So the past few days there has been a lot of articles written online about NJ Governor Chris Christie possibly falling asleep at a Springsteen concert. Now my Governor doesnt usually need help defending himself, but I figured he can use a helping hand from a big time fan and NJ voter.
As a big Springsteen fan it is IMPOSSIBLE for another big fan to fall asleep. Even with what looks to me like crappy seats for Gov. Christie - I always go General Admission.
Bruce constructs his setlists with very few down times in the show and on this tour there are only two typical slow spots - Jack of All Trades and Rocky Ground. However, right after those songs Bruce picks it back up again so even if by some odd chance Gov. Christie kept his eyes closed a little too long while taking in the soulful Rocky Ground he would have jumped back up on the next song anyway. And, this was one picture taken at a moment of time, so sure anyone of us can look bad with a quick photo.
Did the Governor fall asleep? There is no chance but did he look asleep for what must have seemed like an eternity to the fan who snapped the bad picture? Sure it's possible but even at that point the Governor would have been on his feet when Bruce and the E Street Band pulled out Rosalita (the very next song).
Rocky Ground into Rosie? There is no way Chris Christie was sleeping at this Springsteen concert.
