And more from the pool reporter:
The party then moved to an arcade called "TouchDown Fever" to try and win a stuffed bear by tossing a football through a tire. Obama tried and missed a few times. Christie then threw the ball through the tire, on his first and only try. Obama gave him a high five ending in a clasp. And said, "That's because he's running for office." The guy behind the counter gave Obama a "Chicago" bear.
Obama and Christie shook hands on a rope line. At one point, potus just held up both hands while tons of kids slapped him five.
