Destroy Springsteen CDs? ‘Probably wise, sage’ advice, Christie says

PORT MONMOUTH – Gov. Chris Christie told a town hall crowd he’s still holding out hope that he and his long-time idol will someday truly become friends.

Who could it be? Bruce Springsteen, of course.

“I still have hope,” Christie said, referring to someday becoming Springsteen’s friend.

“I live in hope,” he said.

The governor was responding to a lighthearted remark from one of the roughly 400 people who attended Christie’s first town hall since he was re-elected in November. The resident asked Christie to destroy his Springsteen CDs.

“You are probably giving me wise, sage counseling that I should accept,” responded Christie, adding he’s not at the point where he’s ready to turn his back on Bruce.

(Springsteen recently sang a spoof video about the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy with Jimmy Fallon.)
