One thing PostSurf has taught me: any retard can start an awesome surf website.
One of the latest is
They just put up this unintentionally hilarious
So much to savor in that
They tell us that in the interview, Bruce Irons "discusses his store, life after tour, and his new baby with longtime friend and former competitor Fred 'FreddyP' Patacchia."
Astute readers will notice TWO bombshell announcements in that last sentence:
1) Fred P is referred to as a "former competitor" - does this mean he has retired?
2) And what about Bruce's "new baby with longtime friend and former competitor Fred 'FreddyP' Patacchia?"
WOW! This is awesome. Bruce and Fred had a baby together!?!?
As a staunch believer in equal rights, I wholeheartedly support both gay marriage and gay couples' right to adopt.
So if InSurfNews is trying to announce what it sounds like they're trying to announce, congrats to Bruce and Fred!
Of course, it's possible that my inferences are the unfortunate result of misleading sentence structure in the press release.
After all, this is a website started by a pro surfer. But in the same press release, we're told "Insurfnews.com is the partnership of Fred 'FreddyP' Patacchia and Andrew Oliver. The two surfers, one a member of the ASP World Tour and the other an average surf fan/journalism major, give their opposing viewpoints to the world of professional surfing. FreddyP and Andrew are traveling the world together..."
Again, I'm not sure what to believe. If the site is run by a journalism major, the press releases should feature well-crafted sentences. But, upon reflection, it does say that Oliver is "an average surf fan/journalism major." Perhaps, as only an average journalism major, he hasn't yet mastered the craft of writing clear, concise sentences.
And what about the "partnership of Fred 'FreddyP' Patacchia and Andrew Oliver...traveling the world together..."
Did Fred leave Bruce for Andrew? Am I not parsing these sentences correctly?
I'm so CONFUSED... But supportive of both Fred's choices and his new site. He seems like a really cool guy.
