New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is facing criticism after he was caught on camera celebrating and giving a "man hug" to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after the team won Sunday.

Christie was shown on national TV with Jones and others, jumping up and down and hugging after the go-ahead touchdown.

Christie's appearance didn't sit well with fans of the rival Giants and Eagles, which are favored by his New Jersey constituents.

The governor's brother, Todd Christie, came to his defense on Facebook stating:

"To all of those non Cowboy fans who have their panties in a ringer because the Governor of NJ is a Cowboys fan --GET A LIFE!!! Eagles fans - possibly you should worry more about the fact that your sorry "expletive" team has never won a Super Bowl and less about who's rooting for which team. I mean crazy pathetic posts."

Christie's hugging and team choice has sparked the question: do sports choices really matter in politics?

Jedediah Bila said the whole situation makes her like Christie more, since he's remaining loyal to his team despite his constituents' criticism.
