    Ahm. Ok. Canadian ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls GOOD NEWS!!! For those of you who did not have the chance to see Season One of “Game Of Thrones”, either by subscribing to HBOCanada, DVD/Blue-ray or digital download…Canadian specialty channel Showcase will air the entire first season starting Friday February 15th . Showcase is not a premium tv channel and it does not require a separate subscription. It is offered through most cable packages either by Bell, Rogers, Shaw etc. For more details go to:

    showcase.ca

    The downside, seeing GOT with commercials, the upside, the episodes will be broadcast uncut and uncensored.

    Episode One “Winter Is Coming” airs Friday February 15th at 10pm with an encore presentation at 1:30am.

    Enjoy!

    *very* important to just just one nation, i guess this gives the US a little individuality :)

    this comic was really cute,

    Dang.

    Sounds yummy. My offering for today’s party is a mixture of greens, soured cream and spices served in a trencher of bread. (Spinach dip)

    I don’t really care about the game, I’m rooting for the commercials. But it is an excuse to party!

    Also, could it be that there will be a trailer on the SB today ? The HBO Iron Throne is set up with the ESPN area in New Orleans … Hopefully, that means something for us fans!

    KG,

    I believe those are essential to the malting of those beverages featured on so many of the expensive commercials. :p

    This is really funny! Would love to see more GoT influence in SB rituals:

    ‘By winter packtrain, painted a defiant bright red, smart servants decked in green and shining silver buttons sitting straight at the reigns pulled in the chafing steeds, whose black manes and white fetlocks dangled wild and matted with sweat, their black and silver harness jangling with each insistant step. The oaken chests strapped atop were guarded by a brace of lithe, spotted white hounds, the sigil and pride of House Busch. And within were they, golden ales, runny and thin, yet frothing in cool, dark bottles and ringed by colorful paper to distinguish their singular designation. Thus arrived the King of Beers.’

    You’re as lame as the Americans who diss soccer as a boring sport. If you don’t like it fine, I’m not much of a fan myself, but don’t be a dick about it.

    And the cartoon was awesome.

    Well, to reduce the tension (that I begin, but you should understand that we don’t give a damn about this sport), I ask to the fellow readers who have also read the books if they know the reference to NFL in A Dance with Dragons (spoilers, of course)

    My give-a-damn meter is also pretty low in regards to your not giving a damn about Americans (and GRRM, specifically) giving a damn about the Super Bowl. So, hooray, we all have opinions! Congratulations to us.

    Seriously? You guys are really going to fight over all this shit? For all of your information, the date for the super bowl is decided more than a year in advance, if not more. So that means that the Super Bowl forty something, or whatever it is, was decided to be today before season three was even green lighted. So fuck your shitty arguments and stop ripping on an American tradition that doesn’t apply to you. Whoopty doo! You didn’t get your trailer! Fuck off and just wait like everyone else. I’m just as anxious as everyone for a trailer but I don’t resort to bashing other people’s countries when I don’t get what I want. Keep your football and we’ll keep ours. Thank you

    Far more importantly… we are down to LESS than 8 weeks to go until A STORM OF SWORDS is on my 55″ TV screen in Hi-Def.

    Let’s repeat that for those who are far too blase about it: A STORM OF SWORDS is coming to our screens in less than two months. I don’t know about you guys, but before the Pilot was ever shown, most of us here were just hoping the thing would get greenlit and would last long enough for us to see this moment. Well it’s going to happen — with ratings to spare — it would seem.

    That is pretty sensational stuff.

    I love watching a beautiful game of soccer(football), but the level of acting is really quite embarrassing. Players who feign injuries just to delay the game or draw penalties should be penalized more harshly.

    axia777,

    Both I suppose. To each his own and what not. I don’t particularly like some sports as well, but I don’t see the Internet as the means for me to vent and cram my opinions down the throats of others. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s fine to be mad at a team. No one likes every team because let’s face it, tons of teams are full of hot head assholes, not just in football. So guys, play nice because I don’t go online to listen to a bunch of people act like six year olds and even some six year olds know better.

    Posted February 4, 2013 at 5:19 pm | Permalink

    I’m an American, and I hate football. It’s boring and dumb IMO, but so is soccer, baseball, cricket, quidditch and NASCAR (Stock car racing wouldn’t be so bad if the courses were complicated like ramps, jumps, obstacles, right turns and they didn’t go as long, but I still wouldn’t watch it because it’s a giant waste of fuel).

    Anyway the point is, GRRM likes football. That comic could be used with many a sports events. We have such feasting events for good fight cards. The dialogue could be changed for myself to “Sonnen is coming” (he’s goina get his ass kicked by Jones but that’s beside the point.)
    The comic is good because the last frame parallels eddard stark sitting the iron throne on the commonly seen GoT poster with GRRM using his weapon of choice Remote.

    Lampreys only superficially resemble eels, as they are jawless fish, whereas eels are ray-finned bony fish, like the vast majority of modern fish species. A capon is a castrated rooster.
