You would think that you would be able to stay awake for an epic Bruce Springsteen concert at Madison Square Garden with thousands of screaming fans and “Rosalita” blasting throughout the arena. However that wasn’t the case last week when New Jersey governor Chris Christie took a nappy during the Bruce show.
Opie & Anthony Show guest booker and Springsteen super fan Roland Campos was at the concert and saw the governor taking a snooze and Tweeted out the picture.
Christie, who is rumored to be Mitt Romney’s running mate in 2012 presidential election denies that he fell asleep. Christie claims that he was engrossed in the song, “Rocky Ground,” which is kind of a really spiritual song. . . I sat on the seat, put my head back, closed my eyes and listened.” It doesn’t appear that the governor was having a spiritual enlightenment and instead taking a snooze.
