Sorry Don Pardo, You're My Next Contestant (Yes, I'm going to hell)

    Two weeks after my sister picks up almost $700 in a dead pool when Glenn Ford dies, I entered the pool myself for the first time.

    My choice (drawn from a bowl. . . it wasn't my choice) is Don Pardo, the voice of Saturday Night Live since its inception in 1975 (and a number of other projects).

    Don is 88 and as near as I can tell, is in good health.

    The pool is at $940.

    I have just three things to say to BYH. . .

    1. Great signature quote by Homer Simpson. I laughed when I saw it for the first time the other day and I laughed again today.

    2. Holy shit, you have almost 20,000 posts. I'm pushing it to get to my miniscule total of 800+

    3. I already said that I'm going to hell. (at least I don't have Barbara Bush like my sister does).

    Oh, come ON. If you're not in a dead pool, you're not a journalist. ;)

    Sitting steady here with Scott Weiland.

    I don't think that's what he meant... We've had them in the past...

    I had a friend who was in one where if someone died you had to subtract their age from 100 and that was how many points you got... It was a little more interesting than just picking a bunch of people in their 90s...
  10. Phil Rizzuto would be a good draft pick.

    And Gerald Ford, who averages 3-4 hospital visits a year.
