    For those who don't know, JJ's fiancee is Houston Dash (and occasional USWNT) player Kealia Ohai. He's been a big supporter of the sport.

    Correct.
    Our local news had a segment on JJ where he flew over to London and went to a Chelsea home match, this several seasons back, and the Chelsea FO gave him a massive blue jersey with Watt and 99 on it. Their FO gave him a special look at the stadium and the club. Told our TV station reporter that "soccer is a great sport and that he hopes that it grows in our nation." Stated he had got bit by the soccer bug several years back.
    Speaking of American pro athletes that support Chelsea, saw several years back that Kevin Garnett as well caught the soccer bug, had a mini field and full sized goals installed in his backyard. Went all in on picking up playing the sport and took on Chelsea as his EPL team.
