As if watching his home town football team lose its chance to advance to the Super Bowl wasn’t bad enough, Attorney General Eric Holder was stuck at the airport on Sunday, according to a fellow passenger.

Holder, a native New Yorker who told the New York Daily News that he was a “died-in-the-wool Giants fan,” watched the Indianapolis Colts defeat the New York Jets 30-17 in the Delta Sky Club at Reagan National Airport on Sunday, according to an online poster.

“He is watching the Colts Jets game with everyone else, plus his security detail. Doesn’t the Attny General of the US fly Air Force? Even if for leisure? I guess this is a good sign that our air system is relatively safe,” wrote FlyerTalk user “andrewpartyman.”

Weather conditions delayed flights at the airport yesterday, according to news reports.
