Game of Thrones is back and is a BIG deal. I’m the only person on Earth who isn’t obsessed with the show, but that won’t stop us from talking about it in a Vikings capacity for SEO purposes! Eric Thompson (@eric_j_thompson) of The Daily Norseman rejoins the podcast to talk some GoT, Minnesota Vikings draft, and his latest piece casting members of the Purple as characters from the George R.R. Martin masterpiece.

"With those skinny knees, Teddy's probably susceptible to bilateral weakness too."

Your bracket is toast, time to get back to Vikings football! Tom Schreier (@tschreier3) of Cold Omaha and 105 The Ticket joins the show to talk about the latest Minnesota Vikings news, what big things are going down at the Twin Cities newest sports radio station on the rise, as well as Tom’s path in the world of sports journalism at the co-founding of CO.

The Vikings continue to show that they’re truly a year round spectacle as there’s always news/drama brewing as we saw last week with Mike Wallace & the Pounceys, the latest stare-down between Spielman and Adrian’s camp, as well as Adrian birthday camel. Because why not. If AP doesn’t want to be a Viking, at least he can be Aladdin.
