Former Badger excited to buy mother new car


(WAOW) – Former Wisconsin Badgers star J.J. Watt gave his mother quite the birthday present, according to his Twitter account.

Watt, who just signed a six-year, $100 million contract extension with the Houston Texans posted a photo of his mother with a brand new car.

"Growing up, on TV I saw all the commercials with cars with red bows on them at Christmas time," Watt said, according to ESPN. "I always thought to myself, 'Who can do that? Who can just buy a whole car for somebody's birthday or for Christmas and put a bow on it and drive it? Could you imagine if you could do that for somebody how awesome that would be?”
