New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was booed as he took the stage at the Super Bowl handoff ceremony in Times Square on Saturday.
As if it weren't enough that his former ally, ex-Port Authority Official David Wildstein, is saying that there is evidence Christie knew about the George Washington Bridge lane closings that caused a monstrous days-long traffic jam in Fort Lee -- now he's getting booed in public, too.
The crowd jeered as Christie took the podium to "hand off" the Super Bowl to Arizona, the host of next year's big game:

Chris Christie definitely booed before he went to speak. "We hate traffic!" someone behind me chanted.

Broncos fan Louis Martella not sympathetic to booed Gov. Christie in NYC: "Stop closing bridges and you won't get booed." Also, "Omaha!"

Christie was also booed by the crowd at a Super Bowl kickoff party in Jersey City earlier this week.
He's probably missing the good old days before Bridgegate, when he'd get booed for being a Cowboys fan.
