New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is not on the bandwagon just yet after a 2-1 start to the season.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie does not have high hopes for the Mets this season.

"It smells like an 81-81, this a kissing your sister team," Christie said at a press conference in Trenton, according to the Star-Ledger. "There will be moments when they'll be really good, and we're going to feel momentarily excited. And then there are going to be seven- or eight-game losing streaks where we're not going to want to turn the TV on."

The newspaper also quotes Christie -- a Mets fan -- saying the team's mediocrity would help him focus on getting Republicans elected.

"Another depressing September and October for me, which will probably give me more time to campaign. I'll be going to less Mets games," Christie said, according to the Star-Ledger. "It might be bad news for the Democrats."
