J.J. Watt raises $300,000 for charity, charges mound in softball game

J.J. Watt is Houston's most popular current athlete, and it's not hard to see why. The Texans defensive end is charming his town with antics like the above, a fake mound-charge at the J.J. Watt Charity Classic. The event, held this past weekend in Sugar Land, Texas, raised more than $300,000 to help fund after-school athletic programs for kids. And oh, do the Houstonians love this guy.

But yeah, that fight. The game pitted the Texans defense against the offense, and with Andre Johnson, Matt Schaub, Owen Daniels and other notables on the roster, you can imagine that the Texans brass got a little nervous at millions of dollars' worth of ballplayers rolling around on a dusty Texas ballfield. Fortunately, no injuries resulted.
