JJ Watt Buys Lunch for Houston Firefighters and Police Officers, Just Because (Pic)

jj watt buys lunch

JJ Watt buys lunch for members of the Houston Fire and Police Departments? Writes lovely, heartfelt letter thanking them for all their hard work and sacrifice? Of course he does.

We were made aware of this yesterday when a Houston firefighter tweeted out a photo of said pizza and a copy of the letter. Watt doesn’t mention Thanksgiving, which of course is coming up this Thursday, but we can assume that’s what this was about.


In case you don’t have supervision, here’s what the letter says:

I just wanted to send y’all a small token of my appreciation for everything you do. My dad & uncle were both firefighters, so I spent a lot of time around the firehouse when I was younger and gained a great deal of respect for both firefighters & the police force along the way. Y’all show up day in & day out, never knowing what the day might hold and never getting enough thanks for what you do, yet you still continue to put others before yourselves and save lives because of it. As athletes, we often get the headlines and big crowds, but just like the men & women in our military, y’all are the ones who truly deserve the credit, appreciation & admiration. I know it’s not much, but please enjoy lunch on me today. Thank you for all that you do!


That JJ Watt is a classy guy, no?
