Sunday, the New York Giants opened their season with a 20-19 win over the Cowboys in Dallas.
You could say their victory was fueled by Eli Manning's three touchdown passes, the return of wide receiver Victor Cruz and some key additions to their ailing defense.
The New York Giants and "Game of Thrones" are arguably my two favorite things on the planet -- other than my family, girlfriend and friends, of course -- so I was giddy like a schoolgirl after reading about McAdoo's unique inspirational methods.
You remember the Ramsay Bolton death scene, right? You know, the moment Ramsay's starved hounds turned on their master at the end of the "Battle of the Bastards," and we saw that Sansa Stark smirk that will forever haunt our dreams.
It was about being hungry. Just being the hungriest team in the NFL, in the NFC, all that.
Uh, mission achieved, coach. I think I'd be ready to run through a brick wall after watching that clip on repeat.
The Giants got the win and currently sit atop the standings in the NFC East, albeit by one game, so I'd say they should keep watching "Game of Thrones" all season long if they want to make it to the Super Bowl before Daenerys, Jon and the dragons reach King's Landing.
