With the Game of Thrones Season Eight Premiere today, we picked which Washington Nationals we would want in our small council meetings.
Please Note: Within this post are potential spoilers for Game of Thrones.
With the Washington Nationals back in action, summer is approaching. But on our television screens, winter is coming as HBO’s hit show, Game of Thrones, premieres its eighth and final season tonight.
Game of Thrones is arguably the best television show in the history of the world, and its season eight premiere has been anticipated for nearly two years.
In its first season, premiering in April of 2011, we were introduced to Kings Landing, including King Robert Baratheon and the members of his small council: Jon Arryn/Eddard Stark, Ser Barristan Selmy, Grand Maester Pycelle, Lord Varys, and Lord Petyr Baelish (also known as Littlefinger).
The primary positions on the small council are as follows:
- The Hand of the King/Queen
- Lord Commander of the Kings/Queensguard
- The Grand Maester
- The Master of Whisperers
- The Master of Coin
With the final season on everyone’s minds, and the 2019 baseball season starting to hit its stride, we thought to ourselves: “Which Nationals would make good small council members?”
Our goal was to only select players from the 2019 Nationals active roster. However, some players from the Nationals past might rise from the “dead” and make their way onto our small council.
Once again, we will repeat our spoiler warning. If you haven’t watched Game of Thrones, what are you doing? You only have a few more hours before season eight starts! Get on it!
Ok, here we go.
