J.J. Watt received a check for $60,345 but he'll have to wait until July 17th to cash it.
Earlier this year, the three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year agreed to do an interview with the hosts of the popular Pardon My Take podcast, if they could raise $50,000 for his charity, the J.J. Watt Foundation. It took less than two days for the Barstool Sports podcast's AWLs (Award-Winning Listeners) to quickly surpass the goal. Watt and the hosts agreed to conduct the sit-down interview in either Houston or Wisconsin, depending on the four-time All-Pro's availability which may explain the July 17th date on the check.
Pardon My Take created the "Uhh Hey J.J." catchphrase that its fans frequently and enthusiastically use to reply to Watt on Twitter.
