New Jersey Governer Chris Christie A Rangers Fan

from Joe DeLessio of New York Magazine,

Here’s Christie, speaking in June of 2010 to the Star-Ledger, in response to a follow-up question about his Dallas Cowboys fandom. The emphasis in the answer is ours:

And you never thought about faking or hiding this?

I don’t nuance much very well (laughs). You know what? I always hated Hillary Clinton wearing a Cubs hat or a Yankees hat. I’m a Cowboys fan, I’m a Mets fan, I’m a Rangers fan, I’m a Knicks fan. I’ve got the Devils and the Nets in New Jersey, but I grew up when the Nets were on Long Island and the Devils didn’t exist. It’s not that I don’t want the Devils to do well. I want them to do well when they’re playing anybody but the Rangers. That’s who I grew up rooting for.

I wonder if he’s such a Rangers fan that he would see them live and fall asleep during overtime…

Seriously, a Cowboys fan? Is he also a Duke basketball fan? Maybe a Notre Dame or U of M college football fan? Shouldn’t he be a Giants or Jets fan?
