Anyone who makes it to 99 should get what she darn well pleases on her birthday and, on Saturday, Houston Texans star J.J. Watt made one 99-year-old’s wish come true.
Asalee “Mimi” Poole, who turned 99 on New Year’s Eve, said she wanted only to meet Watt. Her family posted a video on Facebook and the Houston Texans’ defensive end made it happen just before the Texans’ first-round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Poole got a couple of autographs, including one in her No. 99 jersey, and a big hug from her favorite player. Wonder what J.J. will get her next year.
