The Bowling Bout of the Century takes place on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 10:20 pm at PINZ, 12655 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604.

The Big Lebongski Bowling League was launched last September with six charter members -- The Burbank Canna Warriors (Cannabis Career Institute, Burbank), Starling (Cannabis Business Group, Sherman Oaks), D.W.A. -- Doctors With Attitude -- (Evaluations, North Hollywood), Wrecked (Andres Auto Body, North Hollywood), 420 Nurses (Hottest Dang Models on the Planet, Woodland Hills) and The Holy Rollers (Green Angel Dispensary, Northridge)

While attendance may have been erratic at times during the debut session of the league, a pair of rolling- thunder powerhouse teams did emerge – D.W.A. (Doctors With Attitude) and Starling (Cannabis Business Group). Fittingly, the two squads are the ones squaring off for all the TBL marbles including the prestigious The Big Lebongski Bowling League Trophy.

The Big Lebongski Bowling League Trophy is a spectacular piece of glasswork that was designed and constructed by Jim Embrescia, founder and owner of Los Angeles Glassblowing ( and one of the most renowned glass-blowing bong-smiths on the planet. A self-described “artist, muse and problem-solver”, Embrescia had this to say about his seriously cool, hand-crafted creation – The Big Lebongski’s bowling homage to the “Stanley Cup”…”Similar to hockey’s holy grail, where champions celebrate by drinking champagne from a bowl at the top of the hardware, The Big Lebongski Bowling League Trophy also has a practical use for celebration – with a different kind of bowl of course -- for the victors.”

Anticipation of the Titanic Tilt in the Alley is building and a war of words between the two notorious adversaries has already begun…

Matt Key, Captain of D.W.A. and co-owner of NOHO Evaluations in North Hollywood, did indeed display some combative attitude by declaring, “Please advise the legal team that they will swept off the lanes with our talent, skill and precision rolling. The Big Lebongski Bowling League Trophy is going to look smashing sitting in our NOHO Lobby. We just hope they show up for the match.”

Fired back Eric Shevin, Skipper of STARLING CBG (Cannabis Business Group) in Sherman Oaks, “The good doctors must be collectively suffering from amnesia as we spanked them pretty hard in our last regular season match. I suggest they get the 420 Nurses in their corner to help them through any emotional distress once we hand them their lunch on the lanes…again!”

The classic Doctors vs. Lawyers rivalry -- and bowling match-up of the century -- has piqued the interest of many in the medical and legal circles, including….

Michael Chernis, Santa Monica-based Attorney, ““The Doctors are obviously taking too much of
their own green medicine if they think they can outduel the Lawyers!”

Dr. William Eidelman, Hollywood, CA (and expert on natural medicinal alternatives) – “Naturally, I will be rooting for Doctors with Attitude...that’s just how I roll.”

In a quirky twist of cosmic PR wizardry, a couple of posthumous comments also rolled in…

Criminal Defense Lawyer Johnnie Cochrane: “Balls won’t roll straight, for doctors that late.” (guess Johnnie was referring to the late night 10:20 pm start).

Dr. Sigmund Freud: “Coping and succeeding in activities that are competitive in nature require both mental fortitude and physical skill. The demand for athletic excellence is relentless and can bring about intense and often unbearable amounts of stress and high anxiety. But hey, this is The Big Lebongski Bowling League…so joyfully imbibe, order a White Russian or two and have some fun!”

The Bowling Battle of the Century takes place on Tuesday, February 3, 2105 at 10:20 pm at PINZ, 12655 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604. Everyone is invited. Team and individual registrations for the up-coming TBL Winter Session will also be taken at the event.
