J.J. Watt

J.J. Watt has a good life. Even taking into account his cabin fiasco earlier this winter, when he was locked out of his rural home and forced to wait in a (incredibly high-end) barn for a locksmith to arrive, his bad days are better than the good days for most of us.

On his 27th birthday, Watt did what grown men do: He gathered 20 teammates and close friends and played a game most popular among children: laser tag.

After they'd all finished a workout, of course.


"Putting in the work in the morning, then some tactical laser tag tonight like some little kids," Watt wrote on Instagram. "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."

Watt has been rallying Texans teammates for offseason workouts this year, inviting a handful of key players to his Wisconsin cabin for a combination of workouts and leisure time. Laser tag will no doubt be remembered as one of the better diversions.
