Bereavement Pool: ROSTERS

It's four days past the deadline, so I'm going to assume I have all the entries. We got a very good response from Red Reporters and family members, and this year's pool will include 15 participants. I will be cashing checks and money orders tomorrow and inserting the pot (in cash) into the official Binding Bereavement Binder. The winner will get $120, second place $20, third place $10.

$$: Unique pick, worth 25-point bonus.
++: JD and wife entered only 15 picks, and each picked a person who was already dead. I got their entries right up against the deadline, so they have accepted their disadvantaged fate.
##: Replaced Steve Fossett.

A list of the most popular picks:

5  Charlton Heston       6
5  Ariel Sharon          6
7  Muhammad Ali          5
7  Farrah Fawcett        5
7  Stephen Hawking       5
7  Elizabeth Taylor      5
7  John Wooden           5
12 Pete Doherty          4
12 Elizabeth Edwards     4

15 George Steinbrenner   3
15 Abe Vigoda            3

Other multiple (2) picks: Bob Barker, Ernest Borgnine, George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Dick Cheney, Walter Cronkite, Roger Ebert, Queen Elizabeth, Louis Farrakhan, W. Mark Felt, Andy Griffith, Paul Harvey, Jesse Helms, Hamid Karzai, Courtney Love, Nancy Reagan, Keith Richards, Ron Santo, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Margaret Thatcher.

For integrity's sake, I e-mailed the picks made by me and my mom early (my roommate missed the first deadline, so I just posted him with everyone else.) Here is the full-disclosure e-mail address and password:
boobsisnotacheater@gmail.com
b00bsisnotacheater  (notice the zeroes).

As far as the Fossett pick and any other dusputable picks, here is my suggestion. If no one objects, I think they should be allowed to replace that pick, especially since they got their entries in early and I failed to notice. No one will lose uniqueness bonus points if they pick people who were unique selections for other people.

I would extend the same courtesy to any other picks that are in violation of the rules that I haven't noticed.

Update [2008-2-8 12:45:10 by boobs]: I edited the list to reflect Brian B and wife's new picks. JD's wife will still receive uniqueness bonus for Britney Spears since she was the only person to pick her as of the posting of the rosters.

I'm sure there are some other mistakes in here, but I hope I copied down everyone's roster correctly. Let me know if there's anything I screwed up and I'll get it fixed right away. Not that rooting for Soupy Sales to die is fun, exactly, but this oughta be pretty entertaining.

Good luck everyone!
