This comment thread that I entered (and entered, and entered, and entered, and entered [thanks, OBAMA KINJA!]) into got me thinking: what if Texas were Westeros, and each of the Great Houses and the lesser houses were located in a Texas locale? Here's what I have so far:

Starks โ€” Amarillo

Baratheon โ€” Houston

Lanister โ€” Dallas area/Park Citites

Martell โ€” San Antonio

Greyjoy โ€” Corpus Cristi

Arryn โ€” El Passo

Tyrell โ€” Austin

Bolton โ€” Lubbock

Frey โ€” Waco

Tully โ€” Tyler
