his game against the Bears was rare in that Watt did not record a sack. Sunday he got one, making that 111/2 this season. And he was ready.

“That was the wheelchair,” Watt said. “Apparently people are saying it’s a dance.”

Gotta say, it's the measure of a real man to follow through with his commitment to be a special part of these kids lives like JJ has. His word is his bond -- they call that integrity.

It looked like he was skiing to me, but what the heck do I know.

It was a pretty hard lick he put on him too.

That sack allowed us to get the ball back and score the tying TD. Reason enough to dance to me
