References to Game of Thrones are popping up in the oddest places…

One would think sports and Game of Thrones make odd bedfellows, but references to the series keep popping up (See Game of Zones and NBA on TNT).

Last Friday, Scott Van Pelt (SportsCenter) was discussing the Rockets-Warriors game (where the Warriors once more killed the Rockets’ chances of an NBA Championship…yay) and mentioned “Royalty being in the house”. Scott got her first name out but seemed to stumble over Emilia’s surname, finally blurting out “She rides on dragons!” (I tried to find a sound bite; You’ll have to trust me when I say it was kinda cute.)

Houston Rockets’ mascot, Clutch the Bear, welcomed the Queen of Dragons by “bending the knee”:

Yesterday morning, Fox Sports show “Speak for Yourself” compared the events happening in the Lakers’ camp to Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark in Season 1. (Yikes!)

Finally, “Speak for Yourself” leaked that Green Bay Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, had a cameo in last Sunday’s episode, “The Bells”.
