New Jersey and youse. Excellent collectively.
Presumably placing an finish to the sports activities spat between Trenton and Philadelphia sports activities followers, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy congratulated the Eagles on profitable the Tremendous Bowl.
His Sunday night time tweet asserting, “the @Eagles proved they deserved to be #SuperBowl champs. Congratulations to all of their diehard followers on an unimaginable recreation and an incredible season,” was a far cry from the final time the crew, or their followers, have been on the lips of a New Jersey governor.
“The Eagles do suck and so they’ve sucked for a very long time,” former Gov. Chris Christie famously stated final yr on WFAN. “And their followers are typically indignant, terrible individuals.”
How instances have modified.
After begging Eagles-loving South Jersey residents for his or her votes when he was operating for workplace, Christie chronically irked Philly sports activities followers. Christie, who is a large Cowboys fan, used to rub it of their faces when he sat in Jerry Jones’s field at Lincoln Monetary Discipline. His feedback on the radio final yr continued his political and sports activities rivalry with Philly Mayor Jim Kenney.
Kenney has twice referred to Christie’s “ass” in retaliatory tweets, akin to “Chris Christie is sitting on his very giant ass subsequent to Jerry Jones in his field on the Linc. You suck!”
With Murphy’s good notice, it might be the daybreak of a brand new period of interstate relations.
Kenney, who’s planning a parade for Thursday, has not but responded to New Jersey’s new governor.
