In around 1973 … Croatian immigrants, Marijan & Slavica of Burnaby, BC handed their son a hockey stick and strapped a pair of ice skates on his feet.

At the time … no one could ever have imagined what series of events were being set in motion and that years later …. their son would affectionately be known as ‘Burnaby Joe’ by the locals!

Long story short … Joe Sakic would go on to rocket through junior hockey and have an NHL career that would cement his legacy in the sport.
‘Super Joe’ represented Canada in the Olympics, earned numerous awards and was instrumental in hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup for the Colorado Avalanche – twice!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s current role?
Well … nothing really.

THE ‘JOHNNY CASH’ ROLE (OTE: $100,000 – $150,000)

Johnny Cash - Black & White
One of seven children … J.R. Cash was born in Arkansas on February 26, 1932 and grew up on the family farm.

His family made their living in the cotton fields … a job Johnny was introduced to at the age of 5!

Fast forward 46 years and following significant financial success as a country singer … Johnny had built the “House of Cash” on a farm, 25 miles outside Nashville – where he kept exotic animals.

1981 delivered a particularly harsh winter and as such, Johnny decided he needed to move his animals into shelters to help them survive. As Johnny approached his 7-foot ostrich named Waldo, it was clear the bird was not in a cooperative mood.

As Johnny cornered the bird … Waldo jumped into the air … delivering a vicious kick that split Johnny’s stomach wide-open. The force of Waldo’s kick broke 5 of his ribs and caused significant internal bleeding.

What does this have to do with my role?
Well, nothing really.
Nothing at all.
