Westeros and the NFL

Everyone in the Seven Kingdoms is excited about the NFL playoffs.

The wildlings and the men of the Night's Watch and even some northmen are all pulling for the Giants, of course. But in the Vale of Arryn and the Mountains of the Moon, they're Falcons fans.

The Lannisters are cheering on Detroit, even if the lion is the wrong color, but some of the smallfolk of Lannisport on its western bay are fond of those 49ers. The High Septon and all the septa and septons and devout of the realm are for the Saints.

The butchers and tanners of King's Landing and Oldtown are behind the Packers, the smiths and armorers are with the Steelers. At the Citadel of Oldtown, the archmaesters and the Conclave are all about the Ravens, but across the narrow sea the khals and Dothraki horselords are screaming and whistling for the Broncos. In Volantis, the tigers are Bengals backers; the elephants are rooting for whoever plays the Bengals.

Nobody anywhere knows what a 'Texan' is, but a few Dornishmen might support them anyway, just to be perverse.

One commonality unites all the Seven Kingdoms, and the lands beyond. Everyone everywhere hates the Patriots, and Evil Little Bill.

Walder Frey is a Patriots fan. And if you ever want to cross, you'd better cheer for the Patriots!

He'll be making sure you cheer for them when you're invited to watch the game with him, on his flat screen, in his dusty, chilly great hall, surrounded by his children and grandchildren who constantly fetch him beer and chips.

Walder Frey is not a Pats fan
He's in talks to field his own team (made up entirely of Freys, naturally) and turn the NFL into the IFL (Interdimensional Football League.) Of course, it's a toss up whether his team will be playing American football or the Games Workshop game Blood Bowl (where most players end their career in a body bag.)

The team name? The Twins Twins, of course (with apologies to Minnesota baseball fans.)

Re: Walder Frey is not a Pats fan
I'm guessing the team's color would be red?
If the Vale is behind the Pats, this North(Jersey)man is all in favor of introducing Tywin Bellechik to the Moon Door.

As a side(line) note, can we get Roz, Chataya and Alayaya in cheerleader outfits?

Well played.
