Direwolves On Staten Island

The boys of summer better take heed -- winter is coming to Staten Island on August 8. And where there is winter, there are direwolves.

So I'm headed east the first week of August... for a wedding, yes, and no, that's private, so you don't get to hear any more about it... but I am going to see my editors and publishers and agents while I am in town, and do some other fun stuff... including a ball game.

That's the night the Staten Island Direwolves will be playing the Lannister Lions.



Normally the home team is the Staten Island Yankees... but for one night only, they are changing their name to the Staten Island Direwolves, and will be wearing special jerseys. The visitors, normally the Hudson Valley Renegades, will be clad in gold and red jerseys emblazoned with the Lion of Lannister. So it will be Winterfell v. Casterly Rock once more.

The first 2500 attendees that night will get free baseball caps with the Direwolf logo (above). Also, we will be having a special fund-raising lottery on behalf of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, and the winners will take home the actual Stark and Lannister game jerseys worn by the players.



I will be signing books for 400 lucky fans as well -- only 400, the line will be capped, so get there EARLY if you want a book signed -- and the good folks from Wild Spirit will also be on hand, with one of their wolves.

For more details, check out the team website at http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t586

If you're a baseball fan... or a Stark supporter... do drop by, and root, root, root for the home team. If the Direwolves lose, I may have to kill another Stark.

No!
I know this is probably a joke (I really hope so) but if Sansa dies, I will probably have a heart attack.

Sports
I've been wondering, are there are any recreational sports in Westeros? I suppose tourneys, maybe? How do the people pass their time when not plotting to kill each other?

Re: Sports
Hunting and falconry were considered sport. Riding and the sword needed constant training and would occupy a good deal of time. There are books and music, too, and games like cyvasse. Needlework for girls not named Arya. There was a world before the internet; I'm old enough to remember it. *grin*

Please let the remaining Starks live a bit longer!
The Starks are getting rather scarce. Please don't kill them off over a baseball game! Let Tyrion torment Cersei instead!

Baseball
The only logical thing to do is to ambush the other team and make sure they can't play the game so the Direwolves win and all the Starks are safe. (Starks safe? HAR!)

Kill another Stark! Ah! That is troubling, Sir. I have been wondering as of late if turtles are your favorite animal? I notice you wear them a lot. Also, is there ever going to be a House in Westeros that has a Goose for its Sigil? One can only hope, I do love geese! :)

Direwolves vs lions
This is really cool, and the jerseys are amazing. wish I lived in New York I would definitely attend to represent the Starks. They have a double A team here In little rock it would be cool if we could maybe get dragons vs stags! We all know that in Football the Cowboys are the Starks and winter will come when we lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy next season!!! Can't remember but someone told me you were a Giants fan? Say it ain't so King George! Please tell me you aren't a Giants fan and somebody make sure the lannisters lose we can ill afford to lose any more Starks. How about if the Direwolves win you bring my favorite Character back to life? Eddard Stark!!!!

Go Wolves!!!
Let's hope you don't have to kill another Stark. You are starting to run out of them!

So Team Stark IS your favorite!
I hate the Lannisters, too, except for Tyrion! All I have EVER hoped for is that Arya makes it through to the end! Fingers crossed - and oh how I wish I had a chance at one of those shirts! Have fun and be "safe"!
