A passionate Dallas Cowboys and New York Mets fan, Christie has shown himself to be adept in the arena, firing off the hot takes regularly as a guest host on the Boomer & Carton show on WFAN in New York.
In January 2014, several New Jersey residents filed lawsuits against Christie claiming that the massive traffic incident was caused by deliberate actions.
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. After their loss Wednesday night in Calgary, the Flyers have stated they can not afford another loss if they want to make the wild-card spot. A Mets fan, Christie also said it's it's not safe to attend a game at Citizen's Bank Park and root for an opposing team.
When the topic turned to the Phillies and their use of the Tug McGraw "Ya Gotta Believe" slogan inside the team's Clearwater, Florida facility, Christie had quite the response.

"There was zero, I repeat zero, conversation about that", said the aide.
"It's certainly one of the things that I hope I'll have a chance to consider when I get out and stop being governor", he added. "I've said it since I've ran for Governor in '09, never hid it from anybody, and so, I don't understand why they're angry about me being happy about my team winning?"
