'Game of Thrones' final season has united Giants in different ways

SAN FRANCISCO -- Before the bottom of the ninth inning last Saturday, with the Giants trailing the Reds 5-4, an organization full of "Game of Thrones" watchers merged that passion with the new $10 million scoreboard.

The Giants have long made personalized comeback videos to show late in close games and on Saturday they put Giants and Reds logos over the faces of two key Thrones characters while showing the most important scene of the Battle of Winterfell. In the corner of the screen, Bran Stark sat in his wheelchair, wearing a Giants cap.

Many in the crowd cheered when the digitally altered scene was over, but in the dugout, players scrambled to look away.
