Random Bit of Awesomeness: Game of the Rings?

Hey Every body Rick here with a pretty cool bit of video with George R.R. Martin, author of the :A Song of Ice and Fire" series of books.  Game of Thrones is a wildly popular series on HBO and Martin has been on record to cite Lord of the Rings as a major influence on his books.  That said, when asked who would win in a fight, between the LOTR characters and the ASOIAF characters, Martin had some very interesting choices.  I can't say I agree with all of them but some of them he is pretty much dead on with my picks as well.  The pairings are below...

Aragon vs. Jaime Lannister
Smaug vs. Balerion
Saruman vs. Melisandre
Wargs vs. Direwolves
Ice vs. Glamdring
Frodo vs. Tyrion
Nazg├╗l vs. White Walkers
Cave Troll vs. Mag the Mighty
Gimli vs. The Mountain
Ned Stark vs. Boromir (Of course)

Enjoy the video and then chime in and tell us who you think would win!
