“Gus drives a Jeep which makes him a little like John Byrd. Gus also wears a hat which makes him a little like Matt Morris. He went to the University of Washington which makes him a little bit like Matt Wallace, and he’s a great guy to have on your team…which means he is nothing like Chris Krajcer.”
