Christie lunch is just that -- no job forthcoming, sources say

Christie lunch is just that -- no job forthcoming, sources say

Christie was asked to respond to the Phillies posting the famous Tug McGraw mantra "Ya Gotta Believe" in the hallway of their spring training facility, given that those words have always been associated with the Mets. The judge set a March 10 date for Christie to answer the criminal summons, though it's unclear if he will have to appear in person.

That "angry, bitter" group of fans includes the southern half of Christie's state, but he wasn't getting re-elected anyway so he might as well burn that bridge.

That's when Christie, who is reportedly interested in becoming a sports talk show host once his tenure as governor ends next year, went full Skip Bayless, blasting Phillies fans as "awful people". They're interested. But the hostility, I will tell you that I take for being a Cowboys fan - and this is what I say to Giants fans all the time, and Eagles fans.

"This judge has once again violated the Governor's constitutional rights and intentionally ignored the earlier ruling by Assignment Judge Mizdol", Christie spokesman Brian Murray said in a statement. Still, that matchup left a searing impression on Mr. Christie.


In January 2014, several New Jersey residents filed lawsuits against Christie claiming that the massive traffic incident was caused by deliberate actions.

The Mets, who Christie says he has been a fan of since childhood, have not won a World Series since 1986.

Back in October, Bernstein relayed details from the courtroom as Bridget Kelly, who was Christie's deputy chief of staff, testified under questioning by her defense attorney. "Giant fans waved, said hello, asked for autographs, didn't give me a hard time". Christie said on air. "And their fans are generally-generally-angry, bad people".
