Jeff Bridges, despite his obvious Dude-ness, did not abide by the rules of the game last night, and bowled the ceremonial first pitch at the Dodger game.

Channeling his inner-Lebowski (Or is it that The Dude has an inner-Jeff Bridges? Hmm.), Bridges emulated his iconic character in delivering the baseball to Giants traitor and fellow beard-haver Brian Wilson at the plate. In a further violation of decorum, he asked for the ball back and overhanded a pitch way above the strike zone, only to be admonished by the Dodger Stadium announcer: "One ball, one pitch." and the Dodger Stadium announcer cheekily joked, "One bowl, one pitch." Walter would be so pissed, Dude.
