PMS 2.0 064 – John Daly, Dan Orlovsky, Tiger’s Back, & The NFL Never Sleeps

On today’s show, Pat and the guys break down one of the most memorable Sunday’s in recent memory as they look back on Tiger Woods winning his 5th Green Jacket at the Masters and discuss his greatness, how much more he has in the tank, and why things were different this time around when they’ve looked promising before. To chat a little bit more about Tiger, Pat welcomes on friend of the show, 2X Major Champion, and one of the most electric human beings to ever walk the planet, John Daly. They chat about his week in Augusta at Hooters and how it differed from last year, how Little John has been performing on the course as of late, what he thought about Tiger winning his 5th Green Jacket and whether or not he’s going to make a run at Jack Nicklaus’ major record, and if there are any young players right now that can challenge the greatness of Tiger’s career (22:47-27:47). Pat and the guys also welcome recurring guest, regular panelist on “Get Up,” and 11 year NFL veteran, Dan Orlovsky, to chat about Russell Wilson giving the Seahawks a hard deadline for a new extension, and whether or not he could end up playing QB for the Giants. They also chat about which coaches from the Sean McVay mold will have successful season or if he is an anomaly, if Joe Flacco will resurrect his career in Denver, and Dan gives out a couple of his sleeper picks for the NFC and AFC next year (38:41-50:20). To close out the show, the guys discuss the premiere of Game of Thrones and try to convince Pat that getting on board with the show is worth his time, and Pat announces the upcoming live podcast tour which has 6 dates in 6 different cities this summer. It’s a fun one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

BREAKING: Game Of Thrones Is Coming Back In April 2019

Holy. Fucking. Shit. HBO dropping a Hiroshima sized A-bomb this morning about the final season of Thrones. No new footage released, but good God that trailer is sending me from six to midnight. Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All #ForTheThrone. What a tagline. 

Unfortunately, I think this gives us a hint that the bodies are going to pile up big time in the final stretch run here. Damn near everyone is going to die. I know it, you know it, the world knows it. So many storylines that need to be wrapped up in only six episodes… When do Dany and Jon realize they’re related? How many more times will Jaime and Cersei boink? What is Arya’s endgame? Who is going to end up on the Iron Throne– if anyone? Is Jon related to the Night King? How much carnage are we going to get in this final battle? Just thinking about all this shit is going to make my head explode.

I wasn’t expecting Thrones until mid-June if not July, so this is essentially Christmas coming early, and I feel like a ten year old waiting on Santa’s fat ass to slide down the chimney. It’s bittersweet that Thrones is coming to an end, but folks, we are in for one hell of a ride. All new beginnings come from some other beginnings end.

Also, if you want to watch every large scale battle from Thrones, you can do so here. Tweet me and let me know what you guys are looking forward to most as Thrones comes to a close.

Game Of Thrones Releases First Set Photo From Final Season

https://twitter.com/EW/status/1057969459166695424

EW – Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow return on this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly.

In the latest issue, we go behind the scenes of Game of Thrones, the most secretive series on television, for the HBO epic’s final season.

From an emotional table read to staging the show’s biggest battle yet to a preview of the season 8’s mysterious storyline, the new issue is an exclusive first look at the show’s six remaining episodes from the set in Northern Ireland.

Oh boy… here we go. Not a lot to take from this photo that is less set photo and more magazine cover photo, but it feels good to have Thrones be a topic of conversation again. Now typically, I avoid Thrones spoilers like the plague. I’ve invested countless hours and seven years of my life into this show, and I’ll be damned if some asswipe flying a drone over some shooting location in Spain is going to unravel the whole thing for me. If I figure out who takes control of the Iron Throne before this final season premieres, you might as well scrap me off the pavement like this guy

What really excites me, is this very very large set piece battle that’s being described as the biggest in the show’s history. They say that every year, and astonishingly, have actually improved on every major battle sequence over the last six and a half seasons.

Exhibit A: The Battle of Blackwater

Exhibit B: The Wildlings attack on Castle Black

Exhibit C: Hardhome

Exhibit D: The Battle of the Bastards

Exhibit E: The Loot Train Battle

Exhibit F: The Frozen Lake Battle 

Jesus. Christ. If those don’t get the blood pumping, I don’t know what will. I can’t even imagine the type of set piece we’re going to get with the inevitable battle of everyone left vs. the White Walkers. We’re talking Starks, Dothraki, Lannisters, Daenerys and dragons, Men of the Night’s Watch, anyone left with a pulse.

Unfortunately, Thrones is still like 7 months away, and shit is bound to leak as we get closer to the season premiere, but HBO has shown that they’re willing to draw and quarter anyone floating spoilers out there. Either way, we’re in for one helluva time as one of the greatest television programs of all-time draws to a close.

Valar Morghulis.
