Packers/Vikings Game Divides SF Family



Bookmark and Share

Whenever the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers play each other, the Nordin/Marshall household battles it out as well. 

The family has a divided loyalty when it comes to cheering on the two teams and with a playoff game on the line Saturday night, the tension couldn’t be any higher.

Matt Marshall has had purple pride since he was a little boy.

“I have been for as long as I can remember,” said Marshall. “It was always Dad's team. We always listened to the Vikings on the radio and that's been my team since I was little.”

He’s a little outnumbered in a family full of cheese heads.

"It's kind of a losing battle it seems like from time to time," said Marshall.

His other half, Jamie, is a Packers fanatic.

“We have a better stadium. We have better colors. Better quarter back. Better everything" said Jamie Nordin.

Even their 4-year-old son Konner has chosen a side.

"Go Pack Go!" said Konner.
 
The family of three says their rivalry is mostly just for fun.

“It's pretty friendly probably 363 days out of the year. This year 362 because we had to play them 3 times but other than that it's not too bad," said Marshall.

However, that doesn't mean that they can't throw in a good old-fashioned bet every now and then.

“The first game this year we had a bet and I had to get my picture taken with a Packers shirt,” said Marshall rolling his eyes. "And a title towel around me so it was a little painful.”

Like most years, the woman behind green and gold is feeling confident that her team will come out on top.

“Of course the Packers will win. I'm thinking 35 to, we'll give the Vikings 7 or 10,” said Nordin.

The Packers went on to win the game 24-10.
