Chris Christie Wins Stuffed Chicago Bear for Barack Obama in NJ Boardwalk Game

Wednesday May 29th, 2013


Swampland has the details:

On a tour through the rebuilt New Jersey shoreline, Gov. Chris Christie saved President Barack Obama from arcade-game humiliation, winning the commander in chief a stuffed “Chicago” bear in a football-tossing game after Obama went 0-for-5 on the Point Pleasant boardwalk.
If Obama, a known Bears fan, seems lukewarm on the prize, it's because what he really wanted was for Christie to win him a slugger for the White Sox. (He would have settled for a replacement-level guy.)
