NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (WCCO) — An 8-year-old Wisconsin boy will have a hard time deciding who to cheer for on Super Bowl Sunday. Blake Martin’s mother, Jill, is from Milwaukee and a Packers fan. But his father, John, is from Pittsburgh and a Steelers Fan.

Inside the boy’s bedroom, you’ll get an idea about the rivalry at the Martin home.

“I didn’t think this was going to happen,” said Blake about the upcoming Super Bowl match-up.

Blake loves football so much that his mother thought it would be fun to decorate his bedroom with both teams — Packers green and gold with Steelers black and yellow.

On his bedroom wall, he’s got Packer Clay Matthews drawn on one end with the other end occupied by Steeler Troy Polamalu.

It was the week after Christmas when Blake’s room was painted and decorated, so there was no guessing the two teams would actually be facing each other in the Super Bowl.

“I think it’s a good thing for him to be tied into both of these teams,” said Blake’s dad, John.

So who will Blake be cheering for come this Sunday? Well, he’s wearing a Packer’s jersey and a Steelers hat, if that’s any indication.

And during the game, his parents will be wearing their gear while sitting on opposite ends of the couch.

“I think Green Bay is going to try to pass it down field,” said Blake. “I think it’s going to be 35-28 … Packers.”

The Super Bowl will be played in Dallas next Sunday. Coincidentally, Blake’s mom and dad, John and Jill, met in Texas and were married there.
