Game 11 – Warrior Wishes Come True in Seattle!
After making warrior wishes come true in Denver & sleeping in the Denver airport for his 2nd straight night, my dad was on an early morning flight to Seattle to make Warrior Wishes come true at the Seahawks game at the 11th game of our 2015 mission.
Here are some of our favorite memories from making Warrior Wishes come true in Seattle.
Since we have been to all 32 NFL stadiums, a lot of people ask us what stadium we like the best? Dallas is in a league of its own, but CenturyLink field in Seattle is one of the coolest stadiums out there! The fans are intense, the weather is perfect for football & there is no better view than looking at the “Hawks Nest” with the Seattle city skyline in the background.
Today we hosted Navy Warrior Aaron Vandersnick & Army Ranger Matthew Wilson at the game. “Meet the Warriors” Below
The Seahawks won the game 13-10 on an incredible play by Kam Chancellor, who knocked the ball out of Calvin Johnson’s arm just inches before he crossed the Goal line. It was an incredible way to end an incredible day.
We would like to thank whole foods westlake for providing gift cards to the warriors, Sky City for offering to host the Warriors for dinner in the space needle, New Era Caps for providing Seahawks Caps & Deshawn Shead, DB for the Seahawks, for helping us secure great tickets for the game!
Immediately flying the game, my dad headed back to the airport to catch a red eye back to Chicago before heading out to Texas on Thursday for the 12th game of our 2015 Mission.
TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE!
