In no particular order:

(0) Kenny from South Park
---good chance of gaining points every week. #0 because he probably doesn't count

(1) Scott Weiland
 ---velvet revolver on tour and drug habit, the real poll should be how many dates he survives

(2) Michael Jackson
---well there's prison and suicide

(3) Dick Clark
---not dropping the new year's ball, what's left to live for?

(4) Rick Majerus
---when coaching is too much of a health risk, the ice is thin

(5) Nancy Reagan
---it's the spouse dies soon after theory

(6) Clint Eastwood
---sure doesn't look or sound too good

(7) Shane MacGowan
---someone who I'm sure could drink me under the table.  

(8) Peter O'Toole
---see #7, plus he's old

(9) Ron Santo
---way too many health problems, not making the Hall is taking it's toll

(10) Hulk Hogan
---pro wrestling and long life don't seem to go together

---------------------------------------

just missed the cut:
Adam Ant --- I hear he's a mess but just didn't have enough
Dana Plato --- looked her up and found out she's already dead, go figure
John Popper --- found out he had gastric bypass surgery
Jack Lalane --- not many points and doesn't look like he's going anywhere

Shane MacGowan's an inspired pick.  Wish they'd release If I Should Fall from Grace with God domestically on CD, cuz I don't feel like shelling $25 for an import.  Loved the vinyl.

That's one of the CDs I lost to a ex-girlfriend.  I still have the folow-up (Peace and Love) but it's not as good.

soon as I get a chance I'll add my other 10 names.  I also plan on using my one drop to drop the Hulkster.  I hear that he's in great shape and now would be the time to change that pick.

OB...please try to get your list updated ASAP.  It's cool this time, but going forward, I'd like to limit the updates to the 1st of every month only.  Thanks man.

I've been procrastinating finishing my list but I was tired of people dying and not having a complete list.  So I finally updated my list by adding 10 names and dropping Hulk Hogan (who's looking pretty healthy).

(10) Margret Thatcher
(11) Queen Elizabeth II
(12) Muhammad Ali
(13) Adam Ant
(14) Vern Troyer
(15) Stan Lee
(16) Steven King
(17) Mikhail Gorbachev
(18) George Hamilton
(19) Whitney Houston
(20) Art Donovan

OB...I will add your second 10 to your first 10 names.  However, you can't change Hulk Hogan to Margaret Thatcher until 8/1/05.  Individual changes are only allowed on the first of the month.

If you want, I can note it now that on the first of August, I should change Hogan to Thatcher, in case you're not around at that time or you forget.  That way, you don't miss out.

Cool?

allright, but you'll be sorry when Hulk dies on July 31st and then Thatcher dies on August 1st.

Just wanted to mention that I should have Thatcher instead of Hulkster.

And, though it might be considered cheating since I'm stealing a pick several others here made recently, I'm taking Natasha Lyonne instead of George Hamilton.

I missed adding Coretta King by one day so tomorrow I want to replace Steven King with Jeff Conaway.

I caught that train wreck on VH1s fat club show last week and have to add him.

a day ago I would have added Kirby, heartless but a true...

I'll have to see who recently took a turn for the worse.




I hear Pokey Reese is missing but it doesn't sound bad yet.

O.K. replace Dana Reeve with Al Davis.  He sure didn't look too good on tv the other day.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.  Looks like one of those 100 year old tortoises.  Was that a little melanoma on the lip, Al?

Anyway, he helped get the CBA in place.  Thanks Al.  You can die now.

He's on my reserve list, if someone croaks he's a strong possibility.
