Prae Omnia Fraternitas.
We had a surprise guest today at the Boomer Esiason Roast.Frani (who is from New Jersey and attended junior high school with us) said she found Governor Christie to be self-deprecating and enjoyable.
Yes, we did. Chris Christie snuck in and did ten very funny minutes. One can see how he can charm his voters. Larry King had thought he was there in the beginning and asked him to take a bow, but he was a "no show" at that point.
When Larry realized he wasn't there he said, "I guess he got held up at the George Washington Bridge." Good line. But Christie did appear about a 1/2 hour later. The governor slipped in and slipped out, but he was definitely in the moment and gave his all on that stage. He was very comfortable. After several very funny lines he ended with the announcement of his decision to run in 2016 for the Presidency of the Football Association.
