Here's to Frankie "Hey-dude"!

This one is dedicated to the hero of all 30-something guys out there who like to kick the ball around and toss back a few 12 ounce curls every once in a while, Frankie Hejduk.

The 35 year old surfer/soccer player was called into the US Mens National Team camp to replace Clint Dempsey who is out with a shoulder injury ahead of the crucial clash with Honduras (which no one in Huntsville will see). Illustrious soccer writer Grant Wahl dropped the news with this gem of a tweet.

Frankie Hejduk called into USA camp. Use of "dude" in player interviews will increase exponentially.
Wahl followed that one up with this nugget.

Frankie Hejduk on the secret to his longevity with the U.S. national team: "It's this new beer I've been drinking ..."
Nice! Note to self: Find out what brand he's drinking and see if the Nook carries it. Who am I kidding, the Nook carries everything (Well, everything that's legal in Alabama!).

Speaking of Frankie and beer, our friends over at Free Beer Movement have started a petition to recruit Sir Surfs-A-Lot to serve as the spokesman for their "righteous cause".

Help a brother out and sign the petition here.
