MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (WXYZ) - The 7 Action News team packed a fun piece of equipment for our trip to this year's Mackinac Policy Conference. We brought along a portable foosball table hoping to score some fun interviews with Michigan's movers and shakers. Today, Governor Rick Snyder took on anchor Stephen Clark.
Clark and Snyder spoke about foosball at the annual conference on Mackinac Island several years ago. This year, we brought a portable version of the classic table game in an effort to add a little fun to some of our interviews.
Before a longer - more serious - interview with the governor, Clark took him on in foosball.
Both had clearly played before. In the end, our Stephen Clark was first to score.
