If he weren’t so darn talented, I’d say T.J. Watt‘s good luck charm is magical and should be given its own spot in the Hall of Fame right along with him.
Before every game, Watt turns to his late grandfather for some luck.
“I have a picture of my late grandfather in my locker that I keep with me,” Watt said in an interview with Steelers Wire on behalf of Snickers. “I just spend a moment with him, reflecting on my whole career before I take the field every single day.”
That whole career has had some stellar highlights, including 2021 Defensive Player of the Year and a historic 85.5 sack total to go along with seven interceptions, 177 quarterback hits, 25 forced fumbles and 10 recoveries — one of which went for a touchdown earlier this season.
Snickers Luck Shop
T.J. Watt wants every fan to have a good luck charm. He teamed up with Snickers, the official chocolate sponsor of the NFL, to help fans find that special item to support the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Snickers partnered with the NFL to launch the Snickers Luck Shop, where fans can enter for a chance to purchase a certified item to make their good luck charm.
“For $7.77, you could buy your own lucky item,” Watt explained. “It can be anything from a piece of turf from your home team, or it can be a beanie or just a sweatshirt. Just a fun way to be able to have a lucky item on Sundays. I think they’re doing a phenomenal thing, and it’s a fun thing to get on board with.”
Items will be made available for purchase via drops throughout the NFL season.
