Chicago Cubs: I am the Mother of Dragons
Well, I guess that picture and headline spoils the surprise. Do I need to say anything more? Bryce Harper is the well-coiffed foreigner who is respected, feared, hated, desired and wields a ton of power. He also supposedly has an intimate relationship with someone already in the organization, but his loyalties and motives aren’t 100% meshing with Cubs’ fans.
Seen by some as a Cub-killer, a mercenary, a would-be king, not everyone wanted him to be King in Chicago. The cost was, unfortunately for many fans, too much to bear for the organization and city. The merging of his power fighting alongside the already powerful forces in Chicago would have been just what the maester ordered after a frightful offensive showing in the second half of 2018; however, the way Jason Heyward has been swinging the bat so far in 2019, maybe Cubs’ fans are happy Harper roosted himself and his dragons in the City of Brotherly Love.
Hopefully, his decision to fly to Philadelphia instead of the banks of Lake Michigan (or more likely, the organization’s desire not to spend the money on him) won’t lead to Harper hoisting some golden hardware high up in the sky while he is crowned and celebrated as king of South Street.
Because of her name, Daenerys Targaryen has known she was destined for greatness since birth. Her trials and tribulations at a young age made her seem like she was always destined for greatness, even in the bleakest of times. Now that she has come to Westeros and allied with the North, she seems even more popular, stronger, and passionate about her course of action. Of course, this all could become very weird in Season 8 when Dany and Jon realize they’re related (or maybe not since it was a thing with Targaryen’s anyhow).
As Cubs’ fans, and as Game of Thrones‘ fans, we are really just looking for a happy ending, whether that be in Chicago or Westeros, as well as a thawing from this seemingly endless, stagnant and cold winter of 2018-19.
Thanks for reading the third and final installment in the Game of Thrones series. If you haven’t read the first two, please do so as we await both the Cubs’ season and the return of Game of Thrones. The wait is finally over!
