Sam LeCure reports to spring training looking like The Dude from ‘The Big Lebowski’

It's titled, "The Dude Arrives" (very clever), featuring right-hander Sam LeCure of the Cincinnati Reds. With his beard and naturally laid-back nature, LeCure kind of resembles "The Dude" from "The Big Lebowski" already. But when he reported to spring training Sunday morning, LeCure went all out with the sunglasses, the mussed-up hair, the beverage in hand and a Lebowski campaign T-shirt.

"LeCure in 14??? #thedudeabides," LeCure added.

Now, that particular shirt wasn't worn in the film, but everybody knows that the Dude was political at one time in his life because of the existence of the Port Huron Statement. The Seattle Seven — the Dude and six other guys — authored the original, of course, not the compromised second draft.

The Big Lebowski. Sam LeCure. Sam LeCurebowski. Another interesting Dude.
