Assumption would be Fredo Corleone from the Godfather.Can I get an explanation on what a Fredo is?
My favorite word for Fleck is Elite he has raised the bar to a new height for the gophers football team I never thought was possible.
the tweet was ranking top B1G west coaches and it ended with tubby as #6 with no Fleck mentionedFredo Corleone was passed over for succession of the family business by Don Corleone in favor of his youngest son Michael. Fredo being jealous and ambitious went on to do things that went against the family (never do that...) up to and including aiding an assassination attempt on Michael by a rival gangster. Michael eventually ordered the assassination of his older brother, the coup de gras delivered while fishing on Lake Tahoe.
Not sure how Fredo fits PJ. I’m sure many organizations have Corleone-like dynamics but that tweet writer will have to explain.
My friend calls Fleck Pajama Man and the label has stuck.
Actually, I think name Fredo is more likely a hobbit reference than a gangster reference. Fredo Boffin hails from the Tolkien trilogy and he was a ring-bearer.(tongue in cheek)
Well, Fleck is on the short side - so I think the tweeter actually made a typo. He was going to call Fleck "Frodo" - because he's the same height as a hobbit.
And if the Gophers win a championship, that would make Fleck a "ring bearer." So, it kind of fits.
