Jersey Gov. Nods Off At Springsteen Show

New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a self-professed Springsteen fanatic who claims to have attended 126 E Street Band concerts might wish his 127th came on a night he was better rested.  The New York Post reports that Christie appeared to fall asleep during a portion of the Boss' set at Madison Square Garden.  The embarrassing revelation comes as the Garden State's head honcho has been waging a campaign to get  Springsteen to commit to doing a concert at Revel, a multi-billion dollar casino resort scheduled to open Memorial day Weekend in Atlantic City.   The quick fade is said to have begun as the band started playing Rocky Ground just after Bruce had issued an appeal from the stage for fans to support metropolitan area food banks.  A spokesperson for the governor would not comment on the alleged nap.
