'The Big Lipinski': She really ties this routine together, does she not? Gold-medal figure skater Tara Lipinski performs a tribute to "The Big Lebowski" on ice. Tara "The Dude" Lipinski Source: "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Feb 4, 2014 at 2:45p ET "Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!" Tara Lipinski channeled "The Dude" in a mini-routine for Jimmy Fallon, White Russian in hand. The Olympic figure skating champion, who is an analyst for NBC at Sochi, skated a tribute to "The Big Lebowski," which was released the same year she won her gold medal, 1998. We think Lipinski, which I guess sounds a little bit like Lebowski, put together a short skating number that really tied the room together. Did it not?
