Tuesday is National Siblings Day in America, and Houston Texans superstar J.J. Watt didn’t waste the opportunity to shout out his brothers, T.J. and Derek Watt, on Twitter.
Along with a touching message, Watt shared a throwback picture of the three of them hanging out in a blow-up “pool” back when they were all boys.
From the backyard in the “pool” (on concrete by the way) to the basement’s dangerous mini-sticks games, to the biggest stage, couldn’t ask for two better bros to both push me and talk trash in the group chat to me the entire way. #NationalSiblingsDay pic.twitter.com/N9noVJPpUE

It’s pretty remarkable that all three of these men made it to the NFL — Derek Watt is a fullback with the Los Angeles Chargers and T.J. Watt is a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. And two of them are veritable stars, which is even rarer still.
Watt has always been very open about his fondness for his siblings, and it’s pretty cool to see him constantly lifting them up in such a public way.
Maybe one day, these three brothers will have kids playing in the NFL, which would then see the Watts rival the famous Matthews family.
