    Fantastic story during Monday Night Countdown of a father and son who dedicated themselves to taking two wounded warriors (different each week) to each of the 32 NFL stadiums for tailgating, tours if possible, meeting players and the game.

    For some reason the website is down right now but it is All32in17.com.

    They had estimated the whole thing was going to cost them $18k (they are not wealthy) but have received some savings along the way when people heard what they were doing.

    Well they just got a huge savings as Ditka said he would fund the entire program. Great people all around.

    Saw that. Probably down because of the huge influx of people they just got logging on.

    My wife & I saw that on Monday Night Countdown too. We both thought it was a great story and a great thing for a father & son to do. Just going to all of those games together would be a great memory. Add in what they are doing for the wounded warriors, and you've got life changing memories that are happening for multiple people/families.

    Hats off to those two guys. They seemed very genuine in what they were doing.
