One person can get hit and calculate it and formulate it and do the right thing. And then there’s the one person that is going to get mad and run away and deal with it the right way”
“He has the energy, he’s a fighter by nature. I don’t know about his brother but him, he’s a fighter by nature. He like this, this is what he likes, he loves this.
