"The only thing New York about the Giants is the ‘NY' on their helmets. They train in New Jersey, they play in New Jersey and most of their players live in New Jersey," Christie said.
According to New York governor Andrew Cuomo, the "NY" on the helmet means quite a bit, actually. He is the process of trying to goad Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick into a wager on his New England Patriots. As for what state gets credit for "New England", Cuomo maintains that the un-specified region is so that Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maine can all maintain "semi-deniability" of the Pats.
