Chris Christie was not pleased with a Cubs fan at Miller Park this afternoon.

Watch Chris Christie and his nachos get in a Cubs fan's face at Miller Park

Warning, fellow Milwaukeeans: The following video may be the saddest, most unpleasant and most depressing thing you see this year – and it's not even 30 seconds long.

In the following clip – posted on Twitter by WISN 12's Ben Hutchison – New Jersey governor Chris Christie, he of the 15 percent approval rating, gets in the face of a Cubs fan at this afternoon's Brewers-Cubs game at Miller Park, sarcastically telling him, "You're a big shot," while holding an order of nachos. The confrontation is then immediately topped off by an alarmingly large crowd of Chicago fans loudly cheering on a game-deciding home run from Cubs first baseman Victor Caratini, who is currently battling an impressive .192.

Here's the footage for yourself. You can't say we didn't warn you.

The Cubs fan – named Brad Joseph, a relative of Hutchison – told WISN 12 that he had called Christie's name as he passed him going up the stairs and "told him that he sucked ... I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said."

"He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute," Joseph recalled to WISN. "(He) was yelling at me. First he told me, 'Why don't you have another beer?' which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy."

And that's around the time when the video fired up.

Now, if you're wondering why Christie would be at a Brewers-Cubs game a whole time zone away from New Jersey, as it turns out, the governor's son works for the Milwaukee Brewers. That also explains why he was at the game Friday night as well.

No matter who wins in a battle between a politician with a low approval rating and a Cubs fan, however, we lose (literally, in this case; the Brewers lost, 4-2).
