Sounds good to me.
Yeah, but the difference is, Matt's never made lame excuses when he's lost fights, so it's easy to believe he just wants to have fun...'cause you know he's still believing he's gonna kick ass at the same time...that's his fun! With BJ, he's cried wolf too many times on the lame excuse train, so it just sounds bad. There's nothing wrong with his words per se...it's just the assumption that he's once again talking out of his arse.
