“But I think I might have been there on a free evening. I don’t know it. It was Thursday at 10 a.m. This is not an evening off.”
While the manager was reportedly “trying to buy Tom out,” Jax claimed, “In fact, if I was interested in a takeover, they offered me.”
“I don’t know if it was a strong offer or not.”

Jax turned down the manager’s offer because he “couldn’t do that to Tom Schwartz.”
