Hey, they may be 0-6, but at least they’re not the Dallas Cowboys.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a Dallas Cowboys fan, had a little fun with Senator-elect and New York Giants supporter Cory Booker at a supermarket groundbreaking appearance on Thursday.
Christie took the time to lightly jab both Booker and the Giants with his statements. “I'm happy for the mayor today with his victory last night,” said Christie, according to the New York Daily News. “It was the first win the Giants have gotten all year. ”
The governor continued, "Little did Tom Coughlin know he was gonna have to depend on a washed-up tight end from Stanford to get his first win of the year. But desperate times call for desperate measures, don't they, Cory?”
Booker did play varsity football when he attended Stanford.
Christie and Booker also appeared together in September at a ceremony for a Newark charter school. “The governor and I can write a dissertation on our disagreements,” Booker said, according to CBS New York. “Today shows that when people can reach over those lines that divide and make ties that bind, what can be accomplished together.”
Speaking of his and Booker’s appearance at Thursday’s groundbreaking, according to USA Today, Christie said it was “another example of how people of different parties can work together and accomplish big things.”
Meanwhile, the Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles, both 3-3, will battle for supremacy” of the NFC East. And the Giants and the Minnesota Vikings who have combined for one win between them, will play at MetLife Stadium on Monday.
