The apparent lucky orange sweater of Chris Christie is getting around. Yesterday, the governor of New Jersey was with his new bro and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during Sunday’s thrilling NFC Wild Card game at AT&T Stadium.
After the Cowboys forged ahead for a victory to advance to Green Bay in the divisional round, Christie and Jones shared an awkward group hug.
Unfortunately for Cowboys haters, it’s not the first time we’ve seen this orange sweater. It appeared earlier this season when the Cowboys needed a late season win at Philadelphia to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Yet, as pointed out on Twitter last night, the orange sweater made another high-profile appearance during an NFL postseason game…
Your eyes don’t deceive. That’s Christie holding the Vince Lombardi Trophy on the winners podium at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis when the Giants defeated the Patriots back in February 2012.
Don’t give me that “he’s the governor of New Jersey” nonsense either. The team is called the “New York Giants” and not the “New Jersey Giants.” Yes, they play in New Jersey but give me a break.
The point is, Cowboys fan or no Cowboys fan, Christie goes where the river flows in his favor.
