Circling the Wagons: Game of Thrones Series Finale & Buffalo Bills Part 1

In this episode, we discuss the culturally significant series Game of Thrones, that just ended this past week. We talk about the series itself, whether we enjoyed the ending or not, and other series finales from shows with cult followings that either pleased or disappointed its fans.

**WARNING: There are spoilers to Game of Thrones (and the Sopranos, How I Met Your Mother, and The Office)**

Then we discuss a couple of parallels between the characters and events in Game of Thrones that directly link to a character or event in the Buffalo Bills (currently, or in history). Who Bills player/personality reminds you of Ned Stark? What about Daenerys' ending to the series? What event in Bills history reminds you of that?

Thanks to Nick from The Torrent Podcast (@TheTorrentPod) for coming on and talking Game of Thrones with us! Stay tuned for next week when all we spend the entire episode delving and analyzing different parallels between the show's characters and Bills players (past & present), front office personnel, owners, and historical events. Go Bills!

We recap the Buffalo Bills' loss to the New England Patriots, 24-17, thus solidifying the Patriots' win of the AFC East division. Josh Allen overthrows plenty of WRs, the defense and Leslie Frazier get out-coached, will Tom Brady ever be called for intentional grounding, why couldn't the Bills stop Julian Edelman, the refs played a factor (again) in this game, & much more! We also discuss the important question-- should the Bills sit all of their starters in Week 17? We announce the winner of the signed Tremaine Edmunds jersey, announce the new giveaway, and we discuss our general thoughts on the game, stats of the game, plays of the game (Sweet Sassy Molassy!), who goes on our Wall of Fame and who goes on the Wall of Shame (and turn to Twitter for some great reaction from our followers)...
