I love that number, and I expect to roll many massive strikes on that lane. See you there. The Dude abides.”
“The Dude abides.” I don’t know about you but I take comfort in that. It’s good knowin’ he’s out there. The Dude. Takin’ ‘er easy for all us sinners.
Shoosh. I sure hope he makes the finals.
