MLB: Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, McCoven! I hope this Monday finds you in good spirits. Yesterday had a variety of things to be excited about. The Giants won, the Warriors won, the Sharks won in what I’m told was an extremely exciting, gut-wrenching and torturous fashion to force a Game 7. And we had the next episode in the final season of Game of Thrones.

We talked about this a little bit last week, but for the remainder of the series I’m going to start posting Game of Thrones threads. Game of Threads? Thread of Thrones? Either way, this is to allow those that watch a place to talk about it without having to use spoiler tags, and to help save those who haven’t watched it yet from seeing spoilers. And for those who don’t watch it at all, well, you don’t have to wade through a sea of black redaction boxes.

Some may find it annoying to treat one specific show the way we treat politics, by confining it to its own thread. However, this may be the biggest cultural phenomenon of the last decade, so I think it’s warranted to allow vigorous discussion, while keeping people spoiler free if they choose to do so.

Here is the link. Be warned that no part of this thread will be spoiler free. This week, I wrote it after the episode aired. I can start posting them before the episodes if you guys would prefer. Just let me know!

In conclusion, you can continue to feel free to talk about other sports, your lunch, work frustrations, or anything else you’d like to. But please humor us and make sure you take your Thrones takes to the Thrones thread. And help direct others there as well! Thanks, all!
