Aaron Rodgers Shares His Favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ Fan Theories
Aaron Rodgers still has a minute or two of downtime before his life gets REALLY hectic, so he took an opportunity to go on a podcast from The Ringer and share some Game of Thrones hypotheses with the world.
Here’s the big theory (that’s not necessarily “his,” but whatever):
“I think that Jon Snow, Daenerys, and the Hand of the Queen [Tyrion Lannister] — I think they are all related. Three dragons, three riders, three siblings,” Rodgers says. “We know from Bran, the Three-Eyed Raven, that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow’s father. The Mad King might have been his father, might have been him — and that would make Daenerys and Jon brother and sister. And then Tyrion, we don’t know who his mother is, who Tywin slept with. I think there’s some sort of relationship. At least Jon Snow and Daenerys are going to be working together, and they are mining the dragon glass.”
He said that he takes necessary precautions to stay off social media and away from chatty teammates if he’s not able to watch the show on Sunday nights. He’s not above shutting up a teammate who’s talking freely about the show, either:
In addition to preemptively warding off fans, the quarterback has to protect himself from the guys who normally protect him. On Sunday night, tackle Bryan Bulaga approached Rodgers near the dorms for training camp.
“I said, ‘It was amazing!’ and he said, ‘I don’t even want to hear any reactions!’” Bulaga says. “It’s not my fault that you don’t watch it live. That is not my problem.”
“I said, ‘Stop, stop, stop, I’m behind,’” Rodgers says. “Monday morning, a couple of guys are going, ‘Well …’ and you’re going, ‘Stop stop stop.’”
He’s also been on the Game of Thrones Reddit pages, so…yeah. So, yeah, the guy’s a big GoT fan.
