No pressure, Texans and Packers

An author known for routinely killing his most popular characters could have dire wishes for Houston, depending on who makes it into the Super Bowl.
George R.R. Martin, the author behind the “Game of Thrones” books and hit HBO show, said he’s rooting for “Whoever Plays the Cowboys and Whoever Plays the Patriots” on his LiveJournal Monday. He added, “And if we wind up with a Cowboy/Patriots Super Bowl, I will be rooting for A Giant Asteroid Strikes Houston.”

Martin is a self-professed Giants fan and attributed the team’s loss to the Packers as, “For whatever reason, the Packer punter had a much better day, so much so that the giants seemed to lose twenty yards of field position with every exchange. In the second half, Eli was repeatedly starting from inside his ten, Rodgers from midfield.”
While it’s great that Martin is a football fan, everyone keeps asking when his next book is coming out. The author claims that it may come out this year but notes “I thought the same thing last year.”

Who knows, it could be the year of miracles. The Texans could make the Super Bowl and Martin’s next book, “The Winds of Winter,” may finally be published.
As for the TV show, the new season is set to come out this year, perhaps during the summer.
