Video: Ex-Badger J.J. Watt visits leukemia fan

Is it possible not to like Wisconsin product J.J. Watt? Not after watching the video above. Watt, an NFL superstar who does as much good off the field as on it, recently reminded us how likeable he is. After hearing the story of a local leukemia fan who named the robot that goes to school for him “Watt,” the former Badger defensive lineman paid the boy, Cristian Beasley, a surprise visit.

Talk about a touching, heartwarming – you name the adjective – act, this is absolutely incredible.

Watt gets what it means to be a pro athlete, a hero to so many people, and he proves it time and time again. Between his play on the field and his reputation off it, Wisconsin must be thrilled to call Watt its own.

This visit was an awesome for JJ Watt to do. But things like this get lost in the obsession for championships.

J.J. Watt, a former pizza delivery man in his hometown of Pewaukee, Wisconsin is a super player and person.
