HBO’s awesomely gratuitous fantasy series can’t return soon enough. Here is what the AFC championship game would look like if it were a real-life manifestation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world. Coming tomorrow: the NFC title game edition.
New England Patriots
Jamie Lannister = Tom Brady
How They're Alike: Both men share abilities that few men possess along with a never-ending supply of self-confidence and smug faces. Also, if anyone in King's Landing would shamelessly wear Ugg boots/shoes, it would be Jamie Lannister.
Ser Alliser Thorne = Bill Belichick
How They're Alike: Two men who seem to joylessly go about their jobs, with Thorne training the newest members of the Night's Watch and Belichick trying to deliver a fourth Super Bowl title to New England. Almost unarguably the surliest men in their respective professions.
Tyrion Lannister = Wes Welker and Danny Woodhead
How They're Alike: Too easy.
