NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

President Obama was unable to win at a boardwalk skill game after five attempts and then watched as Governor Christie won it on his first try.

The pair was at the 'Touchdown Fever' game on the Point Pleasant, N.J. boardwalk during the president's visit to see Post-Sandy recovery efforts.

The president, throwing left-handed, attempted to throw a football through a tire five times.  He missed every time.

The governor then strode up and calmly made a successful throw on his one and only try, according to the White House pool reporter.

Despite losing at the game, the concessionaire gave Obama a stuffed "Chicago" bear.  The president joked that Christie had won because he was running for office.
