Who is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s favorite football team?





Governor Christie

They’re going to get nervous now because 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 are 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.

But I was a big fan when I was your age. I was a big fan of Roger Staubach who was the quarterback for the Cowboys back then and the Giants and the Jets pretty much stunk when I was a kid and my father was a Giants fan and 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?

So I decided not to and the Cowboys were really good back then and I liked Roger Staubach so I’ve got a chance now to talk about the fun people I’ve gotten to meet.

I’ve actually gotten a chance to meet Roger Staubach who lives in Texas now full-time and came up to New Jersey for an event and I got to meet him and he signed the football for me which I have in my office so that’s pretty cool.
