after his speech at the 2012 Gravity Summit UCLA Warren Sapp gave it up for the US Veterans
Warren Sapp seemed to have a lot of fun bustin my chops and messing with me, but he was the nicest guy and was up for whatever I needed when I interviewed him about his huge Twitter following.
When I asked him to give a shout out for the vets he was all over it and I thank Warren for his kindness and great sense of humor – JW
