Governor Chris Christie has a message for Jets fans.  They're New Jersey's team.

"Today when they're practicing, where are they practicing? New Jersey. And when they play their homes games, where do they play? New Jersey. And where do most of their players live? In New Jersey," Governor Christie said on Tuesday.

A day earlier, he reminded reporters that coach Rex Ryan also lives in New Jersey.
