Texans defensive end J.J. Watt celebrated the Rockets’ win over the Mavericks at the Toyota Center by dancing with a fellow fan.
Texas and Wisconsin may not have much in common, but they are both enamored with Watt.
Watt had a ball at Tuesday night’s Game 2 playoffs match up against the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. The Texans’ superstar got so into the game, he proceeded to dance with a fellow fan to celebrate the home team’s victory.
Those moves! Watt seems as much at home in the stands as his does on the field.
And that woman does not seem to mind that Watt chose her as his dancing partner. Her husband is subtly the best part of this video though, just standing there, looking around like, “OK, are you done yet? I wanted to beat the traffic.”
It seem like Watt, who cheered on Wisconsin at the National Championship game a few weeks ago, loves watching his fellow athletes compete, and celebrating when they win. Or he just really enjoys buying overpriced beers. We’re assuming it’s the former.

Dancing with his neighbor was not the only thing Watt did to win over the hearts of Houstonians. He also surprised the 12-year-old kid who sang the national anthem.
Nicholas Connors, a 12-year-old singer, is becoming a fixture at Houston sporting events. Watt was so impressed by Connors’ rendition, he came down onto the court to surprise him. Apparently, when you are J.J. Watt, silly formalities like court security are rendered obsolete.
The look on this kid’s face is everything!
Apparently, Connors stuck with Watt. He sent a tweet on Wednesday morning asking the Twitterverse to help him get in contact with the young singer.
If Watt keeps this up, he may become Houston’s most beloved athletes, if he isn’t already.
