What’s in a Name?

Following the two-week 2017 Marathon Bridge Team Trials produced on BBO … when Bobby saw the final scores being posted, I overheard him humming a tune I recall from the days of that antiquated medium of radio. The melody may have been the most popular marketing advertising tool ever carried over the airwaves. It went something like…

Pepsi Cola … hits the spot;
Twelve full ounces … that a lot!
Twice as much … for a nickel, too;
Pepsi Cola … is the drink for you.

However, Bobby was thinking more in terms of the victorious Fleisher Teams’s popular recruit “Pepsi” (aka Jacek Pszcola) … a great addition to any group vying for a spot to represent one of the U.S.A. teams in Lyon.

He remarked…

“A belated Welcome to America, Pepsi! At least while I was watching BBO, it became obvious to me that players of your caliber, expertise, and continuing stability under pressure are few and far between … including what I consider the most important asset of all … high-level quality judgment!”

Good luck to all our teams in France. We are indeed proud!!!!

That is quite a tribute!

Indeed! Bobby always tells it like he sees it. Bear in mind, this is not intended as disrespect to other contenders. There were several marvelous players who competed quite well in the Trials. However, being on foreign soil and not recognized by many, Bobby thought the tribute to Pepsi was well deserved!

Exactly who is he? Tell us more about him, please.

Hi Lisa,

I don’t know much more than what Bobby related to me above. I only envision him via a smile or a wave. However, my personal opinion is that if Bobby had not retired from bridge (to relax and enjoy the rest of his life with me in the delightful town of Vegas ), Pepsi would have been the very type of partner to whom he would be attracted. His description above says it all.
