Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson tells Dan Patrick how he'd prefer to die on 'Game of Thrones'

BY Fox Sports • June 15, 2015

In case you haven't heard, Angels pitcher CJ Wilson is a major fan of the show 'Game of Thrones.'

So much so that, before his victorious outing vs. Oakland on Saturday, Wilson was 'on edge' after having watched the last episode before Sunday's season finale.

Wilson told The Dan Patrick Show on Monday that he and his wife have a deal that they only watch 'GoT' when they are together ... but the pitcher made an exception on Saturday.

"It was killing me ... I had to watch it," Wilson said. "I got up and walked away (at one point) ... I can't stand another person you root for (on the show) getting killed."

When asked if he would prefer to be an All-Star Game pitcher, or have a major role in 'GoT', Wilson didn't need much time to answer. With his 4-5 record and 3.60 ERA so far in 2015, Wilson knows he won't be headed to Cincinnati in July for the ASG.

"I've already pitched in an All-Star Game (2011-12 with the Rangers)," Wilson said. "Having a large role in GOT, I'd have to be cool with nudity, getting killed ... I don't think full frontals (would be OK) with Arte Moreno ... I don't think he'd be into that."

On how he would die in the show: "The only real baller way to go is a knife through the heart ... or the dragon eats you, that's tight. If you get killed by the dragon, that's super tight."
