When Blink-182 performed at Boston’s TD Garden on Sunday night, true pop punk fan and former Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker was front and center, dancing with all the enthusiasm of an angsty young teenager.

Baker, who now leads the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) after stepping down in January, made no secret of his love for the group. In the past, he received Blink-182 vinyl albums for Christmas, celebrated his re-election in 2018 by seeing the band live in Las Vegas, and even choked up remembering how Blink-182 and their fans honored a veteran at a concert in Mansfield.

So when Sunday night’s gig rolled around, where would Baker be if not in the pit?

“Blink 182 in Boston. Is @CharlieBakerMA here? ” a person asked on Twitter Sunday night.

“Yeah. In the pit on Mark’s (Hoppus) side. I thought the show was amazing,” Baker replied, also acknowledging bandmate Tom DeLonge, who reunited with Hoppus and Travis Barker on tour for the first time since. 2015.

Baker said highlights from his concerts included “Stay Together For The Kids”, “Bored To Death”, and “I Miss You”.
