    Christie mentioned in his press conference he was a high school athlete and class president, so ubernerd David Wildstein was not his friend. Wildstein is an amazingly pugnacious Garden Stater. I read a profile of him in the Record. He started politicking at the state level at age 12, sued to get on the ballot for a local party position at age 16, and had no activities next to his picture in his high school yearbook.

      This guy at the New Repoublic actually called up Christie's high school coach and got this report: Wildstein was not an athlete, but was on Christie's team in a sense:

      David Wildstein was our baseball statistician. He was a very quiet, unassuming, brilliant kid. He’d do the baseball stats like you wouldn’t believe... He’s doing it all with a calculator, none of the fancy technology... He knew the game but he wasn’t at all a player. I mean, not at all.
      I knew somebody just like that! Truth be told, baseball is a lot less boring if you try to score the game while it's going on. But then it becomes exhausting.
