J.J. Watt's epic 'Saved by the Bell' Twitter exchange

If you grew up in the '90s, there were a few certainties in life: Crystal Pepsi was (and still is) the drink of the future; blowing on Nintendo cartridges fixed all glitches; and, of course, Kelly Kapowski was the "it" girl on television.

For Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, it was a "Saved by the Bell" mind-blowing moment Sunday as he got to do a little online flirting with Bayside High's number one cheerleader.

Watt tweeted the below image of him and Mario Lopez (a.k.a. A.C. Slater, star quarterback of Bayside High) posing before the Texans' win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at NRG Stadium.

Watt, for his part, couldn't contain his excitement.

Long live the '90s!
