Christie to watch from Dallas side at Giants-Cowboys game
TRENTON, N.J. -- Don't be surprised to see New Jersey's first football fan rooting for Eli Manning to get sacked when the New York Giants face the Dallas Cowboys.
A longtime Cowboys fan even though he grew up in New Jersey, Christie and his wife and son will be the guests of former Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach.
The Record of Woodland Park (http://bit.ly/168KIwr) reports Staubach has contributed to Christie's re-election campaign.
Christie has joked before that his rooting interest probably offends most of New Jersey, a state that divides its loyalties between the New York Giants, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.
The Cowboys are hated division rivals of both the Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles, who also have a big New Jersey fan base.
Christie, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, is scheduled to headline three fundraisers in Texas for the Republican National Committee on Monday. Organizers have said the events include a breakfast in Dallas, a luncheon in San Antonio and a reception in Houston.
