Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team vs Arizona's NFL Alumni

One of the hallmarks of the two week period between the end of the NFL's conference championship games and the beginning of its league championship game (aka - "The Super Bowl" may have heard about it :) ) is the multitude of related events held in the the Super Bowl's host city (and environs).

Some of the events are directly related to the NFL; some are not.

Many, maybe even most, of the events are little more than opportunities for varieties of rich and/or famous people to hob-knob with other varieties of rich and/or famous people.

A few, however, are genuinely *good* things.

From the NFL's Super Bowl Media Guide -

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team (WWAFT) will play against a team of Arizona's NFL Alumni*

Date: Wednesday, January 28

Time: 6 - 9 p.m.


     Shadow Mountain High School 

     2900 E Shea Blvd 

     Phoenix, AZ 

Cost: Adults - $10  Children and students under 18 - Free

The Wounded Warriors Amputee Football Team is made up of men and women who served and now need " a prosthetic device to engage in everyday life activities."  The team plays exhibition football games against current and retired pro athletes to help show that veterans, wounded and otherwise, are ready and able to live full lives.
