Pewaukee native and NFL star, JJ Watt, showed love on Twitter to another Wisconsin native and U.S. Olympics star, Matt Hamilton.

Watt posted a picture of him in a "USA Curling" t-shirt.

Hamilton commented asking, "Are you my newest fan??? I'm going to assume so! #Wisconsinboys #Badgers."

Watt responded with a picture of Hamilton gliding down the ice. "Who else looks this majestic whilst gliding down a fresh sheet of ice? Of course I am a fan. #SconnieProud."

The athletes showed how their Wisconsin pride can connect them on a whole new level.

Matt and Rebecca Hamilton finished in 7th place overall in the mixed doubles curling competition. The two will compete in the upcoming men's and women's divisions.
