    I miss it.....
    How about we bring it back......with a twist.
    Sign up. Have a "Draft" just like a real sport and each player gets 2 or 3 picks. With extra "nominees" the pool should go faster, even with fewer players. No duplicate picks. Each player would have unique choices. All other rules would be the same.
    Draft order would be reversed for Round 2.

    KOB#40 gets an honorable mention for consistently picking Jake LaMotta back in the day.

    Hugh Hefner finally went. I just assumed he had achieved immortality.

    Same to be honest. I really thought this day would never happen.
     
  8. Keith Richards has achieved immortality,

    for every cigarette you smoke god takes one hour off your life and gives it to Keith Richards

    we as a society should be concerned about global warming, we need to consider the kind of world we will be leaving behind for Keith Richards

    After Lemmy finally passed, I realized there is no such thing as immortality......

    Keith will go someday.

    Ozzy is still around too. Sometimes life makes no sense.

    I hope the mortician leaves Hef with a smile on his face, it would only be right.

    Fittingly, Hef went on "Hump" day
     
  12. Hef is the only person in the history of man, that has died and we truly cannot say "he's in a better place now"

    Monty Hall passes at the age of 96.

    I bet they put him in a crpyt with 3 doors.

    I forget who used to pick him all the time, but Y. A. Tittle has died.

    Y.A. Tittle, Quarterback Who Led Giants to 3 Title Games, Dies at 90

    By RICHARD GOLDSTEIN
    OCT. 9, 2017

    Y. A. Tittle, the Hall of Fame quarterback who led the Giants to three consecutive National Football League championship games in the early 1960s after the San Francisco 49ers had discarded him as too old and too slow, died on Sunday night in Stanford, Calif. He was 90.
    ...

    In August 1965, when Tittle approached the first autumn since his junior high school days when he would not be throwing a football, he likened himself to a warrior who had seen his last battlefield.

    “It will be a strange fall for me,” he told Sports Illustrated. “For 27 years, from September to December, I have put on my armor and gone out to engage in what is, really, a sort of warfare. This fall I'll be attending to my insurance business.

    “I'm too old to give it one more shot. But I wish I could.”
