Aaron Rodgers REALLY likes talking about Game of Thrones
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a seldom discussed show on HBO called Game of Thrones. There are houses and alliances and queens and dragons.
Aaron Rodgers is a huge fan. Not only that, but he is a master GoT theorist. Rodgers discussed his obsession this week with The Ringer’s Kevin Clark, and presented his most sweeping current theory.
(This theory contains spoilers for those uninitiated in GoTology)
“I think that Jon Snow, Daenerys, and the Hand of the Queen [Tyrion Lannister] — I think they are all related. Three dragons, three riders, three siblings,” Rodgers says. “We know from Bran, the Three-Eyed Raven, that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow’s father. The Mad King might have been his father, might have been him — and that would make Daenerys and Jon brother and sister. And then Tyrion, we don’t know who his mother is, who Tywin slept with. I think there’s some sort of relationship. At least Jon Snow and Daenerys are going to be working together, and they are mining the dragon glass.”
It seems Rodgers can’t shake last Sunday’s memorable episode so the Packers quarterback held a GoT-related contest Thursday.
