Tara Lipinski Ice Skated As The Dude And It Was AwesomeBy: Amanda Crum - February 5, 2014
Tara Lipinski won Olympic gold when she was just 15 years old, she charmed all of us with her sweet disposition and insane talent, and now she’s proven she’s the coolest skater on the ice by dressing like The Dude and performing her routine with a White Russian in one hand.
Yes, you read that right. Lipinski performed the solo routine as a special send-off for Jimmy Fallon this week, skating to Kenny Rogers’ “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” in a bathrobe in homage to “The Big Lebowski”. Now I want to see her do a full show set to songs from the film. Give us some CCR!
Lipinski is currently in Sochi with NBC to report on the Olympic games, so we’ll keep a White Russian on ice for her when she returns. Until then, check out her routine.
Fallon visited Leno on “The Tonight Show” earlier this week and read aloud a sweetly funny thank you note, earning him praise from those who think he has shown class during the transition, especially in the middle of some tension between Leno and NBC.
“Thank you, Jay Leno, for passing the torch to me,” Fallon said. “Hopefully it doesn’t get intercepted by a Seahawk. Thank you, Jay, for teaching me how to be a late-night host — but was it really necessary for me to ‘wax on, wax off’ your entire car collection? I didn’t know I was going to get Miyagi-ed when I came out here. Thank you, Jay, for giving me such great advice for the Tonight Show like ‘you don’t need a monologue,’ and ‘have you ever thought about getting bangs?’ And finally, thank you Jay Leno, for carrying on the proud tradition of the Tonight Show host with such humor and class and for being nothing but gracious and generous to me over the past years. I will do my best to make you proud every single night. Thank you.”
