Chris Christie: Giants' Potential Victory Parade Should Be In NJ

NEW YORK (WFAN) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie just took one "Giant" leap for the Garden State.

If the Giants win the Super Bowl, Christie wants the victory parade in his state, not across the way in Manhattan's Canyon of Heroes.

"They play in New Jersey," Christie, when asked about where the Giants should host their potential celebration, responded Wednesday morning during his appearance on the "Today" show. "They train in New Jersey."

Host Matt Lauer then hinted at the Giants' iconic "NY" logo.

"What's it say on their helmets?" he asked.

Christie was quick to respond: "That's about it."

Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for millions of dollars in state funding to help keep the Buffalo Bills -- the only NFL team that actually plays its regular-season games in the Empire State -- in western New York.

The Giants held a rally in East Rutherford after they won Super Bowl XLII, but the 2008 ticker-tape parade marched down the Canyon of Heroes.

Does Christie have a point? Make your case for NJ or NY in the comments below...
