GETTING DOWN — Mawwiage is what bwings us here today.
Wuv — twue wuv — is what bwings us together.
With all references to "The Princess Bride" aside, let’s celebrate the recent nuptials of former Alta High soccer star (and current Chicago Red Stars forward) Kealia Ohai and her new husband, J.J. Watt, who plays football for the Houston Texans in the National Football League.
As always, click the video above for more Great Clips of the Week.
Bust a Watt
Ohai, a Draper native who went on to a career with North Carolina, the Houston Dash, the U.S. women’s national team and most recently the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL, married Houston’s Watt in a ceremony Saturday night in the Bahamas.
The couple, who were introduced by Watt’s former Texans teammate Brian Cushing and Ohai’s sister Megan, was engaged in May 2019 and tied the knot nine months later.
But the biggest spectacle occurred that night during the reception, when Watt left his best moves on the dance floor while partying with Grandma.
Congratulations to the bride and groom — and Grandma, too.
Historic Stephan A.
History was made at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.
No, we’re not talking about the first-ever all-star game to adopt the acclaimed “Elam Ending” from The Basketball Tournament fame.
We’re not even talking about Team Lebron or Team Giannis, or even Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, who each received a first all-star nod.
History was made a day earlier, in the annual NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, when head coach Stephen A. Smith (yes, that Stephen A. Smith from ESPN) was issued the first-ever technical foul for arguing with an official.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Smith had plenty of reasons to complain, though; Team Stephen A. lost to Team Wilbon, 62-47 in the 18th edition of the annual event.
As the above mention illustrates, the NBA All-Star Game has been less and less about the game as the all-stars.
And now, it's more about who you will see there — stars, celebrities, national media personalities ... and Tik Tok stars.
Like Jalaiah Harmon, or as most the Gen Z will known here, the creator of the "Renegade" dance. At 14, she's founded a viral dance sensation — though even that title is a bit controversial — and she took to one of the sports world's biggest stages in Chicago this weekend to prove her case.
