The Full 90

Jimmy Nielsen, double dipping again

It's well established that Jimmy Nielsen aka The White Puma aka Casino Jimmy aka The Danish Banana* is quickly becoming the most reliably awarded goalkeeper in MLS. I mean, he's definitely got bragging rights locally, picking up his THIRD Full 90 Player of the Week this Week award. On a national scale, he's also been nominated for what feels like his 800th NAPA MLS Save of the Week award.

*I just made that up and I'm not sure it's gonna stick.

This week, The White Puma is receiving this very due adulation for his save that's now all the rage on the Danish fjords (they've got those right?) -- his butt save. Go

and vote (and vote often). Right now he's getting thumped by Nick Rimando.

For the Full 90 award, the only other real competition was Davy Arnaud or Graham Zusi. I think Jimmy's "freestyle" save trumps both of their efforts.
