He is one of the few people to ever accomplish this epic journey in one lifetime, let alone in one season.
His journey began at the season opening game in Denver on September 5th as Peyton Manning led the Broncos past the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Baltimore Ravens. His quest ended in Seattle yesterday as he saw the Seahawks cruise past the St. Louis Rams by a score of 27-9. Interestingly, this means he began his trip at the stadium of the AFC’s No. 1 seed, and ended at the NFC’s No. 1 seed.
Along the way he witnessed the final game at Candlestick Park, the Thanksgiving Day game in Dallas, Jamaal Charles’ 5 touchdown game, the highest scoring game of the year, and five New England Patriots games.
In all he saw one out of every eight games played during this NFL season, or 12.5% of all games.
Today, Sean makes the drive from Seattle to Denver to return his rental car. Then, he’ll hop on a flight to New York City to be reunited with his wife in time for the New Year.
MacDonald provided weekly updates of his travels on the sport travel website Stadium Journey, where he is a contributor. He also has plans to publish a book about his journey.
