THE ‘HERB BROOKS’ ROLE ($160,000 – $170,000+)


Herb Brooks

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota … Herb Brooks enjoyed a relatively successful career as a hockey player.

However … his name would be etched into history once he hung up his skates and took a position behind the bench.

On February 22, 1980 … in Lake Placid, New York, the team Brooks had fashioned from a patchwork of US college and other amateur players took the ice in a semi-final game against an all-star line up from the USSR.

His group of underdogs pulled off one of the most memorable upsets in the annals of ice hockey history … by defeating the Soviets by a score of 4-3 … in what is referred to as “The Miracle on Ice”.

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

THE ‘3 DOLLAR PISTOL’ ROLE (OTE: $160,000 – $170,000+)

M&F - 3 DOLLAR PISTOL BANNER

Admittedly … not a term heard often these days.
That is … unless you hang around Match and Fable’s offices!

One of its meanings refers to something being ‘hot’ … as in, attractive or desirable.
For example, “Match and Fable is hotter than a 3-dollar pistol”!

Where did the term originate?
Well … back in the mid-1800’s … gun manufacturers like; Remington, Smith & Wesson and Winchester were selling a boat load of pistols.

As is often the case … counterfeiters recognized an opportunity to capitalize on the opportunity and make a quick buck.

To keep their pistol prices super low … their manufacturing processes and standards were naturally, extremely shoddy.  Mismatched parts resulted in misaligned chambers and barrels … causing a slew of problems when fired!

In fact, in some cases … these pistols would actually explode in the shooter’s hand!

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

That said … this role is absolutely hotter than a 3-dollar pistol … and won’t last long!
