    Nicole Ritchie might be a good bet. And Mike Tyson.

    Lindsey Lohan?

    Wasn't Dan Fogelberg diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer a couple years ago?

    Oh, and David Carr if he doesn't get out from under the Texans offensive line after this season.

    Now THERE'S a suggestion that would fuck with my karma big time.

    And TwoGloves, thanks for the Tammy Faye tip. Totally forgot about her.

    Here are some wildcard picks:

    Will Ferrell -- the Ignatius J. curse strikes again
    George W. Bush -- ain't exactly the best liked man on Earth
    Refrigerator Perry -- ain't getting smaller

    Some more conventional picks:
    Billy Graham
    Andy Griffith
    John Paul Stevens
    Bob Feller
    Al Davis

    and I think Jerry Lewis should be a stone-cold lock for your pool.

    EDIT: I meant to say Dick Clark should be a lock. But Lewis is a good pick as well.

    Dick Clark sounds great on the radio.

    Britney's c-section scar. Her dignity expired in 2006.

    - John Wooden

    - Farrah Fawcett

    - Jerry Lewis

    - Axl Rose...honestly, what's more probable -- death or the release of Chinese Democracy?

    I'm not defending Hondo here or anything, but a game based on when people -- people, mind you -- die is good times, but a joke about drowning puppies in a sack isn't cool? Again, not defending Hondo, just curious.

    David Cutcliffe would be a good choice to get you a lot of points.

    Apples and oranges. Death is a (usually) natural part of life. Murder is not.
