While the city of Houston was gearing up for the Texans' divisional playoff game against the New England Patriots, one six-year-old wasn't feeling the excitement. She was in tears.

In a video posted to YouTube, the young girl is crying because she's not 25 years old. Her mother asks why. It was simple, really: The girl says if she were 25, she'd be able to marry Texans defensive star J.J. Watt. (He's like renting a car in that way.)

The clip, and all of the crocodile tears held within, is fantastic:

Watt found out about the clip and asked his Facebook followers for help in finding the family. "We have to find her and turn those tears into a smile, he wrote."

The power of social media made it happen, and this week Watt "proposed" to six-year-old Breanna.

"Thanks to your help, we found 6-year-old Breanna and she said yes to being my pretend wife for the day," he posted on Wednesday.

It's a great story and one that will make Watt more popular with all genders and age groups.

And, Breanna? I've been there before, girl. The difference is, I never got to marry Belinda Carlisle, not even for a day.
