The New York Giants are two wins away from being crowned Super Bowl champions, but there's little reason to look ahead…yet. Before something like a celebratory parade can even be considered, Big Blue must first go into San Francisco and do away with the 49ers. That's primary objective number one.
Still, that hasn't stopped New Jersey Governor Chris Christie from beginning a campaign to have any championship parade held in the Garden State.
Perhaps Mr. Christie in unfamiliar with the history of the Giants, or perhaps he's just a "clever" (we use this term loosely) politician who wants all the revenue generated from such a parade to be infused into the struggling New Jersey economy. Either way, the idea of a championship parade being held anywhere other than the Canyon or Heroes is a ridiculous one.
On another note, someone should remind Christie that the Big Blue bandwagon is now full. There's no more room for Jets fans who have been abandoning Rex Ryan & Co.
“J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets," Christie said in late December when picking the Jets overs the Giants. "Absolutely. Rex (Ryan) and the boys win by seven."
Christie as a Giants fans? A championship parade in New Jersey? Fuhgeddaboudit!
