  1. Brett, why do you think they call him Deuce? If his nickname were Trey, then we’d all go for the hat trick hope. But if I were an excellent soccer player, I would like my nickname to be “Pele to the second power” and I’d be thrilled if someone hoped I scored a brace.

    When I was a kid at Shriner’s Hospital, that phrase had a whole different meaning. And I really was a kid at Shriner’s hospital. We all wished we didn’t need to score a brace, and we’d be pissed if someone hoped we did.

  2. If you are suggesting they would bench their second or third best player based on wining once when he came in as a sub instead of starting, then they do have something to lose at this point if they bench him: one of the few decent players they have. And (as even their manager realizes) their chance to stay up.
