SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The creator of "Game of Thrones" says he once wrote a TV pilot with a plot focused on an alien landing at the Super Bowl.

George R.R. Martin is now a famous author who has the clout to go to the Super Bowl.

Martin attended the Rolling Stone party on the eve of the Super Bowl and plans to attend the game Sunday, his first ever trip to the big game.

He is rooting for the Seattle Seahawks because "the opposing team is the evil Patriots. The deflaters, the spygate-rs."

Martin grew up in New York and is no fan of the team that is the Jets archrival and faced the Giants twice in the Super Bowl.

He still hopes that his alien Super Bowl idea sees the light of day as he plans to make the concept into a graphic novel.
