• Christie's roommate from his old traveling baseball team called up and said: "I'm the only man to have ever slept with the governor." Christie, in a reference to "gay American" former Gov. McGreevey, responded: "That's not unusual for governors of New Jersey." So far this has not triggered a controversy, but the day is still young.

  • Jose Reyes (my favorite Met) is not being traded mid-season, Christie believes, despite the fact that the team is going nowhere and a Reyes trade could bring in some nice prospects. "He's not leaving," Christie declared. Maybe he has some juice in this regard with the Mets owners, the Wilpons, who are friends of his.

  • Christie made fun of the Yankees and several people affiliated with the team, from Manager Joe Girardi to announcer John Sterling. He also hypothesized that Alex Rodriguez and his girlfriend, Cameron Diaz, can't wait until Derek Jeter gets off the field and stops playing. Top quality Yankee-bashing from the gov, something both Mets and Phils fans can get behind.
