JJ Watt Flew 20 Teammates to His Cabin in Wisconsin to Celebrate His 27th Birthday…And Work Out (Pics)
Houston Texans superstar JJ Watt turned 27 on Tuesday, and he celebrated by throwing a slumber party.
Of course, this wasn’t the kind of slumber party you had when you were 12. JJ Watt is a grown man who earned $11 million playing football last year. So his birthday slumber party entailed flying 20 of his teammates to his cabin in rural Wisconsin on a private jet.
Attendees included outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, inside linebacker Brian Cushing, cornerback Kevin Johnson, receiver Cecil Shorts III, and even punter Shane Lechler, who Watt probably invited as a joke. (Just kidding. Punters are people too.) Oh, and former Texans center Ben Jones was also there, even though he now plays for the Titans. Apparently he wound up directing a plane…at night…while shirtless.

What did the boys do? Well, they ate. They raced ATVs. They played laser tag. And because it’s JJ Watt we’re talking about, they worked out, both in his “barn” (which has been converted to a full-size gym) and the NX Level training facility run by Brad Arnett, Watt’s personal trainer since high school.
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.
