FAVORITE FICTIONAL ATTORNEY Tom Cruise in "A Few Good Men"
BIO I'm lining up to bowl. I need this strike, and I feel confident. I stare down the pins, squinting my eyes slightly so they know how serious I am. I breath out. Right foot forward. Left foot forward. Right again as I draw the ball back. I step forward with my left foot as the ball swing forward. My right knee drops back and my right hand twists slightly on the release. All around, a fabulous release. It's no Pete Weber, but I'm pretty sure it'll do the job. The ball rolls down the right side of the lane before the spin catches. It rockets right toward the pocket, curving beautifully into the one and three pins. The ball hits. The pins explode. I'm about to celebrate until I see it. One pin lingering. The ten pin. I'm livid. The shot was perfect. It had the speed--at least 15.5 mph--and it hit the pocket on a curve like a pro. But the ten pin remains. It's an easy spare, and I hit it wonderfully. Still, I'm pissed at that ten pin. The pin that wouldn't cooperate. I am also pissed at Daniel Zahn, the 6th pin.
