natalie-dormer-gq14-02Well, if you were looking for something to watch on Sunday night, you probably did fairly well for yourself. Between Game of Thrones and WrestleMania 30, it was a pretty backed night of TV. While we don’t have any GoT links, there are WrestleMania ones today.

So let’s kickoff this post with Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer.

One last baseball link but it’s the most important. Where are the best stadia for craft beer? Sadly only Major League parks. (The Daily Meal)

Did Arsenio Hall change late night TV with his original show? He and the folks at Esquire think so. I think he did better with Martial Law. That show was fucking awesome. (Esquire)
