And the New York Giants biggest rival arguably is their divisional foe, the Dallas Cowboys.
So New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had a secret he felt he couldn’t hold in any more.
” … my favorite football team is not the New York Giants, it’s not the New York Jets and it’s not the Philadelphia Eagles. Get ready now: My favorite football team (is) the Dallas Cowboys – which, by the way — is not the smartest thing for the governor of New Jersey to want to be, is a fan of the Dallas Cowboys,” Christie said, via NFL.com.
Interesting because at one time New Jersey had an NBA franchise, before they moved to Brooklyn. And they currently have a NHL team, the New Jersey Devils.
But Christie tried to explain why he likes the Cowboys to the students.
“I was a big fan when I was your age,” he said. “I was a big fan of Roger Staubach, who was the quarterback for the Cowboys back then. The Giants and the Jets pretty much stunk when I was a kid and my father was a Giants fan. I used to remember watching him when I was eight, nine years old and every Sunday he would watch the Giants and yell at the TV set. I used to think to myself, ‘Why would I want to root for a team that makes you angry?’”
Not a bad move for someone considering a presidential run in 2016. Texas has a lot of electoral votes.
