Mets’ Syndergaard has cameo on ‘Game of Thrones’ (SPOILERS)

Leave a comment

The fourth episode in the Game of Thrones‘ seventh season, “The Spoils of War,” will undoubtedly have people talking around the water cooler for days.

Not only did it feature a long-awaited Stark reunion in Winterfell, Jon and Dany cave chemistry … DRAGONS … some light humor from Davos, Arya vs. Brienne and the closing battle between the Dothraki and Lannisters (highlighted by you guessed it, DRAGONS) it also featured a cameo from Noah Syndergaard.

The Mets pitcher, who confirmed his appearance on the hit HBO show in an interview with Sports Illustrated back in April, put his arm to good use as a Lannister soldier fighting against the oncoming Dothraki army. It’s OK if you were distracted by the dragon and missed Syndergaard’s cameo, but it was epic.

The pitcher, also known as Thor, seemed all too happy to put down Mjolnir in favor of a spear.

The odds may have been stacked against the Lannisters as the episode came to a close, but I can assure you Mr. Met will sleep with one eye open after catching this week’s installment.

Happy Birthday Bobby Bonilla! (Yes he’s still getting paid)

Happy Birthday, Bobby Bonilla!

This is your semi-annual reminder (the other being July 1, Bobby Bonilla Day)  that Bobby Bonilla continues to have one of the best contracts going (or worst, depending on your perspective)

In case you’re out of the loop, we made a handy video explaining why Bonilla gets 1.19 Million every July from the New York Mets.

Bonilla’s contract is the birthday gift that keeps on giving…until 2035.
