Chris Christie Falls Asleep At Bruce Springsteen Concert

Posted: Updated:

Chris Christie may not be into Bruce Springsteen's new album. The New Jersey governor, a die-hard Springsteen fan, was caught nodding off at a concert at New York's Madison Square Garden. A fan sent in a photo of Christie resting his head in his hand, apparently napping during the show, the New York Post reports. But he did appear more engaged earlier in the night.

“The governor was very active during the show,” another source inside the concert told the paper. “Bruce started talking about ‘supporting food banks in New York and New Jersey,’ and ‘how people have been hit hard,’ and Christie was riveted. Then Bruce performed ‘Rocky Ground,’ and Christie visibly started fading.”

Last month Christie attended what he said was his 127th Springsteen concert. The governor hired a Springsteen cover band to play at his inauguration after the Boss turned him down because he "doesn’t want to get involved in state politics."

Christie's name has been tossed around as a potential running mate for Mitt Romney. He was pushed to run for president himself in 2012 says he will be "much more ready" in 2016 if he decides to seek the GOP nomination.
