J.J. Watt does not care for your modern slang terms

Wednesday January 7th, 2015

J.J. Watt just finished an MVP-caliber season in which he made 20.5 sacks, forced four fumbles and scored five touchdowns. That kind of production takes a lot of focus on football, so you will have to excuse him if he is not fully up on modern slang words.

His difficulty with some current terms came to the forefront on Wednesday when a fan referred to him by the internet's term of endearment du jour, "Bae," to which the Texans official account responded "Totes." Watt was very confused.

Pity the poor soul who attempts to explain "on fleek" to the All-Pro defensive end.
