One online ad offers $40 an hour to someone who will impersonate a shirtless
Christian Grey, the protagonist from ”Fifty Shades of Grey,” on Nicollet Mall in
Minneapolis, the city where this year’s Super Bowl is being held. Another offers
$13 hourly to someone who will walk back and forth and unravel yarn for an art
project, according to Minnesota Public Radio News .
One woman wants to hire someone for $30 an hour to hand out flyers promoting
the Instagram account for her 20-pound cat. Elizabeth ”Z” Townsend said she’s
gotten 20 to 25 people interested in the job.
”I’ve always wanted to gain recognition in a way and when I got Dumpling,
he’s just the most beautiful cat and I knew that other people would like him as
well. It brings people joy. It brings me joy to follow other cats and animals on
Instagram,” Townsend said.
The Super Bowl crowds offer so many opportunities for side hustles that one
man is making a documentary about them. David Leach, of New York City, got the
idea at last year’s Super Bowl in Houston. This year’s Super Bowl is Sunday at
U.S. Bank Stadium between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
”I was thinking, man, somebody has got to capture this. I mean, there are so
many different personalities that go to the host city just because of the amount
of money that’s on the street,” he said. ”I’ve never been to a place in my life
where there’s more business transactions happening at every level.”
Leach hired two Minnesota residents to help him navigate the state as he
makes his movie, called ”Hustler’s Holiday.”
”It’s really an amazing time just for anybody that’s working in almost any
capacity, whether it be a chef or a hotel manager or an Uber driver or a DJ or a
person trying to promote their cat,” Leach said.
Jackie Santrelle, 22, is hoping the Super Bowl could be her big break. She
replied to a Craigslist ad seeking a Tina Turner impersonator, and was instead
cast as Diana Ross for the ”Tribute to Motown” show at the Minnesota Music
”It was amazing how the universe moves because I went in to do backgrounds
and I came home Diana Ross,” Santrelle said.

DALLAS — Two days after the Minnesota Wild defeated the Dallas Stars 5-2 at
Xcel Energy Center, the Wild seek another favorable result in the rematch
Saturday night at American Airlines Center.
In that victory Womens
Connor Hellebuyck Jersey , which made the Wild (43-24-10, 96
points) 5-2-3 in their past 10 games, Minnesota got two goals from Zach Parise,
a short-handed goal from Mikael Granlund and power-play goals from Matt Dumba
and Jason Zucker.
But none were bigger than Granlund’s equalizer, which came after Dallas had
taken an early 1-0 lead thanks to a goal by Stars captain Jamie Benn and with
Dallas in the early stages of a four-minute power play.
“Absolutely, we’re down 1-0, they can make it two, potentially three at that
point and we score the goal while short-handed. It was a big turning point,”
Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said postgame. “It gave us a lot of life after that
because we were pretty dead the first eight or 10 minutes.”
Minnesota is 17-18-12 on the road and will likely be without defenseman
Gustav Olofsson (upper body) after Boudreau termed Olofsson “very questionable”
to travel to Dallas for the rematch after Thursday’s victory.
Besides seeing his team respond well to the early deficit on Thursday,
Boudreau also sees something else rather encouraging from the Wild as near the
start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs-strong team unity, which often manifests
itself in players sticking up for one another and propping each other up.
“Well, that’s the only way you can win is if you’re a team through and
through. Sticking up for each other is a big sign of it,” Boudreau said.
Dallas (39-31-8, 86 points), on the other hand, has dropped nine of its past
10 games. The Stars, who are 25-12-3 at home, are literally hanging on in the
race for one of the two wild-card playoff spots in the Western Conference.
The Stars, who have four regular-season games remaining (three road, one
home), are currently six points behind Colorado and St. Louis (92 points each)
for the final wild-card spot in the West. The Blues also have a game in
But as it has been for much of March, a lack of effort hasn’t been the issue
for the Stars. Its recent rash of losses have instead been because of a lack of
execution on both ends of the ice.
“We worked hard again Tim Heed
Jersey ,” Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock said after Thursday’s loss.
“We battled like crazy, competed, did the things you want to ask for. Every
mistake that we made ended up in our net and the chances we had, we didn’t
finish on and they did. They seemed to turn our scoring chances into our goals.
Again, we competed at a very, very high level and that’s the way we’re going to
finish the year.”
Stars defenseman Stephen Johns left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury
and afterward Hitchcock confirmed Johns might have a concussion.
After practice on Friday, Hitchcock said Johns will miss Saturday’s game, so
Julius Honka will replace him on the Stars’ blue line. Hitchcock said Johns
could miss at least the next four or five days, making his status for Dallas’
three-game road trip to California next week uncertain at best.
Dallas is just 1-7-2 in its last 10 games and Saturday will mark the Stars’
final home game of the season, making it only fitting that the organization will
honor franchise icon Mike Modano, who was originally selected first overall in
the 1988 draft by the Minnesota North Stars five years before that franchise
relocated to Dallas.
But all is not lost, at least not yet, for the Stars, who still maintain the
slimmest of hopes of making the postseason. Dallas would not only have to win
out, but the Stars would also need a lot of help.
Still, veteran center Jason Spezza isn’t giving up the fight, at least not
until the Stars are officially eliminated.
“Five-on-five, we did a good job (on Thursday),” Spezza said. “We controlled
the play five-on-five. We gave up too much on the special-teams end. It’s hard
to win on the road that way.”
