Each day we provide analysis on the hidden meanings and layered clues left by future Green Bay Packer JJ Watt, as well as Watt-themed tidbits and fun.
Today’s report focuses on a post from Mr. Watt’s official Twitter account yesterday at 8:54am EST.
Harmless meme? Maybe not so much.
Everyone in the world, even Bears fans, knows about our good friend mitochondria and what he does for our cells. Without this microscopic powerhouse, our cells would be like a train without an engine. Maybe even…a D-Train?
Watt sees himself in the humble mitochondria and all he’s looking for is a cell to power. If you’re still not convinced, let’s go back to the meme itself.
The phrase “Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell” was coined in 1957 by biologist Philip Siekevitz. Dr. Siekevitz accomplished much in his career, particularly in the field of microbiology. After finishing his undergrad at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science, he obtained his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Cal Berkley, the same prestigious institute of higher learning that produced the best quarterback in the history of the NFL.
That can’t be a coincidence.
