Per Sports Illustrated:
New Jersey governor Chris Christie got in the face of a Chicago Cubs fan and said “Yeah, you’re a big shot” after the fans in attendance at Miller Park on Sunday afternoon were reportedly teasing him, according to Ben Hutchinson of WISN 12.
In a video, Christie can be seen holding some nachos before going nose-to-nose with the Cubs fan. The Cubs fan was asked by one of the people around him what did Christie say and the fan replied: “You want to act like a big shot?”
Christie’s son works for the Brewers. Christie was recently booed at a New York Mets game after catching a foul ball in the stands. He has also filled in for New York City sports radio host Mike Francesa in what may have been an audition to possibly succeed Francesa, when he retires at the end of the year.
Gotta give Governor Christie credit. He is going into hostile territory when he goes to these baseball games. Earlier this year at a Mets game he did make a heck of a catch on a foul ball. Despite the great catch and handing the ball to a child, he still was booed.
He also sat in for Mike Francesa on his radio show on WFAN. He may have been auditioning for the job once Francesa retires. These calls were hot as the sports fan called in and brought the heat. Say what you want about Christie, but he can talk and it made for some very entertaining radio. At this point he knows he is not up for re-election and has thrown caution to the wind. Listen to Governor Christie and a "communist from Montclair" go at it.
It looks like the end of Christie's run as New Jersey Governor is going to be extremely entertaining.
