While any outrage on my behalf at the Special Olympics gaffe would be completely manufactured, it seems an Ann Arbor gentleman and six-time Special Olympic bowling champion Kolan McConiughey has issued a one-on-one deathmatch with the Commander-in-Chief. From M Live:
OK, Mr. President. You think your pitiful bowling skills are something you'd see at the Special Olympics?His average last year was 218, so Obama better seriously improve if he doesn't want his ass handed to him. Obviously, since only about 7 or so people don't like Obama in hippiesque Ann Arbor (most of whom are relatives of mine), the confrontation is good-natured.
An Ann Arbor man has a challenge for you.
"Bring it on, Obama!" says Kolan McConiughey, who is proud of the six Special Olympics bowling medals he's won as well as the fact that he's bowled five perfect games. "I challenge him! I'll show him how to do it."
Kolan bowls at the Colonial Lanes in Ann Arbor, which I recall has some pretty good Rock N' Bowl action on Fridays, and back during the 90s the bar at the bowling alley would serve high school kids with shitty fake IDs. I also have confirmed reports from my Mother that Kolan is a grocery bagger at the Busch's near Ann Arbor Saline Rd. Yes, the city is not that big, and it could use a boost in publicity after UofM had a seriously depressing season of football.
