J.J. Watt has fun with Canadian interview

J.J. Watt spent a lot of time in Canada as kid and calls himself "a big fan" of the neighbor up north.

Last month, Watt was interviewed by Cabral Richards of TSN, Canada's sports television network, and shared his love for Canada. The two discussed Watt's inner voice - "pretty confident but reserved," according to Watt" - his love of Canada, and whether or not the 2014 All-Pro defensive end would be consider becoming a two-sport professional athlete.

"I can play hockey," Watt admitted. "I don't know if I can still play at the level necessary to compete in the National Hockey League, but that would be unbelievable.

"I stopped playing when I was 13, so my skills are still at age 13," he added.

At the end of the interview, Richards presented Watt with a quarterback survival kit. The metal lunchbox had a Watt graphic on the outside, and Advil, dark sunglasses, an ace bandage, a participant ribbon, among other humorous get well items for Watt's opponents, on the inside.

"Canadians - man, you do it right," Watt said, laughing, after seeing the contents of the kit.

Watt even dropped some of his Canadian knowledge in the interview.

"I already feel like I need to stop by a Tim Horton's on my way home, some ketchup chips, let's go!"
