The parallelism of GOT and World Cup 2014

I am one of those people who are crazy about Game of Thrones, even after the season has ended us here at work still talk about it and we just can't help but to extend all the drama and controversy and yeah the action to this year's FIFA World Cup. If you look very closely, it's not hard to see the resemblance of the two.So here we pinpointed the parallelism between the epic tv show and the world's most watched sports. Let's see if you agree with us. ☺ 
It’s not hard to draw parallelism between with the World Cup and the award-winning fantasy drama Game of Thrones. To begin with, the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros could easily be equated to the seven continents of the world and that the epic battles waged by the Great Houses can be compared with the matches played by the competing national teams. And just like the football drama that we witnessed during the tournament, the TV series explores issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, civil war, crime, and punishment through its morally ambiguous characters. According to the latest report, Game of Thrones is currently the most watched TV shows in the US, while similarly, the World Cup match between US and Portugal broke record as the most watched TV broadcast.
