Hey dude!

Since you always reminded me of a surf guy, I’ll say it again: Hey dude, I get it, you just don’t like the South American teams.

You have consistently made it clear in most of your predictions.

I understand!

Here is a golden quote from Lalas:

"With all respect to England,’ he said. ‘I think they have a good team but they maybe are not as good as they think they are."  
I guess you don't like England either.

Hey dude, I’ll “hang five“ with you anytime, brother of the surf.

Cat, I just don’t really care who you like or who you don’t, just give commentary if you’re a commentator.

If you want to make personal preference comments, well then you should write for the New York Times editorial page.

They would love to have you I’m sure.

Anyway, dude, just wanted to give you a rip.

I hate to hurt your feelings, but the Cup will travel somewhere to South America.

Anyway, I’m just a Barney here, maybe someday we can put on our baggies, get our boards and drop in on each other and maybe get a Shaka from the locals.

Hey, just in case my readers don’t understand, that’s surf talk.

Enough said.

Note: Here is a link of definitions for the surf talk:
