New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cheers against New Jersey team

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was on hand Thursday in Buffalo to watch the Princeton-Notre Dame game in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Christie has been described as “close friends” with Irish Coach Mike Brey and has cheered on Notre Dame in the past. Things were no different Thursday, even though the Irish were playing a team from his home state.

To be fair, Christie’s daughter attended Notre Dame while his son played baseball at Princeton, so he was probably at least a little conflicted.
