You may know about the flapdoodle about New Jersey governor Chris Christie and a New York Daily News reporter. It’s an absolute blast. Christie called the reporter a dope, among other things, for grilling Jets coach Rex Ryan about Ryan’s decision to put quarterback Mark Sanchez back into an exhibition game with 11 minutes left, whereupon Sanchez injured his shoulder. Said grilling took place in a postgame media confab. Well, this is big news in the New York area. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a humdinger about the incident and about Christie and I’d like to share it with you. FYI, until all this happened I kind of liked Christie. Oh, heck, I still do. I grew up with guys like him. To read Dowd, click here.
