Still have to license all of the college football teams in the game.  It used to be a big conglomeration under a single contract but I think some big name colleges broke off from the group.  Generic players and coaches  are a good start.

There's a rumor that Ned made a special tombstone in the Stark crypts for Jon which has his real name on it.  It's in part of the crypts blocked by some rubble.  In the books Jon dreams a lot about walking in the crypts, not wanting to be there but knowing he has to keep going.

I'll take the Scarlet and Gray glasses off for a second and tell you that it might not be worth a 12 hour round trip unless you really want to come to Columbus for the weekend.  It also depends on how well you follow recruiting.  The biggest question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you want to watch a football camp.

I went to it in 2015.  I was able to walk down into the AA or A section around the 50 yard line without much difficulty.  Some of the active and alumni football players were there.  Some gave autographs, but autographs were more for the children who were in the stands.  The entire coaching staff was out of the field, and some of the active players were coaching recruits as well.  Zeke was going around tackling all of the incoming freshmen and stealing their shoes (I remember that Weber and Burrow fell victim).  Ohio State videos were playing on the big screen, Urban was selling the Natty and The Game hard that FNL.  It was cool to see recruits I knew take reps in the football camp.  Danny Clark threw passes, I saw Gavin Cupp go up against some of the DL we were recruiting.  But overall it's a football camp open to the public inside Ohio Stadium.  

Now if you combine that on Friday night with some other things over the weekend it might be worth the 12 hour round trip.  Like go to Texas de Brasil at Easton and stuff your face full of bacon wrapped filet mignon until you feel like you're going to die.  Or if you have kids take them to COSI or the Zoo.  It really just depends on how much you want to see a football camp in Ohio Stadium with the opportunity to do other things over the weekend.

That was a he said she said accusation.  I'm not by any means condoning it, but that's what it was.

The military veteran in me was screaming that the castle wasn't checked out first for booby traps or insurgent fighters before Danny went inside.  Think about George Washington just strolling into an seemingly abandoned city or fort during the Revolutionary War.  No a very good idea, cut the head off an animal and the body dies.

My thought was Stannis was all-in for the fight against the White Walkers and took everyone with him.  In the books Dragonstone was still defended, Loras Tyrell gets pretty messed up trying to retake the castle from whatever forces were left inside.

There's only one witness who is still alive who saw everything that went down at the Tower of Joy, Howland Reed.  Bran can be a witness now as well.  

Targs have been polygamous in the past so there is no reason to believe Rhaegar would be against it.  It was also clear that his marriage to Elia was a more of a marriage pact with Dorne, Rhaegar truly loved Lyanna Stark.  If the Mad King didn't start Robert Rebellion by killing Ned's father and brother the kingdom would've found out about Rhaegar and Lyanna, it would've been frowned upon but accepted.  In terms of evidence of polygamy, Aegon the Conqueror married both of his sisters.  It was really common among the Vayrians, the Targs turned away from the practice after the conquest to get the faith of the seven off of their backs.

I think honestly think Gendry is going to be an important character as a blacksmith.  He worked for one of the only guys in the world who knew how to make Valyrian Steel.  Nobody is going to join any army other than Danny's once the dragons are seen for the first time.

Comment 17 Jul 2017

Unless somebody gives him a piece of paper which declares him to be a legitimate son like Aegon IV did.  The mess he created when he did that led to the Dance of the Dragons, also know as the Targaryen civil war.

Tywin also gave Ramsey Bolton the same thing as part of the deal with Roose for the Red Wedding.

Comment 17 Jul 2017

Man, things are really going to be complicated when Gendry returns.

*I saw CT's response after I posted this.  Gendry is alive and technically Robert's heir.  It won't matter though if Danny conquers the Seven Kingdoms and then marries her nephew Jon.

+1.  Maurice Clarett was one bad decision away from being killed the night he was arrested with a gun and body armor in his car.  He completely turned his life around after he sobered up.  He and Zeke need to have a sit down together.
