i see. just pray that we win the damn thing."Eke" as in "eke out" is one of the most misunderstood terms in English. As you say, people generally think it means "to achieve by a narrow margin, due only to luck or arduous effort," as in "The Canadian Hockey team eked out a gold medal."
Actually, the term means "to supplement" or "to fill out," as in "I eked out my income by driving 10 hours a week for Uber" or "she eked out her bustline with some crumpled-up tissues."
