THE ‘KRAMPUS‘ ROLE (OTE: $52,500 – $67,500)

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.

You see … on December 5th, before they lay down to bed, children place one boot outside their house, eagerly anticipating the arrival of St. Nicholas and his treats … while fearing the prospect of the dreaded … Krampus!

Essentially, Krampus is the Christmas Devil.
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.
In modest cases, this can entail a ‘simple’ whipping … with a birch stick.

In more serious scenarios … Krampus is said to toss the worst of children in his sack … dragging them to his lair … where he gobbles them up for his Christmas Dinner!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Absolutely nothing!

Joe Pistone was born in 1939 in Erie, Pennsylvania but …. grew up in Paterson, New Jersey.

TheExecutioner.png

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in terrible poverty.  Although uncommon for someone raised in such conditions, Betty was literate … so she taught her son to read and write. She constantly reminded her son that only money could bring him happiness … and when he was old enough … he left Roscommon to find fortune – in America!

One dark evening, many years later … a well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door asking for a place to stay. She welcomed him in, but that night, as he lay sleeping … Betty (with knife in hand) crept into his room … and murdered the man for his money!

As Betty rifled through the stranger’s belongings, she discovered this ‘stranger’ was in fact … her son!
Overcome by the horror of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … confessing her guilt.
She was arrested, stood trial … and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On Execution Day … as Betty and several other criminals were filing into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.

Seizing the opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the others herself!
The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work!

“Lady Betty” (as she came to be known) was so efficient … she was appointed Roscommon’s official Hang Woman, a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!

THE ‘GINO BARTALI’ ROLE ($70,000+)

GinoBartali.png

Gino Bartali was born in Ponte a Ema, Florence, Italy in July 1914. Celebrated as a champion cyclist … he won the Giro d’Italia – three times (1936, 1937 & 1946) and the Tour de France – twice (1938 & 1948)!

In 1943, when Italy surrendered to the Allied Forces … the German army began occupying parts of the country … rounding up Jews, and sending them to concentration camps.

Soon after … Bartali, (a devout Catholic) was approached by the Cardinal of Florence, to join a secret group offering protection and safe passage to Jews and other endangered people.

His role in this network was that of a bike courier. And, to the casual eye … he looked as though he was simply going for long training rides, when in reality, he was transporting photographs and fake identity documents to and from secret printing presses – hidden in the tube frame of his bicycle!

So, while Bartali’s achievements in his sport were spectacular … his contribution to mankind was so much more significant!

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

THE ‘WALLY PIPP’ ROLE (OTE: $45,000 – $52,250)

WallyPipp.jpg

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!

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.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much, really.
