Jeffrey Goldberg watches Chris Christie watching Springsteen

Many DP alums have attended a concert on Bruce Springsteen's latest worldwide tour, but one DP alum got to see "The Boss" with a notable guest.

Jeffrey Goldberg '87 attended Springsteen's concert in Newark, NJ as a guest of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Goldberg chronicled the evening in the July/August issue of The Atlantic, where he is a national correspondent.

In the piece, Goldberg, a former DP Executive Editor, details the level of Christie's intense Springsteen fandom.

"This concert is the 129th the governor has attended. His four children all went to Springsteen shows in utero. He knows every word to every Springsteen song. He dreams of playing drums in the E Street Band," he writes.

However, Goldberg describes the tension between the Republican politician and the Democratic singer.

"Just because we disagree doesn't mean I don't get him,” Christie tells Goldberg. "I get what he's trying to express and advocate for, I just don't agree that those are the most-effective policies for our government."
