"He bowled a 129. I bowl a 300." Special Olympics bowler Kolan McConiughey thinks he could beat President Back Obama in a game of bowling.
While the Associated Press interviewed McConiughey in Michigan, he bowled a few strikes -- using a left-handed hook -- to back up his claim. The 35-year-old Michigan bowler has racked up five perfect-300 games in less than four years, and once bowled a three-game series over 800. In fact, he's bowled an average of 212 for every game he's played -- nearly double Barack Obama's highest bowling score.
Thursday Barack Obama made a quick joke during an interview on "The Tonight Show," revealing his latest bowling score to Jay Leno: 129. It was a moment meant to be charming, with the President mocking himself, but he described his bowling performance as "the Special Olympics or something." Before the show even aired, Obama issued an apology to the chairman of the Special Olympics, according to the Associated Press. And in another part of California, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger offered his support over the President's gaffe.
"I know, because of conversations I've had with the president about Special Olympics ... I know where his heart is,"
