TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Twitter is abuzz again about Gov. Chris Christie and his beloved Dallas Cowboys.

This time it stems from television footage of Christie celebrating in the box of Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones Sunday after Dallas’s 24-20 victory over Detroit in the NFL playoffs.

Christie was briefly seen hugging Jones and others after the Cowboys clinched the win. Some tweets joked that Jones rejected Christie’s attempt at a high-five. Others say Christie has become a good-luck charm for the Cowboys, who next travel to Green Bay.

Christie has taken considerable ribbing about his allegiance to the Cowboys, who are bitter rivals of the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants, teams favored by most New Jerseyans.

Christie has said he’s been a fan since he was a kid and isn’t ashamed of it.
