For some of us he might better be known as "Super Dave Osborne."

Tough start to the year! I think I would have had only one of those considered for my list (Okerlund's health took a major downturn at the end of 2018), but crazy to start off with a few that reasonably could have been on lists so fast in the year.

My mom always said I'd be good in that job. Maybe that's part of why I've done fairly well the last few years?:ph34r:

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

What’s the appropriate etiquette for rooting for your “team” here?

Root away, but beware of karma.

 

That said, a good portion of my list is a wish list ...
