Judge: Bridge case complaint against Christie can proceed

Judge: Bridge case complaint against Christie can proceed

But this is hardly the first time Christie has torched fans from the City of Brotherly Love (which is sort of amusing when you consider southern New Jersey is filled with Philly fanatics). "They're an bad team".

But he's also ripped fans of Philly's other teams to shreds over the years, which is something he did on Wednesday night while appearing on SNY New York.

And he claimed their Citizens Bank Park "is not safe for civilized people".

"This judge has once again violated the Governor's constitutional rights and intentionally ignored the earlier ruling by Assignment Judge Mizdol", Christie spokesman Brian Murray said in a statement. Christie and some panelists were discussing the Phillies' use of Tug McGraw's "Ya Gotta Believe" slogan - which the late closer popularized with the New York Mets - in their spring training stadium during a segment called "Let's Overreact".

Last November, two former Christie associates were found guilty over their roles in plotting the lane closures in an act of political retribution against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, who had endorsed Christie's opponent in the gubernatorial election. Ya gotta Believe what?

Christie told SportsNet New York on Wednesday that Phillies fans are "are generally - generally - angry, terrible people".

Back in October, Bernstein relayed details from the courtroom as Bridget Kelly, who was Christie's deputy chief of staff, testified under questioning by her defense attorney. "Whether it's something I'll do when I get out, I've got to start thinking about that". "Giant fans waved, said hello, asked for autographs, didn't give me a hard time". Christie is a Mets fan.

"It's certainly one of the things that I hope I'll have a chance to consider when I get out and stop being governor", he added.
