We’ve seen some strange things over the years cost politicians a chance at the White House. But the Dallas Cowboys?

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could be heading down that path.

New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro tells of a conversation of Christie’s he overheard, where Christie was talking about his time in the suite with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles a few weeks ago.

Christie described Jones as being “beside himself during the game” and it being “a very stressful time in the box.”

And then Christie laid into the fans.

These Philadelphia fans, they are the worst in America, Mr. Christie was overheard saying recently.

In Christie’s defense, Philly fans do have quite a reputation. But still, it’s probably not a good move considering the southern half of New Jersey roots for the Eagles, according to Facebook data.
