Arya Stark, And The Top 10 Catches Of All-Time

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR "GAME OF THRONES" SEASON 8 EPISODE 3.

DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN "THE BATTLE OF WINTERFELL."


THERE WILL ALSO BE AN "AVENGERS: ENDGAME" SPOILER BECAUSE WHY NOT?



Sunday, April 28th, 2019, will go down as one of the most epic moments I've ever witnessed in my life. When all hope was lost and The Night King was about to control Bran aka The Three-Eyed Raven and take over Winterfell and perhaps humanity itself, Arya Stark ascended to the heights from a great fantasy protagonist into one of the greatest protagonists of all-time when she dived onto The Unstoppable Night King.

The Night King turned and stopped her from stabbing him, but she dropped the dagger from one and hand and caught it on the other, proceeding to deliver the greatest example of deus ex machina in the history of recorded fiction when she stabbed that Night King Bitch and destroyed the Wight Walkers for all-time!

And remember Wight Walkers, Arya Stark's character is like 13 or something and she's like under five feet tall, so you have to live with that for eternity! Oh wait, that's right, you never lived!

Now let me cut to the chase in saying that the best part of that moment wasn't the stabbing, it was THE CATCH from one hand to the other.

With that, let's see that catch again alongside the greatest catches of all-time!

1. ARYA STARK

VENI. VIDI. VICI.

2. Dwight Clark's The Catch

Dwight Clark's game-winning catch in the 1981 NFC title game is one of the most iconic moments in NFL history and set the tone for the 49ers being the Team of the 80s.

3. Harry Potter catches the Elder Wand

"HARRY POTTER" SPOILERS TOO!

There's no gif that shows what happens after but in the final "Harry Potter" movie the title character catches the Elder wand, the most powerful wand ever made, to finally defeat Voldemort!

4. Willie Mays: The Catch

Babe Ruth is considered the greatest baseball player of all-time, but Willie Mays might be a close second, thanks in part to this signature play of his career.

5. Captain America is worthy!

Ok, I couldn't find an "Endgame" gif but stop reading if you didn't see the movie.

But in "Endgame," Captain America caught the iron hammer and became worthy!

6. The immaculate reception

The Pittsburgh Steelers had never won a playoff game from 1933 to 1972. After this Immaculate Reception that was featured on "This Is Us", they have six Super Bowls.

7. Ken Griffey Jr. catch

If you grew up in the 90s, Ken Griffey Jr. was the face of baseball because of plays like this.

8. David Tyree Helmet catch

The second perfect season in NFL history was denied because an obscure receiver kept the ball against his helmet.

9. Clutch Hockey Save

Hey, hockey players are sports stars too!

10. Philly Special

The last time I gasped so many times at an event was Super Bowl 52, and this play was the most breath-taking of all. (Though we all know the biggest play of the game was Brandon Graham's strip sack that gave me an out of body experience.)

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

Presents

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
