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!
NBC’s Spartan Team Ultimate Challenge is back for Season 2, and so is host MJ Acosta. She shares how she got the gig and how it fits with her TWO sports anchor day jobs…in two languages! Plus more talk on her career path (including time as a Miami Dolphins cheerleader) and MJ is nice enough to indulge Mike’s obsession with Apolo Ohno.
