This Sunday will be a family affair for the Watt family when Texans star J.J. Watt joins his brothers’ T.J. and Derek on the field when the Steelers take on Houston, but we got a sneak preview on Friday.
During T.J and Derek’s Zoom call with the media, brother J.J. chimed in with a question of his own.
“We have a question (from) Justin James in Houston,” the moderator said.
“Much Better Brother Gazette here,” said Watt. “I just had a question, this offseason in the beginning of the year when we were going through quarantine, it looked like you guys were training at a really nice facility with a nice gym, a good field, I was just wondering what the membership fees were at such a nice facility while none of the gyms were open?” asked Watt.
The Watt brothers trained together in the offseason.
“I can take this one Derek because I was a high up member of that community,” said T.J. “We cut the grass, that was about it, but the thing about the club owner was that he really enjoyed cutting the grass himself, he really enjoyed lining the football field for his members, the grass was always pristine, the gym was always clean . . . we’re just very grateful that he let us use his facilities.”
“Sounds like a great facility,” J.J. said most likely referring to his own facility.
J.J. even got a follow up in.
“Do you guys always do your press conferences together, thanks I’ll hang up and listen.” Said J.J. smiling.
“It’s a first,” said Derek. “Side by side, always J,” said T.J.
The two Steelers then told their Texan brother to go practice and get to his meetings.
The Watt brothers have a group chat but T.J. says it really isn’t exciting. T.J. says Derek sends pictures of his child, J.J. complains about the heat in Houston and T.J. doesn’t have anything to say.
The Steelers take on the Texans this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field.
Unfortunately, due to current circumstances the Watt parents won’t be about to attend in person but their children say they understand.
