Colts flirted with signing ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones


If you’re a fan of the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” then you’re familiar with the character Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane – quite an imposing figure who was seen Sunday night practicing his killing moves on a handful of poor peasants, and was also seen chopping the head off a horse earlier in the series.


His real name is Hafthor Bjornsson, a 6-foot-9, 419-pound competitive weightlifter in his native Iceland. Colts owner Jim Irsay dropped his name (sort of) in a 2013 Tweet.
