New Jersey governor Chris Christie loves his state and all that comes with it especially Bruce Springsteen. The politician admits hes a huge Springsteen fan, and got a little emotional after meeting The Boss at a recent Hurricane Sandy telethon.
Northjersey.com reports that Christie began weeping after receiving a hug from the musician. We hugged, said the governor to a crowd of relief volunteers. Yeah, we hugged and he told me its official were friends. The politician claims to have attended over 130 Springsteen concerts and he recently made an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon duetting with the TV host on a cover of Springsteens Thunder Road.
Christie revealed that he had met Springsteen twice before, but their interaction was limited to formal pleasantries. However, this was one of the first times where they had a chance to talk.
The governor, clearly moved by the experience, told the crowd of volunteers, I told the President today actually that the hug was great and that when we got home there was a lot of weeping because of the hug. And the President said, Why? I said, Well, to be honest, I was the one weeping, everyone else was fine.
President Obama, who had Springsteen campaigning for him during the homestretch of his political stops, gave the governor another chance to converse with his musical idol Monday when he handed the vocalist the phone while they were speaking about relief efforts.
Springsteen told the governor that hed lend a helping hand in New Jersey once his tour stops, and Christie stated that hes looking forward to the experience and spending more time together.

somethings wrong if this guys crying after a call from a rock star and effectively acting like a 14 year old girl.
he and Boehner could share a box of Kleenex at the inauguration
I didn’t know Bruce’s arms were that long.
I’m beginning to question Christie’s sexual orientation.
These guys were nerds in high school (Christie,etc.) They just want to be accepted. It’s the emotional equivalent to Christie as the High School Quarterback asking the Band Boy to ride shotgun in his Camaro while they go double dating with the cheerleaders.
what a freaking groupie, these dumb jokers with their love of celebrity
This is more pathetic than when he fell out of his chair:
GIRLIE MAN-CHILD!!! he LOOKED like a FAT KID with Obam, now he ACTS like a FAT KID with a BAD SINGER!! What a HUGE, and I mean HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!
I’d cry too. Given that “The Boss” sings like he has about 40 years worth of backed up bowel movement stuck in his colon, the smell must be awful.
He’ll be appointed Bath-House Barry’s CREAM swallowing dough-nut Czar.
the tears of unfathomable sadness ...
Huggin' and chalkin'.
