Friday Round-Up: Game Of Thrones Season Premiere Stirs Excitement For Seahawks Players

A few Seahawks players have been expressing their excitement on Twitter for the new season of Game of Thrones to premiere on April 14.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Friday, April 12 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Winter Is Coming… Wait, Isn't It Spring?

It's been well over a year (August 27, 2017, to be exact) since we were all in awe from the season seven finale of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones. The world has been waiting for the eighth and final season to come out, including a handful of players on the Seahawks roster.

The wait is soon to be over for Thrones fans such as long snapper Tyler Ott, tight end Will Dissly, and offensive tackle Duane Brown. The premiere of season eight airs this Sunday, April 14, at 6 PM PT on HBO. Our players have been consistently expressing their excitement throughout the past few weeks as they await the ultimate fate of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and the rest of the Westerosi.

Many folks out there have been urged to hop onto the bandwagon and catch up with the series to get on pace with the soon-to-be-released season eight. There's a stat out there in the world that it would take approximately two days, 15 hours, and 30 minutes to watch all seven seasons. That being said, if you want to get up to speed, you may have to start now. Like, right now (and potentially watch a few episodes on double-speed).

The series has received 47 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2015, 2016, and 2018. There's clearly a reason that the show has such a big following and why so many of our players follow it. If you're a fan or you just want to have something to talk about if you ever run into some of our players, be sure to tune in on HBO.
