Chris Christie: Philadelphia Eagles fans are the worst in America

New, comments


Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

If you haven't noticed by now, New Jersey state governor Chris Christie is a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Christie has been seen hanging out with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in the team's press box during Dallas games, including the Eagles-Cowboys game in mid-December. Some comments Christie made about Eagles fans during his visit to Philadelphia were recently revealed by the New York Times.

"These Philadelphia fans, they are the worst in America," Mr. Christie was overheard saying recently.

He recalled a different kind of reception when he joined Mr. Jones on the field at a Cowboys game against the New York Giants, who play their home games in New Jersey. "I didn’t get booed," he said. "Giant fans waved, said hello, asked for autographs, didn’t give me a hard time."

"But these guys?" he added of Eagles fans.


Really, I don't think the Cowboys could have asked for a better mascot than Christie. He's the stereotypical Cowboys supporter: an obnoxious bandwagon fan not even remotely from the Dallas area (born in Newark, NJ). And for him to be calling Philadelphia fans the worst, well, that just eliminates any doubt.
