Game of Thrones Actor To Blow Horn Before Sunday’s Vikings-Packers Game
It’s a big weekend for Minnesota football fans, as the Vikings host the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium. Unfortunately for the Purple, starting quarterback Sam Bradford is out once again with a lingering knee injury, so it’ll be up to the Vikings stout defense to save the day when Aaron Rodgers and company come to town.
Luckily for the Vikings, they’ll have someone cheering them on before the game, and he might actually be bigger than any player on the field.
If you watch Game of Thrones, you’ll likely recognize Thor Bjornsson when he sounds the team’s trademark gjallarhorn this Sunday. Bjornsson is a 6’7” giant who plays The Mountain in the hit HBO. He also really looks like a Viking and/or a Norse god, so this is kind of a perfect fit. Also, his first name is Thor. Good Lord. Attending fans will no doubt be relieved to have The Mountain in-house just in case any White Walkers show up.
That’s pretty cool, no? Wait, does he know how to play quarterback, too?
