With just days until the big game, football fans here in New Jersey are fired up, but not because of their team spirit.
"It's dumb. It should be a New Jersey SSuper bowlbecause the stadium is in New Jersey," said one local fan.
"I feel like we're looked down upon because we're New Jersey, not New York, with all that glamour and stuff. We're down here in New Jersey," said another.
The Super Bowl is the biggest television event of the year, and with ggame dayapproaching, more and more fans are flocking to East Rutherford, but locals aren't sure if New Jersey will see any of those tourism dollars.
"Nobody knows North Jersey," said one South Jersey man. "They know New York so that's where mostly everybody's gonna be staying. They might wander down here towards Atlantic City but mostly they'll be up in the New York area."
"I think it's gonna benefit everybody, but I think we're talking semantics here, whether it's New York or New Jersey," said another spectator.
One person doing more than talking semantic is Governor Christie, who reminded the media Monday that the Meadowlands are in New Jersey.
And while the fans we spoke with are sure of where the game is, they aren't as sure of how it will end.
