Christie Says He Wasn’t Sleeping at Bruce Springsteen Show [POLL/VIDEO]

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie insists he was listening — not sleeping — during a recent Bruce Springsteen concert in New York City.

Christie says a fan snapped a photo of him with head back and eyes closed during the show at Madison Square Garden one day after returning from the Middle East. The governor says The New York Post incorrectly concluded that he’d dozed off.

Christie told reporters Thursday that he had leaned back and shut his eyes to listen to the spiritual-sounding song “Rocky Ground” when the picture was taken.

The governor is a mega-fan who has attended 127 Springsteen concerts, though he and Springsteen seldom agree politically.

Christie says he buys his tickets from band members Steven Van Zandt or Max Weinberg at face value.
