The two best things in life are watching sports and Throning out. It is known.
Indeed, the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones on April 6 is nearly upon us, meaning it's time to cut the japes, strap on our half helms and return to the couch (godswood).
In honor of this most violent and sensuous occasion, I've taken it upon myself to combine the best of two worlds and recast GoT with athletes and figures from the realm of sports.
This is my personal all-star cast of knights, lords and hired swords from Westeros and beyond. These men and women were selected for their character traits and certain physical attributes, but mainly because they're perfect.
Theirs is the fury, the snow and the sword. They are the sports cast of Game of Thrones, and they know exactly when winter is coming.
