Noah Syndergaard uses ‘Game of Thrones’ meme to address injury (vid)


The New York Mets are in relative disarray at the moment, mainly stemming from reported injuries to Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz, with both starters apparently dealing with bone spurs in their pitching elbows.

Syndergaard has been downright defiant over the reports concerning the nature of his injury, denying he has bone spurs in his elbow after his worst start of the season in a 11-4 loss to the Washington Nationals, an outing during which he lasted only three innings while giving up five earned runs on seven hits and three walks.

Despite the pitcher’s denials, the Mets went ahead and confirmed Syndergaard has bone spurs, effectively ending the debate.

But that hasn’t stopped Syndergaard from feeling entirely exasperated over the entire situation, something he made all too clear by taking to Twitter to post a “Game of Thrones” meme to express his frustrations.

(NOTE: The following content contains spoilers from the Season 6 finale of “Game of Thrones” that aired on Sunday. If a reader hasn’t yet watched the episode but plans to in the future, it’s probably best not to continue. You’ve been warned.)

Syndergaard used a disturbing scene from the finale to articulate how he feels about things.

And for one last time, spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned. Again.

Geez Louise, man. In other words, Valar Morghulis, Noah Syndergaard.

Yep, that about says it all, in far-too-grave terms, to say the least. Still, kudos to Syndergaard for being on top of his current pop culture knowledge. Bravo.
