Time to start putting your list together for the 14th-annual Celebrity Death Pool! Send me your 2020 list via PM or you can also post it in a reply here.

 

25 celebrities. Need to be someone fairly well-known. I'll notify you if someone on your list doesn't meet the criteria.

 

Lists are due by Monday, January 6th.

Wow. David Stern and Don Larsen.
(Point of clarification—these two cannot be added to our lists, obviously?)

Wyche I knew was getting worse, and he was on a preliminary cut of my list (which I've still not gotten done with family stuff). Much better coach than history will remember...

There are those that would argue, but for my money, no one was better. RIP drummer boy...

I just came across this today. Damn. The MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour was a staple in my household growing up. He was a remarkable journalist. Judy Woodruff has a great essay on him in today’s Washington Post op-ed page.
