On June 2, 1925, the New York Yankees were sitting in second-last place.
When their star player, Wally Pipp arrived at Yankee Stadium … he went to see the team trainer to ask for two aspirins – for a headache he was nursing.

Team Manager, Miller Huggins happened to be walking by, and said – “Wally, take the day off … we’ll try that new kid, Gehrig at first today … and get you back in there tomorrow.”

Years later, Wally referred to the incident as “… the two most expensive aspirin in history.”

What was Wally talking about?

Well … the game Pipp bowed out of, marked the first game of Lou Gehrig’s career … and no one could have imagined that over the next 14 seasons … he’d go on to play an incredible 2,130 consecutive games!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing, really.

That said … the term “carpe diem” was never more relevant.
Gehrig seized the opportunity to showcase his value … and if you’re a recent graduate looking to get your shot in “the big leagues” … … this is your opportunity to do the same!
