Operation Warrior Wishes, Formerly known as All32in17, began as a father & son bucket list. A dream to be the first father & son to ever attend an NFL game at all 32 NFL stadiums in 1 season.
Matt & Craig Steichen, a father and son from the suburbs of chicago, bonded thru attending sporting events together. Their passion was going to football games. In February of 2012 Matt was building a scrapbook with pictures of all the stadiums him & his dad had visited. As he pieced it together he had an idea to create a sports bucketlist for him and his dad to complete. The first item on the bucket list was to attend an NFL game at every stadium across the country in their lifetime. But then Matt asked his Dad a simple question.
“Is it possible to attend a game at all 32 NFL stadiums in 1 season?”
The answer was unknown. Over the next few months The father & son patiently waited for the 2012 NFL schedule to be released mid April. The day it was released The duo spent all night trying to logistically map out if it was possible.
