If there were any doubt that brotherly love trumps favorite football team allegiance in the Christie family, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's brother let us know he's sticking with his bro, even if he is a Dallas Cowboys fan.

To all of those non Cowboy fans who have their panties in a ringer because the Governor of NJ is a Cowboys fan—-GET A LIFE !!!

Todd Christie, an acknowledged New York Giants fan, took to his Facebook page to defend his Cowboy-loving brother, in the wake of another social media firestorm after the Governor was shown on the Fox TV broadcast celebrating the Cowboys playoff victory over the Lions in Jerry Jones' owner's box.

“To all of those non Cowboy fans who have their panties in a ringer because the Governor of NJ is a Cowboys fan—-GET A LIFE !!!” Todd Christie wrote on his Facebook page, a few hours after his brother was seen on camera awkwardly hugging Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a skybox at AT&T Stadium in Texas.

The Cowboys won, 24-20, beating the Detroit Lions. Christie’s state is home to two football teams, the Jets and the Giants, and, of course, South Jersey residents of his state are partial to the Philadelphia Eagles. But aides to the Jersey boy, who has been brutalized on Twitter for his Cowboys love for weeks, insist he’s a lifelong Cowboys fan.

“The Gov has been a Cowboys fan for his entire life and ALL of you would sit with the owner of your favorite team in a heartbeat if given the chance,” Todd Christie wrote.

“I’m a Giants fan — we are sitting home for the fourth straight year. Eagles fans — possibly you should worry more about the fact that your sorry ass team has never won a Super Bowl and less about who’s rooting for which team. I mean crazy pathetic posts. And for every calorically challenged FB person who posts about the Gov’s weight — forget the magic mirror and look at yourself. Weight posts—-really?”

Here's what the Governor said in response to being with Jerry Jones last month when the Cowboys beat the Eagles in the regular season:
