New Jersey governor Chris Christie told a group of students that his favorite football team is not the Giants or Jets, but the Dallas Cowboys.
” … my favorite football team is not the New York Giants, it’s not the New York Jets and it’s not thePhiladelphia 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.
Of course Christie explained himself.
“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 theCowboys 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?'”
