... that Ser Patrek of King's Mountain is a reference to Patrick St. Denis, who runs a fantasy website called Pat's Fantasy Hotlist, and was included because George R. R. Martin lost a bet to Patrick? Patrick is a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, while Martin is a fan of the New York Giants. The bet was that, if Martin lost, he would have to kill Patrick horribly in the book.[1] Ser Patrek's coat of arms is described as looking somewhat like the logo of the Dallas Cowboy,. and Patrek is eventually killed by Wun Wun, a giant, in A Dance with Dragons.
