Sports Illustrated sat down with A Song Of Ice And Fire (Game Of Thrones) author George R.R. Martin to talk sports. In one exchange the interviewer asked, "What about the families: Are the Starks, say, the Green Bay Packers?"

Martin: "The Starks are heroes, so they would be the Giants."

The reporter followed up, "And the Patriots, the archenemies?"

Martin: "Maybe those would be the Lannisters."
