As we enter a new year … this story serves as inspiration for us all!

Adam Brown of Hot Springs, Arkansas was an A-student and star football player – with a bright future. That is, until he met a lady with a drug habit.
Adam had never dabbled in hard drugs … but after one hit of crack-cocaine – he was hooked.

His life spiraled quickly … and he began stealing to support his drug habit.
Shortly after that girlfriend left him, police found him in a crack house … laying in a pool of blood.

Facing 11 felony charges, he chose to enter a drug rehab to avoid jail time.
Adam eventually cleaned up his act and persuaded the Navy SEALs to give him a chance.

During a training accident, Adam lost his right eye … so he learned to shoot, using his left.

In Afghanistan, he suffered a freak accident resulting in his right hand being mangled – he learned to shoot with his left!

By age 33 … Adam suffered with arthritis, a bad back, a broken leg and surgery on both ankles – but he refused to quit.

In March 2010, while on special mission in Afghanistan – Adam was struck by enemy fire and died.

While his story ended tragically, Brown’s life is a testament to what can be accomplished by perseverance and hard work!

THE ‘DIE HARD’ ROLE (OTE: $125,000 – $140,000+)

In January 1933, five friends came up with a devious plan. With the help of a crooked insurance agent, they purchased a life insurance policy on Michael Malloy – a homeless, alcoholic.

Tony Marino, a tavern owner … offered Malloy an unlimited tab, banking on the idea Malloy would summarily drink himself to death … and the 5 friends (later dubbed The Murder Trust), would cash-in on the policy.

Malloy seized the opportunity to drink, from sunrise to sunset … and returned every day, to do it again.

Growing increasingly impatient … Marino swapped the liquor with antifreeze, then turpentine, then horse liniment and finally … rat poison. Malloy just kept drinking – unfazed!

In desperation … the men tried feeding Malloy a plate of raw oysters, soaked in wood alcohol … and a sandwich of spoiled sardines, mixed with poison & steel shavings. Malloy asked for a second helping!

They tried freezing him to death … and even ran him over with a car … yet, Malloy survived.

On February 23, 1933, after a full day of drinking … Malloy passed out. The five men carried him to a room, put a hose in his mouth (connected to a gas jet) … and Malloy died, within the hour.

Dr. Frank Manzella pronounced Malloy’s death a result of ‘lobar pneumonia’ and his body was swiftly buried. Police quickly heard rumors and ordered Malloy’s body be exhumed and examined.

Long story short … the men were aptly convicted of murder, and the “good doctor” was held as an accessory after the fact. One of the men went to prison while the remaining four booked their date with the electric chair!

THE ‘NUMEROPHOBIA’ ROLE (OTE: $60,000 – $80,000)

NUMEROPHOBIA (1)

Believe it or not … there’s a term for people with an irrational fear of numbers!
It’s called ‘numerophobia’.

Now, we’re all pretty familiar with the superstitions surrounding numbers.

The #13 is widely considered to be unlucky. So much so, that many architects skip the 13th floor when designing their buildings.

The #666 is believed to be the sign of the devil!

And … many people prescribe to the belief; bad things happen in 3’s.
For example, lighting three cigarettes with a single match … will lead to death!

Individuals stricken with this affliction fear all kinds of numbers – especially complex math equations!

MIRACLE

Herbert Paul Brooks Jr. was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1937 and had a moderately successful career as a hockey player. However, once he hung up his skates and took a position behind the bench … his name would be etched into hockey history!

On February 22, 1980 … in Lake Placid, New York, the hockey team Brooks had pieced together from a patchwork of American college and other amateur players took to the ice in the semi-final game … against an all-star line up from the Soviet Union.

His group of underdogs pulled-off one of the most miraculous upsets in hockey history.
They defeated the USSR by a score of 4-3 … in what is commonly referred to as … ‘The Miracle on Ice’.

When the host of ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Jim McKay was asked to describe what viewers had just witnessed; he said … “That may be the greatest upset in sports history” … adding it was the equivalent of an all-star football team of Canadian college boys beating the Pittsburgh Steelers – (who had just won their fourth Super Bowl in six years)!

KrampusRole

As December rolls around in North America, children are all a flutter with thoughts of Christmas and Santa Claus.
But … while these children contemplate the gifts they hope to receive from Santa Claus … their counterparts in Eastern Europe are faced with a far different scenario.

Half-goat … half-man, his ‘modus operandi’ is directly opposed to that of Old St. Nick!

Krampus’ mission is to search out naughty children … and administer appropriate punishment.

THE ‘SHEEP FEET’ ROLE (OTE: $63,250)

SheepFeet.jpg

As the story goes, the world’s first restaurant opened in Paris, in 1765.
Mr. Boulanger … (a soup salesman, turned tavern keeper) opened its doors with a single-item on the menu – sheep’s feet simmered in white sauce!

Unlike other food-type businesses operating at the time, such as taverns (alcohol) and cafes (coffee) … his business focused on food. Naturally, the idea of ‘going out to eat’ was a foreign notion – as people had always eaten meals at home.

Here’s the real interesting part; Boulanger claimed his special dish would restore people’s health.
And … it just so happens, the French word for restore is, restaurer.
You can thank us later … but, now you know how the word ‘restaurant’ came to be!

By the way … a local food union sued Boulanger for infringing on their right to sell cooked food. The union ended up losing their case … and the years that followed saw restaurants pop up … all across the country.
