Co-hosting a sports radio show this morning, Gov. Chris Christie sounded off on everything from Jets Coach Rex Ryan and legalized sports betting to the 2014 Super Bowl and his favorite punching bag, former Gov. Jon Corzine.
Seventy-one days out from Election Day, the Republican governor spent four hours on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show.
Christie set the trash-talking tone early in the show with a guarantee that next year’s Super Bowl in New Jersey will avoid the pit falls of New Orleans. He guaranteed no power outages and, given the Farmer’s Almanac prediction of a snowstorm, plowed streets. He also encouraged fans to take mass transit.
“We’re from New Jersey. It snows all the time. What’s the problem?” Christie told host Craig Carton, joking: “Blinding snowstorm during the game. It’d be amazing.”
Carton teased Christie about this frustration over New York teams who play in New Jersey. “If you rebranded the New York Giants as the New Jersey Giants, you’d lose money,” Carton said. Christie didn’t miss a beat: “Maybe when Corzine was governor you might have lost money…”
Christie saved his biggest insults for a reporter, slamming a New York Daily News reporter as a “dope” who he “couldn’t pick out of a lineup” for tangling with Ryan at a recent news conference.
On Ryan’s decision to play Mark Sanchez in the fourth quarter of a preseason game at MetLife Stadium last week, Christie defended the man who once gave him advice on getting lap band surgery…..Share on Facebook
