|It is decided!|
Pete Eckhart is a main character on FX's The League. At the beginning of the series, Pete is a three time League Champion. He is known for tricking his gullible friends into making poor fantasy trades. Pete works out of a cubicle, but avoids doing actual work as much as possible. He is Kevin's best friend.
Pete attended high school with Kevin, Ruxin, and Andre. He is known to be the most "normal" among his group of friends, although he has struggled to mature in life and is still having a hard time getting used to adult life. Pete has been a participant in the league ever since it started, and has won three of the championship titles. His wife, Meegan, hates him and separates from him meeting her at Ruxin, and Sofia's Party. In Season One, he made a trade with Andre for Ronnie Brown for Plaxico Burress even though he is in jail. He is also the Sacko Bowl commissioner. He has been to the Shiva 6 times winning half and to the Sacko 2 times avoiding it once.
