Michael Sam may not have found his way onto the field of an NFL game (yet), but he scored a major touchdown with this recent LAX interview.
He and fiancé Vito Cammisano arrived in Los Aneles and were promptly leeched onto by a TMZ cameraman. Long flights are bad enough — we can’t imagine having to be camera ready upon landing.
But instead of answering his annoying questions or just simply ignoring him, Michael starts tossing out Game of Thrones references left and right.
The best part is they all seem to fly over the interviewer’s head. In the end Michael chalks it up to the interviewer not understanding gay people’s “terminology.”
Other fun tidbits — Michael and Vito plan to wed in Westeros, Tyrion and Tywin Lannister are invited, and the happy couple is registered at Kings Landing. Oh, and hopefully Daenerys can get to Westeros soon. “It’s been, like, six books and she hasn’t been there.”
