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.)

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
