Chris Christie gets up in the face of Cubs fan heckling him during game, but keeps iron grip of his nachos

After BeachGate and that time he got called a “fat-ass” on live radio, one might think Chris Christie would consider laying a little bit low, but apparently low-profile isn’t in the New Jersey Governor’s vocabulary.

OK, low-calorie isn’t in there either, but that’s a whole other post.

Christie was at Miller Park on Sunday watching the home-team Milwaukee Brewers (the team’s front office reportedly employs Christie’s son) play the Chicago Cubs when he encountered Cubs fan Brad Joseph on the way back from, where else, the concession stand.

While video footage showed Christie telling Joseph “you’re a big shot” before walking away, Joseph told WISN TV his side of the story:

“When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was quite a bit passed me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked. … I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute. (He) was yelling at me. First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy.”

Naturally, the rotund governor everyone seems to love to hate these days didn’t get the better end of this deal when it came to social media reaction:

Folks especially made light of what Christie had in his hand during the confrontation:

And then there’s this take, which we can’t totally verify as true or false:
