I Would Not Survive ‘Game of Thrones’

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!

Game of Thrones season preview: Ep. 57

Game of Thrones is back – and so is my podcast! After a few weeks away, I came back with a new episode previewing my favorite show on TV. Called my old college buddy Ben – who’s read the books several times and is the biggest fan of the series I know – to talk a bunch of theories and speculation.

Will Jon and Dany accidentally hook up? Will a dragon die? Who’s the greatest GoT fighter of all time? We tackle all the hard-hitting questions. After the episode, make sure to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. I’m sure I’ll be tweeting about the season premiere as it happens. Winter is here!
