New Jersey is comprised of a large number of football fans. It’s simple: the majority of them loyally support the Giants, Jets, or the Philadelphia Eagles.
A lot of these same residents have one team in common around the top of their most hated list: the Dallas Cowboys. Except for one notable exception.
By now, most of us have seen the video of Gov. Chris Christie in Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ box attempting a group hug with his entourage. Reaction has not been good in this area.
People are diehard fans in this area, but one Christie has to get points for loyalty. One reason he is a Cowboys fan is because he’s been one since 1971. "I saw Roger Staubach play for the first time, and this was 1971, and I became a huge Staubach fan,” Christie said, according to CBS Sports. “And as a result, a Cowboys fan, and I've been one ever since."
But now it has been mentioned that the N.J. governor's trip to Cowboys game may have been an ethical violation.
