5 Ninja Warrior runs to watch if you’re trying to recover from ‘Game of Thrones’

Don’t deny us our feelings.

Alex Menendez/NBC

Hi. I love American Ninja Warrior. But I’m also a whole person. I have other interests, like HBO’s “Game of Thrones”. Which means, like millions of others, I am going through some FEELINGS today and I’ve decided to work through them with Ninja Warrior clips.

Because when GOT is gone in two weeks, we’ll still have Ninja Warrior and that is a comforting thought.

So, some ground rules first. I tried to avoid any spoilers here, but if you haven’t watched the episode why are you even clicking on a GOT-related article? Seriously. Just don’t do it.

Next, I don’t wanna talk about GOT opinions with you. I have feelings. I’m entitled to them. Don’t @ me, as the kids say these days. Let’s just sit back and enjoy some great American Ninja Warrior clips to soothe whatever might be ailing us these days...

1.) Because sometimes we just want to see things go well for a reptile. Just once.

2.) Jesse Labreck slapping the buzzer on Stage Two with her now fiancé Chris DiGangi cheering her on because not all romance has to end in tears and gut-wrenching heartbreak, GOT.

3.) Marshmello on the course in Vegas simply because the get-up looks kind of like a ghost and... Ghost...

4.) Jamie Rahn losing his shoe and still beating the clock because sometimes when it looks like everything is going to go wrong, you’re NOT being set up for everything to go horribly, irreversibly wrong.

5.) Jessie Graff becoming the first woman to defeat Stage One because once in a while we just GET WHAT WE WANT AS VIEWERS.

There. We feel a little bit better. What Ninja Warrior run always cheers up your day? Share in the comments below!
