It’s good to be J.J. Watt.
The 26-year-old was the runner-up for 2014 NFL MVP honors, and his $100 million contract extension kicks in next season. He also has incredibly attractive Instagram models practically begging for his attention, met lifelong crush Jennifer Aniston because of his newfound fame and now has caught Kelly Kapowski’s eye.
That’s right: Tiffani Thiessen knows who J.J. Watt is, and she made his day in the process.
The Houston Texans defensive end met Mario Lopez — who starred alongside Thiessen in hit 90s show “Saved By The Bell” — before Sunday’s 19-9 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and tweeted a photo with him, asking “Where is Kelly Kapowski?” via hashtag.
Thiessen responded with a photo of herself and a recent copy of Men’s Health magazine — featuring Watt on the cover — after the game.
Kapowski was — and still is — the heartthrob of a generation of kids (who now are around Watt’s age) who grew up watching the show. Understandably, Watt was on cloud nine.
It’s perfect timing, too — Watt recently expressed his sadness at an inability to find a girlfriend. Unfortunately for Watt, Thiessen is married, so it appears the search will continue.
