New Jersey Governor Wants Super Bowl Parade In His State

If they win the Super Bowl New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wants the New York Giants to hold their victory parade in New Jersey. Christie played the "They play in New Jersey," card Wednesday while appearing on the 'Today' show.

Christie -- and pretty much everyone else on the planet -- knows that isn't going to happen. I mean, c'mon, who wants to go to a parade in Jersey when you can go one in Manhattan.

They are the New York Giants, even if the stadium is located in New Jersey. That's just how it is.

I don't see anyone from San Fransisco offering to make bets on the outcome of the game with Christie. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, on the other hand, has something on the line this weekend.

Christie's old, tired argument is silly. Take the money the stadium and the two teams who play in it generate for your state and be happy with that, guv!
