“I don’t know how we, in any way, can think about going up there without having him,” the owner said. “With the way we’re playing, and the mojo.”
“I said, ‘Listen, Roger, I can’t guarantee the lights aren’t going to go out,'” Christie said. “‘But if they do, there will be bodies strewn in the parking lot for the people who are responsible for the lights going out.'”
“I hereby challenge Governor Christie to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up contest,” Brown proclaimed. “And whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome.”
