MOVE THE NEEDLE (OTE: $63,000 – $74,000+)

In 2010, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport set a land speed record, for production vehicles, travelling 430.98 km/h.

In 2017, the Koenigsegg Agera RS did even better … clocking in at 447.23km/h.

And, in October 2020 … SSC Tuatara Hyper-car set a new Guinness Record when the needle on its speedometer topped out at an unbelievable 508.72 km/h.

THE ‘MIRACLE’ ROLE (OTE: $175,000 – $185,000+)

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)!

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!

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

In September 1976 … Joe Pistone exited his local FBI office … and ‘vanished’ for six years!

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.
