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.

Love it!
Somehow, I knew my Niners would be a hit in Lannisport. I guess I can understand why the Lannisters themselves would be rooting for the Lions, but I'm pretty sure Tywin would've been a big fan of the Bill Walsh dynasty. Innovation, smarts, starpower, and plenty of flash... all backed by the profligate spending of an owner who was never ashamed to do whatever it took in pursuit of a championship. Aside from mere colors and geography, I've always just had the sense that Lannisters and 49ers belonged together.

Ya seriously, detroit is more like the chequy lion, some famed ancestors, but never greatness. Whereas mr. D and the 49ers established a football dynasty that lasted twenty years, five super bowls and like a bajillion trips to the conference championship. Joe, jerry...jamie?
