SPIN ($65,000 – $75,000+)

Plate spinning is considered a ‘circus manipulation art’ where a person spins numerous plates atop long poles … without letting them crash to the ground.

The process requires flawless concentration and calculated movement!

The Guinness World Record for plate spinning is held by David Spathaky.
In 1996, in Bangkok … with his assistant Debbie Woolley handing him plates, Spathaky rested plates on dowels and, with a flick of his wrists … sent them spinning for minutes at a time.

He was able to reach a grand total of 108 plates, before his record-breaking feat came to an end!

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

That said … our client is looking for a Plate Spinner of their own (so to speak)!

THE FIX ($70,000 – $100,000)

On October 9, 1919, (after having won winning Games 6 and 7) … the Chicago White Sox faced off against the Cincinnati Reds, in a “must-win” 8th game of the World Series.

The White Sox were widely considered one of the best baseball teams in the sports’ history.
But they lost … 10-5.

Long story short, 8 members of the team were accused of ‘fixing’ the series, in exchange for money.

The players were acquitted in their 1921 trial, but the Commissioner of the MLB issued a life-time ban from professional baseball – to all of them.
