    His meaning is a little bit ambiguous, if he were speaking Spanish.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mano-a-manoMano-a-mano is a Spanish construction meaning "hand to hand". It was used originally for bullfights where two matadors alternate competing for the admiration of the audience.[1]

    Current Spanish usage describes any kind of competition between two people where they both compete trying to outdo each other or, conversely, a cooperative effort between two parties.


    Then again, he wasn't thinking in the Spanish mode.

    "weak" is being kind.
