Jon Corzine ended up being the butt of a couple of jokes today at the ground-breaking event for the new Giants and Jets football stadium. First, before a who’s who of politicos, football people, and journalists, Corzine said he believes the new stadium will stand for “tens and tens of decades,” or, at minimum, 200 years. Apparently a few people at the event with little exposure to the ridiculousness of speeches in professional politics had a nice chuckle.
Then Rich Eisen, emceeing the event on behalf of the NFL Network, mentioned that there would be light rail access to the stadium, adding “which we hope Governor Corzine will take.”
Ouch. I hope the Giants do better at their new stadium than Gov. Corzine did today.
