Some may call us sick for doing this. but we're not as sick as some of our picks,

Played for years on another board before 2012. I remember back for 2006 my brother told me about Ironhead Heyward who I didn't know was ill. Liked him as a player. Big points for him.
Yeah, I noticed that the two years that I led for even a part of the year were (1) your last sub-400 point year, and (2) the year you didn't play. 'Nuff said.

Two is a record for me. Last year I only got one, and before that I think* none.

*though I might be misremembering, maybe I did get one long ago...

Looks like we missed one:

Al Reinert, director and producer of "For All Mankind" as well as cowriter of Apollo 13.

And we missed another one, though this one wasn't announced until this year:

Carlos Sánchez, AKA Juan Valdez, dead at 83.

Neither were listed, so no change in points

NM. Wrong thread entirely. What's this doing up at the top again?

'Cause some people died in 2018 who weren't announced until 2019. Didn't affect the standings, but still a good placed to record it.

(Of course, by asking such a question, you're also asking for someone to bump the thread back up, thus subverting your intention of not wanting the thread bumped to the top.)
