J.J. Watt Heroically Called Into Question The Validity of The NFL's 'Top 100' List Because He Was Rated Too High
There's not many things that are lamer than crying about your position, or lack thereof, on a meaningless list that you know your own competition blindly and carelessly voted on just to give a 24/7/365 television station something (i.e. anything) to talk during the dead of the NFL offseason. Whining that you were rated too high on that incredibly meaningless list, however, is one of those few things. Leave it to the most nauseatingly fake humble person on Earth to stay on-brand by trying to give back the empty recognition afforded to him by his peers.
Honestly, I'm not even upset with J.J. Watt. I'm upset that I didn't see this move coming. That's probably because I care equally as much about the personal problems of my neighbors as I do about irrelevant positioning of those gracing the NFL's 'Top 100' list. Still, I should have known that the most modest attention whore (figure out that oxymoron) in all of sports would find a way to turn an undeserved "accomplishment" into a ringing endorsement of his character. Considering his unrelenting facade, I guess we should just be glad that he wasn't given more of a platform to portray himself as the preeminent selfless, upstanding human by giving back an actual award that was accidentally presented to him. Like - oh, I don't know - an Oscar, for instance...
