Christie started the whole thing, calling Brown an old retread at the Republican National Convention. Brown responded. “I’m old. I’m 74. I’ll be 74 and a half next month. OK, Christie, I challenge you to a three-mile race. Try some chin-ups maybe, and some push-ups. “I said, this old retread can beat you any day of the week,” Brown said.
He is behaving like one of those old codgers at the gym who wants everybody to feel their hard stringy bicep or maybe challenge you to a chin up contest. You just can't win no matter what happens. Big woop. You beat the old guy.
As a guy who could stand to lose a few pounds myself I wonder at the Governor's motivation here? Hey, who's the fattest guys in the Governor's association? Let me humiliate him and make him feel even worse about himself, losing to an old guy. He knows he's overweight, why be an asshole Jerry?
