A lot of high school seniors want to take Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt to their proms this spring. And, when we say a lot, we mean a lot. The guy has apparently been inundated with requests from young ladies asking him to be their date to the prom. It's gotten so out of control that Watt took to his Facebook page last night and announced that he has to turn all of them down.
"Ok, I feel like I need to address this," he wrote. "I see all of the prom invitations and I am flattered, but unfortunately I cannot take you all. Love you guys and appreciate your unbelievable support. Meet me at Reliant on gamedays this fall and we'll dance there."
Do you hear that sound? That's the sound of thousands of high school boys breathing a sigh of relief. Way to go, Watt!
