New Jersey governor Chris Christie has no plans to retire the orange sweater that became weirdly famous during the Dallas Cowboys’ playoff run, which came to an end with a 26-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

"It'll be recycled," Christie told "I don't know about retired. It definitely needs a dry cleaning. It's not getting pilly yet, so that's a good thing. The sweater will go back into the closet for cocktail parties or whatever we use it for."

Like most Cowboys fans watching on Sunday, Christie was left miffed by the decision to reverse the call on Dez Bryant’s fourth quarter catch.

"Surprised. I was really surprised," Christie said. "I thought he took three steps and reached out for the goal line, which is what you're supposed to do. It's a football move. I don't quite get it. I heard the back and forth on television afterward. It's just the way these things go. And I think it just shows as always, replay is good but replay doesn't prove everything. There's still judgment in this game, and the referee made his judgment. That's the way it goes."
