I love my governor, but please, can you STFU and not jinx anything here? Besides, the guy is a Jets fan.
If the New York Giants happen to win the Super Bowl, the only logical place to hold a parade is in the Canyon of Heroes in Lower Manhattan. Unfortunately Michael Bloomberg would be there mangling names, but I’ll live with it.
Gov. Chris Christie, an outspoken Jets fan, is rooting for a victory parade in New Jersey if the Giants win twice more this postseason to capture a second Super Bowl title in four seasons.
Speaking on the “Today” show this morning, Christie stated that should the Giants win the Super Bowl next month the team’s victory parade ought to be held in New Jersey.
Christie pointed out that the Giants play in New Jersey — the Meadowlands have been their home since 1976 — and their training facility is also on the Meadowlands campus.
When “Today” host Matt Lauer pointed out the Giants logo, which adorns the team’s helmets, is an “NY,” Christie retorted, “That’s about it.”
When they won in 1986 they actually drove around the parking lot and had some sort of celebration inside the old stadium. But realistically, you’ve got to do something like this in Manhattan or don’t do it at all.
Still, wait until you win before announcing any plans.
