J.J. Watt buys himself log cabin in middle of nowhere as reward for solid season

BY Brett Smiley • January 30, 2015

Wisconsin native, Houston Texans Pro Bowl defensive end and possible lumberjack J.J. Watt has rewarded himself for a tremendous 2014 season by buying himself a new log cabin in the “middle of nowhere” in his home state, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle.

“It’s really minimalistic,” Watt said. “The only thing I have to focus on is training and that’s the way I like it. There’s no frills, there’s nothing to distract you up here.”

It's so fitting of the hard-working, borderline folk hero. “It’s just an empty space and a log cabin and snow" said Watt, who signed a 6-year, $100 million contract with the Texans in September.

As others have noted on Twitter, imagining Watt tirelessly training in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere evokes images of Rocky Balboa preparing for his fight against Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV".

Hearts on fire!
