Christie full quote on his favorite teams

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was asked by a student, on Tuesday, at an elementary school in New Jersey, to name his favorite sports teams.

Here is his answer –

“My favorite basketball team, is the New York Knicks,” Christie said. “Which has been a bit of a frustrating enterprise, but the last couple of years they’ve had good seasons. They’ve had some fun games to watch.”

“My favorite baseball team, is the New York Mets. These are probably Yankee fans, right? That are booing? Here’s what I don’t understand about Yankee fans, the Mets stink. We’re awful. And the Yankees are usually really good. So why do you boo us? You should feel badly for us.

“The last answer, is a thing that gets all of my political advisors nervous. So get ready for a nervous moment, for them. 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. When I was your age, I was a big fan of Roger Staubach, who was the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys back then, and the Giants and the Jets pretty much stunk when I was a kid.

“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?”
