VIDEO: Frankie Hejduk tells tale of time he Throwback Thursday'd on a Wednesday | SIDELINE

Sometimes when you're Frankie Hejduk and you're too busy loving life — just like you have been for the last 20 years, since you became a professional soccer player at age 21 — you can't be bothered to even remember what day of the week it is.

And why should you care, even if you do know? Because when you're Frankie Hejduk, every day is Awesome-day.

Anyway, the above video, in which Frankie tells a fairly typical Frankie story — in an incredibly typical Frankie fashion — reminds us, as if we could have forgotten, why the former US national team and Columbus Crew right back goes by the nickname "Hey-dude."

"Frankie, it's Wednesday, bro." And thus, #WeirdWednesday was born.

Don't ever change, Frankie.
