“They’re making fun of our sport for their cause and it doesn’t really make a lot of sense to me,” Christian Niccum, an American Olympian, said after completing two training runs at the Sanki Sliding Center. “If I were to go hug my dad and someone took a picture and showed it in really slow motion, they could use it in a video like that and that’s just ridiculous. It’s my dad. Can’t we show affection to each other without it being some sort of sexual contact? This is sports. It’s the same thing. Why does it have to be like that?”

The latest scandalous accusations against NJ’s embattled Governor Chris Christie come from Olympic hero and anthem butcherer Carl Lewis.
Lewis, a South Jersey native, was at one point being tapped by the Governor to be his physical fitness ambassador.  After Lewis decided to run for State Senate, and refused the administration’s encouragement to drop out, not only did the ambassadorship disappear, but Lewis found his candidacy challenged in the courts, then upheld, then over-turned by  Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (she of Sandy money shake-down allegations).
Lewis, however, had a different criticism for Christie than one we’ve been hearing lately - referring to him as not as a bully, but as insecure.

“I felt like he was trying to intimidate me, absolutely. But I definitely didn’t feel intimidated.  It’s interesting, everyone calling him a bully. I don’t really see him as a bully. I see it more as someone who’s insecure, and he’s governor now and has got the power.”

One thing remains constant, however.  Even then, as they do now, an administration spokesperson responded to criticisms by calling Lewis a liar.
