On Sunday in Milwaukee at a Cubs-Brewers game, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie confronted a Cubs fan like a stern father trying to make a teachable moment out of a situation. Apparently, he was getting heckled by some fans, so he chose to get in the face of one. The incident started when Cubs fan Brad Joseph yelled at the governor as he passed him, telling him that "he sucked" and calling him a "hypocrite", he told WISN-TV. He was quite a bit past me, and 30 feet away.

"He turned around back toward me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute". "I thought it needed to be said", Joseph said.

The video circulating on Twitter showed Christie leaning over to almost get in the man's face at Miller Park, holding the order of nachos in his left hand.

Chris Christie won't take your heckling lightly. [He] was yelling at me.

Christie, an avid sports fan who has been spotted at Dallas Cowboys games, has a son, Andrew, who works in the Brewers' front office. Christie was recently booed at a New York Mets game after catching a foul ball in the stands.
