Since I missed the entry for the Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge, I’m going to play Westeros Madness instead. Thanks to westerosmadness.tumblr.com, we can pit Tyrion Lannister (no. 1 seed, naturally) against his father, Tywin (no. 8, though no underdog here) in a true Game of Thrones. And I bet no. 5-seed Samwell Tarly won’t be able to talk his way past the bracket’s scrappiest grandma, no. 4-seed Olenna Tyrell. What about the battle of the would-be queens, Margaery Tyrell (no. 4) v. Sansa Stark (no. 5)? Margaery’s devious, but Sansa has enough suppressed angst to take down a dragon.
Speaking of dragons: Why is Drogon only a no. 5 seed?! Let’s discuss.
The new season of Game of Thrones premieres April 6 on HBO. March Madness is going on now, I guess.
