Did You See This? J.J. Watt and Yao Ming photo

Wired for sound during an NFL game this season, Wisconsin product and current Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt famously told Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice: “I’ve eaten burritos bigger than you.” It was funny, because Watt, 6-5, 295 pounds, dwarfs Rice, 5-8, 212 pounds. On Tuesday, it was Watt’s turn as the burrito, if you will.

The 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year had lunch with former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, all 7-6 of him, and tweeted (@JJWatt) the photo above.

Safe to say, Watt has never looked smaller. Honestly, look at that photo. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think he was just a random young fan.

And now look at Watt next to Penn State’s own Lisa Salters and teammate Arian Foster.
