Once upon a time, when I wasn't too busy ruining the credibility of this sport blog, (Thanx anonymous guy who comments on my Friday lists) that is done by a group of guys who "have no credibility" (thanx Giangreco), I wanted to be a bowler. As a kid, I was alright. As a teen, I was a lil' better. And now as an adult, the only thing I worry about while bowling is where I parked my car and who it is that's with my ex a couple two-tree lanes down. But if I were "the Dude", I wouldn't have a care in the World, now would I? And to have everything in my life to be so understandable, with people always there to help me up when I fall and guide me in the right direction wouldn't be too bad of a thing either. Perhaps this film is more than a funny movie about a Dude and his rug, but instead, how to live a life? And for those of you who can't, won't or don't accept the fact that bowling is a sport, well, I'll let Walter deal with you later. My Top Ten moments of The Big Lebowski.
10. Every Dude
Dude, could you only imagine how, like, easy it would be, dude, to call everybody that you knew dude? Dude, you would never have a problem with remembering any dude's name, dude. It, would be awesome, dude.
9. The scary guy everybody wonders about.
You've all seen him. That one cat who everybody is scared to talk to because he appears to be a little different. Or a lot different. and then it's a good thing you didn't talk to him.
8.The friends who are always there for you.
We've all got these guys. The ones who'll bust your ass every chance the get, but when it really comes down to it, they'll be the guy who is standing right next to your ass before a fight breaks out.
7.The guy who thinks he's better than you.
Come on, no matter how good we were, or still are, at anything, there always will be that one douche bag who feels that he is better than you on his worst day. Cock suckers.
6.Everybody has those weird feelings
The weird feelings that somebody is watching you, or following you through the store or some other crazy shit like that. No, Danny, not the weird feeling you get when you see me eating peanuts in the shell.
5.That hot girl
You've all seen her. That smoking hot beauty waiting in line in front of you at the store. Or in the car next to you at the red light. And you've all wished that the girl would say something along the lines of what Bunny says in the movie. But, all you get is "Are you looking at my tits, asshole?" Making us all learn the lesson to always wear sunglasses.
4.The old smart guy
And all of us have, or have had, this guy in our lives. Could have been your dad, you uncle, a buddies dad or the weird guy who lived behind your house growing up. These old cats always know what's best for us, so shut up and listen when Clark is speaking to you Dubs.
We'll face many throughout our lives, some harder than others to deal with. Whatever the case, don't back down from a thing, especially guys like Jesus.
2.Remember the rules
Always, in life and in sport, play by the rules. Cheating ain't worth it because 20 years down the road, when you look at the pictures of you having the state championship medal placed around your neck, you'll remember that you should have lost that championship match, but ya' didn't 'cause you're a cheating shit bag.
1. Always remember who you are
No matter how good you get at anything, remember that you didn't go it alone. There have always been people that pushed you when you stopped (Mom and Dad), those who laughed when you lost and made you so pissed you worked much harder and got much better just to beat their ass (Egglund) and convinced you to do whatever it was that you wanted your life to become. (You know who you are.)
