Two things I love: Game of Thrones and wishing I was on Game of Thrones. For the HBO show’s Season 7 premiere, I put my Braavosi coin where my mouth is to see how I’d stack up in a sword fight against guys like Jon Snow and Jamie Lannister.
Skip to the 1:05 mark in the Daily Glow episode below to watch me go through armored combat training before jumping in a real fight against a (much bigger) knight-in-training. Things…didn’t go well.
I knew I was in for a beating when I started sweating profusely just putting on the armor. But the good news? Not only did I battle to a draw in my second fight – I didn’t bleed or puke! King in The North!
