Failed Sports Radio Host Chris Christie Catches Foul Ball To Disgust Of Mets Fans

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie showed off his athletic side at tonight’s Cardinals-Mets game, reaching from his seat to make a left-handed catch of a foul ball off the bat of St. Louis shortstop Paul DeJong.

Christie celebrated his catch with a round of high-fives before appearing to give the ball to someone else in the stands. The broadcast cuts away from Christie just after he seems to offer the ball to someone a few rows behind him; it would stand to reason that he’d be giving the ball to a child, but it would also stand to reason that he’d have tried to avoid so much of what’s gone into a scandal-ridden career with record-low approval numbers and time spent as Donald Trump’s manservant, so who knows?

Meanwhile, the stadium had the good sense to boo him raucously.
