Ashlee Sanchez bought tickets to J.J. Watt's annual (and popular) charity softball game, set for Friday.
One little problem, though ...
If only @JJWatt can write me a letter to excuse me from work on Friday because I already have tickets to the game and I can't miss it!!! 😔— ashlee sanchez (@ashlee_sanchez) April 27, 2015
Well, the Houston Texans star was not about to let a fan -- who lives in Brownsville, Texas, five hours away from the Sugar Land, Texas, event -- flail in the wind.
Watt responded, in handwritten fashion:
What a move! And one we've only come to expect from one of the more fan-interactive stars in sports.
Now if only Watt would write us a letter, too ... because ... you know ... we also bought tickets ... yeah, that's it ... we totally bought tickets.
UPDATE: Sanchez's boss -- Eric Garza, the district clerk of Cameron County -- could not say no to Watt's request -- despite himself being a Dallas Cowboys fan.
This, even though Friday will be just Sanchez's fourth day of work!
@JJWatt wow this too cool! Thank you so much hope it works! 👍🏽😁 tomorrow is actually my first day on the job!— ashlee sanchez (@ashlee_sanchez) April 28, 2015
