Euron to Something

Wow. Season 7 Episode 2 of Game of Thrones was nuts. I can’t believe that there are only 5 episodes left this season. As is the new norm, I gave ‘Stormborn’ a 2nd watch and I’m here with some reactions and observations. I’ll say spoiler alert but you’re an idiot if you didn’t know that by now.

Loyalty, Loyalty, Loyalty

The episode started at Dragonstone where a giant storm was going on. Tyrion and Varys are in the War Room with Daenerys and the men exchange comments about how the storm resembles the one on the day that Dany was born. Daenerys pounced on the opportunity and started inquisiting Varys about his allegiance. After serving for King after King, Varys admitted that he does what he has to in order to survive. In fact, it was Varys that sent the assassin out on Dany in Essos. Normally a closed book, Varys was completely transparent with Daenerys and with some pleading from Tyrion, Dany made Varys swear to never conspire behind her back and to tell her to her face if he feels like she is failing the people. After Varys agrees, Dany comes back and swears to him that If you betray me, I’ll burn you alive.” Classic Targaryen threat.

Shall We Begin?

I’m going to try something new here with Game of Thrones. I have a little financial interest in this season’s outcome so I’m paying close attention to find any foreshadowing or clues in each episode. So, I plan on re-watching each episode and throwing out some thoughts and reactions in chronological order which hopefully is both humorous and informative. I’m not gonna nerd out (any more than writing a Game of Thrones post) and I’m not gonna try a stand-up routine either. Let me know what you think.

 

First off, Season 7 Episode 1 started off with a cold opening. That’s a rare thing in this show, and usually means that shit is about to go DOWN. The other cold openings that come to mind are the very first episode where the White Walkers were revealed, when the Lannisters melted down Ned Stark’s sword into two, and when the Hound was revealed to still be alive. That being said, seeing old ass Walder Frey’s face to start off Season 7 was surprising. However, I knew something was awry and that this wasn’t just a flashback because the Freys historically don’t know their asses from their elbows.

I had actually seen that the actor that plays Walder Frey was cast again this season so I had a suspicion that Arya would do some crazy shit with his face.

Who Will Sit Atop The Iron Throne at the End of Season 7 of Game of Thrones?

 

I love gambling. And I love Game of Thrones. So when I hopped on the Internet today and saw that I could bet on who is going to be sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of season 7 I couldn’t resist. Since I’m a man of the people I’ll walk you through some of the bets I made today so that you too can break the Iron Bank of Braavos.

But first and foremost, lets get in the mood to make money with some Weezy & T-Pain. GoT money….get it. GoT. Whatever.

Also, I guess I have to say spoiler warning.

Cause the Players Gonna Play Play Play Play Play and the Haters Gonna Hate Hate Hate Hate Hate

We’ve all heard the news by now. Russell Westbrook won the 2017 NBA MVP Award. He bested Oscar Robertson’s record for triple doubles in a season after an ugly breakup with former Sonics/Thunder co-star Kevin Durant. His revenge year brought out support from another artist who prides herself on ‘winning’ breakups:

To summarize T Swift’s video in one word:

 

HOWEVA, being the Journalist that I am, I started to dig deeper into the who’s, whats, whens, wheres, whys and hows this video surfaced.

New York Mets State of the Union: Even Mr. Met is Flipping Out

It’s been about three weeks since the rally dildo and Matt Harvey had a competition to see who was a bigger dick and things had been quiet…..too quiet ever since. Enter: Mr. Met. After enduring a rough 7-1 loss Wednesday night vs. the Brewers, Mr. Met exited the stadium giving some fans a classic New York good morning which will now be forever enshrined in the internet streets:

Now, listen. There are a lot of things to dive into here. First of all, Mr. Met has only four fingers. So, in theory, Mr. Met has two middle fingers and should be cleared of all charges. If Mr. Met really wanted to have the last laugh with the fans, he should’ve given the peace sign, as it would serve as a double middle finger. Just some food for thought.
