Michael Sam was spotted at LAX airport by a TMZ cameraman who began peppering the NFL hopeful about the details of his engagement and wedding, so Sam gave the cameraman answers filled with Game of Thrones references.
What made the bit so fantastic is that the cameraman/interviewer is not familiar with the show, so he takes Sam at face value when he says he is hoping to get married in Westeros.
The cameraman asks if Westeros, the setting for the majority of the action in the popular television show and fantasy book series, is in Greece, causing Sam and fiancé Vito Cammisano to burst out laughing.
The joke continues with Sam saying Oprah will not be attending the nuptials, but Tyrion and Tywin Lannister will, a brave move considering how dangerous weddings get when a Lannister is involved.
