In a twist worthy of A Song of Ice and Fire itself, Game of Thrones’ creator George R.R. Martin threw out the first pitch in a minor league baseball game. At a Albuquerque Isotopes game this past weekend, Martin donned his best set of suspenders and a New York Mets cap for baseball’s highest honor — probably even higher than being Hand of the King. The celebrated author was announced to the iconic GoT theme song while his title card read author/screenwriter. (They seem to have forgotten his roles as life ruiner and worst wedding planner in history.) We’re not sure how good Martin’s pitch was, but it couldn’t have been worse than 50 cent’s abysmal effort.
