Gov. Chris Christie is taking time off from his busy summer schedule of closing state parks and impersonating a beached whale to officially audition next week for a sports talk show on Sports Radio 66 WFAN in New York City.
Christie, an avid sports talk fan, will fill-in for longtime WFAN host Mike Francesa on Monday and Tuesday next week from 2 to 6:30 p.m. alongside Evan Roberts. Christie has mentioned he would like to transition into a sports talk role after his term as New Jersey Governor comes to a close.
The Coggin Toboggan has obtained a copy of Christie’s prep sheet for Monday’s debut show. A prep sheet gives a rough outline of what a host has planned for the day’s show.
What do you think of his proposed show? Take a look after the jump.
2 to 2:30 p.m.: Interns scramble to find new chair for Christie after “weak hinge” gives out on swivel chair.
2:30 to 3 p.m.: Interns scramble to find second new chair for Christie after “weak legs” on solid-steel folding chair give out.
3 to 3:30 p.m.: Christie loudly complains that he is winded from having to do show standing up.
3:30 to 4 p.m.: Christie fields phone call from building inspector who informs him that the building owners will be fined after WFAN studio floor has been buckling under the pressure of tremendous, inhuman weight source.
4 to 4:30 p.m.: Loud chewing noises. An assistant heard in background begging Christie to stop eating WFAN giveaway Frisbees.
4:30 to 5 p.m.: Christie nods off and nobody bothers to roust him from his slumber.
5 to 5:30 p.m.: Speaks dreamily of open buffet at Cowboys stadium. Does not take phone calls.
5:30 to 6 p.m.: Interns buttering his sides to help him leave stadium loudly complain that they’re running out of butter after Christie won’t stop licking it off.
So what do you think? Does he have what it takes to host a great sports talk show?
