Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt didn't want to reveal what he was planning for his mother after he signed his six-year, $100 million extension. Connie Watt got one surprise today on her birthday.
I've wanted to be able to do this my whole life. For all you've worked & sacrificed, you deserve it. Happy B-Day Mom! pic.twitter.com/oP1AWQwGwu— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) October 1, 2014
"Growing up, on TV I saw all the commercials with cars with red bows on them at Christmas time," Watt said today. "I always thought to myself, 'Who can do that? Who can just buy a whole car for somebody’s birthday or for Christmas and put a bow on it and drive it? Could you imagine if you could do that for somebody how awesome that would be?'
"My whole life my parents have made sacrifices for me. They’ve done everything. They’ve made it so my brothers have had opportunities for success. To be able to give back to her and to surprise her like that, and to see my brother got me a nice video of her when she first saw it, there’s really no better feeling in the world than that to be able to take care of your family, take care of those closest to you. There’s no better way to spend my money than that."
