Rendell: Christie’s a “Wuss” For Cowboys Fandom

“How can a Jersey guy be a Cowboys fan? It’s pathetic.”

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is tearing into Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — not over anything political, but over something really important: He can’t stand that Christie is a Dallas Cowboys fan. NJ.com reports the comments came Thursday on 97.5 the Fanatic:

When the radio host jokingly asked Rendell if it’s legal to be a Cowboys fan and the governor of a New Jersey, Rendell confirmed there’s no laws against it – but that doesn’t mean it’s right.

“It’s legal but it indicates a basic inferiority complex,” he said. “If you are a Jerseyite or a Pennsylvanian and you’re rooting for the Cowboys, it means you’re not secure in yourself and you wanted to root for a team that was a team in your youth that was a constant winner.”

The host suggested Christie and the former governor duke it out.

“Tell him I think he’s nothing but a wuss,” Rendell said.

The Eagles and Cowboys play Sunday night in Philly.
