ended up being perfect/ perfect
1 I feel lucky. My timing ended up being perfect...
2 I feel lucky. My timing ended up perfect....
Sentence 2 sounds correct to me, but sentence 1 is taken from the NYT. Could you explain what difference, if any , is between them? Thanks.
Re: ended up being perfect/ perfect
They mean the same thing. 2 would be more colloquial, more common in speech.
