Picklesworth was correct on Nancy Reagan and Harper Lee
Fearless Maria was correct on Craig Sager
Ace Commenter Brian (are you out there?) was correct on Fidel Castro
So this year, we are doing things as follows:
- If you are already competing, you get to keep your current picks and add one more individual, for a total of seven entries. If you have picks that have already died, you retain credit for those.
- If you are not in, you can join and pick up to seven names not already in the pool
- It's first come, first served, so get your names in by the end of the day on Monday, Jan. 2. You can post your picks in the comment section of this entry
- If someone dies before Jan. 2 and they are not already on your list, they don't count
Rules of thumb:
- You can pick Sid Hartman, but he's going to bury us all
- Ditto for Keith Richards
- We do not wish anyone to die, but we all enjoy being freelance actuaries
My additional pick for 2017 is Don Rickles. Now, the floor is yours. Play on, playas.
