Brandon Marshall is torn.

The Jets receiver can't decide who to root for in the upcoming NLCS between the Mets and the Cubs. On the one hand, there are the Mets, the hometown baseball team of the city where he currently plays football. But before being traded to New York this offseason, Marshall played three years in Chicago, where he had 327 catches for 3,524 yards and 31 touchdowns for the Bears.

So Marshall put his decision in Twitter's hands. He sent one tweet from his verified account directed at his Chicago fanbase asking to "RT if you say Cubs" and one at his New York fanbase asking to "RT if you say Mets." Marshall said he will root for the team that earns the most retweets by 3 p.m. Saturday.

As of 8:50 p.m. Friday. the Mets had a 502-460 lead.
