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 β€” Amarillo

Baratheon β€” Houston

Lanister β€” Dallas area/Park Citites

Martell β€” San Antonio

Greyjoy β€” Corpus Cristi

Arryn β€” El Passo

Tyrell β€” Austin

Bolton β€” Lubbock

Frey β€” Waco

Tully β€” Tyler
