Baseball team Texas Rangers celebrate HBO’s Game of Thrones

Published

on

Fantasy epic Game of Thrones has become a pop culture icon due to its massive popularity in the past decade. It is a no brainer that the hugely famed series finds its way into being mentioned on various occasions. From politics to entertainment to sports, the show has often been compared with real-life situations. On Tuesday night, the Texas Rangers celebrated HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The Game of Thrones-themed night also featured a Westeros-inspired Willie Calhoun bobblehead. However, the Rangers were heavily criticized for celebrating Game of Thrones but not Pride Month. With June being Pride Month, most Major League Baseball teams are celebrating with different versions of Pride Day. The Rangers are the only Major League Baseball team that has not had some sort of Pride Day since 2003.

When the Dallas Morning News had a story about the Rangers not celebrating with a Pride Day. The team declined to speak with the paper about their stance on such a day or their possible work with the LGBTQ community.

According to The Advocate, an LGBT magazine, the Rangers had a promotion in 2003 where it invited various LGBT groups to the game. But it wasn’t an official Pride Day promotion. The game still drew anti-gay protesters, though.

While some Game of Thrones stars have actively stated to be gender-fluid, it comes as a big surprise that Rangers would do so little in that direction. What do you think of this issue? Talk to us in the comments below!

Well, as we all know already, American politics is no stranger to being the butt of jokes, and the only other place with politics that are as messed up, is Westeros. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when analogies are often made between the two. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday suggested that there were more leaks under former President Trump than there are now. It was due to infighting among administration officials during the previous four years, comparing it to Game of Thrones.

There’s not a lot of ‘Game of Thrones’ drama here, which feels like it may be a bit of … a shift from the last four years,” Psaki said when asked about the lack of leaks to the media at a conference hosted by the Financial Times.

Psaki said many White House staffers have a long history of working with Biden, and that’s created a different kind of atmosphere in the West Wing. “The culture of this White House is very much a put your head down. Get to work, do your thing, be a part of the team,” she said.

He actually enjoys that back and forth and takes questions, I think. More than almost most presidents in modern history. In terms of the frequency of how often he takes questions from reporters,” she said, noting that Biden answered questions shouted by reporters at least 77 times in his first 100 days in office, according to a presidential historian.

“I think this has been a little bungled out there, [me] walking out the door on day 365,” Psaki concluded. “I have flexibility and can stay longer and likely will stay longer.”

What do you think of Psaki’s statement? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones remains the most successful show to have ever filmed on television. It set the bar for television filming really high, with record viewership and budget. The fantasy series still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won. The cast of the show is highly decorated as well. Jonathan Pryce has been awarded knighthood for his services to drama and charity. The Game Of Thrones star has been recognised for his acting talents and charity work in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

The 74-year-old has said that the arts show ‘the importance of debate and tolerance’ as he received his honour. In a statement, he explained: “That the UK continues to honour those that work in the arts. Acknowledges the great contribution artists make to the way we live our lives.”

“When I began work at the Liverpool Everyman under Alan Dosser in 1972, I saw theatre as an implement of change – to entertain and to inform. The arts remind people to be kinder, more understanding, questioning and to be more empathetic. ‘It shows people the importance of debate and tolerance. These last few divisive years have shown the need for that more than ever.”

He added: “After almost 50 years as an actor I am proud to think that the work and ideals that I have shared with my friends and colleagues is being honoured in this way.”

Last year, Pryce won the BAFTA Cymru award. Congratulate the veteran actor on his great achievement in the comments below!

There were many side characters on Game of Thrones, but few were as funny as Jerome Flynn’s Bronn. The actor once joked about how he improvised on set by grabbing Daniel Portman’s (Pod) crotch in a scene. Everyone’s favourite sellsword was kind of forgotten in the final season. Jerome Flynn, however, has joined the campaigners taking legal action against the UK government to ban factory farming.

The Game of Thrones star is an ambassador for Scrap Factory Farming – led by renowned human rights lawyer Michael Mansfield QC. Non-profit Humane Being is behind the campaign – which is crowdfunding the £60,000 needed for the judicial review of government policy. It is an entirely volunteer-run initiative that calls for an end of intensive farming methods to prevent further pandemics.

In a statement sent to PBN, Flynn said: “It is starkly clear to me that there cannot be a future for mankind in a world where factory farms still exist.

“This is our time now to put things right…”

Last year, lawyers acting for Humane Being wrote to the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). It queried the government’s plans regarding factory farming and related threats to human health.

However, the organization says Defra’s response ‘played down’ the issues linked to factory farming. Now, the legal team has filed the court action and papers have been served to Defra.

What do you think of Jerome’s initiative? Tell us in the comments below!
