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.

Living across the pond in UK, baseball hasn't ever been much of a big thing for us...but gonna root like mad for the Staten Island Direwolves as I'm not sure I can suffer the heartbreak of another Stark dying! Hope it's a good night for you =)

This is it!
You should change the ending in the books depending on who wins the game ;)

Georgie Porgie puddin n' pie, killed more Starks, made everyone cry.

Very cool uniforms, I'll be trying to find those baseball jerseys for sale after the lottery.


What a fantastic promotion/idea for a great charity, the Westeros wolf pack, featuring two of my favorite things, baseball and Asoiaf. Dammit, I'd love to be able to attend. Hopefully there will be some pics/videos show up online.

Looks like a pretty sweet fundraiser. Now, if only my Milwaukee Bucks would change their names to the Baratheon Stags..

I just did my part to protect the surviving Starks by buying a ticket. Can't wait, this is going to be awesome!

Twow
Not sure if you can answer this or not but I assume that at this meeting with your publishers, editors and agents that the Winds of Winter will be talked about?

Thank you!

Re: Twow
Oh, I imagine so. It comes up from time to time, can't think why.

If another Stark dies they will be rarer than the Targaryens... :(
If they win may a Lannister (not Tyrion) be killed?

can't wait!!!
Can't wait.. I live in Staten Island, will definitely be there. Are all fans going to be able to have the chance to get a book signed?? Would be cool if the bats had cross guards and were shaped like swords, and they wore helms instead of helmets.

I hope this wedding is a dull affair, if you know what I mean.
