...thus, opening the door for someone to "poach" these lists and create a "Tom, Dick, and Harry" list!

For years, I've been saying that if I ever did a themed list, it would consist of BASE jumpers. They're mostly fairly young, and are engaged in a dangerous sport. (For example, Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov, who would have otherwise been on this list, died in a jump last month.) So here's a list of 13 of the better-known jumpers, plus an alternate because I really might need one.

Zak Tessie
Matt Gerdes
Chris Douggs McDougall
Jeb Corliss
Hank Caylor
Felix Baumgartner
Sean Chuma
Fred Fugen
Vince Reffet
Nasr al Niyadi
Omar al Hegelan
Livia Dickie
Ana Isabel Dao

Alternate:
David McDonnell

One thing I considered for a theme but dropped was Non-Dopers Pitted on the Dope. I just really liked the Bridge theme once it shot through my brain and I wasn't sure I wanted to go back through enough threads to find 13+3 who qualified as both celebrities and worthy for consideration.

In doing my research yesterday, I found an article that said a friend had checked him into rehab and that after he got out, he hadn't had a drink in 6 months.

I also had a themed list for 2017 and only my favorite person from that list made a FT for the last time. However, he gave me 10 points which is good for 100th place and I'm totally good with that as my favorite football coach just won his 100th game for MSU on Thursday night. So, I'm only replacing Jud.

Themed List: former head collegiate coaches, primarily Big Ten and a few others

Gus Ganakas 7/3/26 former coach of Michigan State
Lou Henson 1/10/32 former coach of Illinois
Gene Keady 5/21/36 former coach of Purdue
Thomas Dr. Tom Davis 12/3/38 former coach of Iowa
Robert Montgomery Knight 10/25/40 former coach of Indiana 3 time NCAA Champion 1976, 1981, 1987
Dick Bennett 4/20/43 former coach of Wisconsin
Clem Haskins 8/11/43 former coach of Minnesota
Steve Fisher 3/24/45 former coach of Michigan
James J O'Brien 4/9/50 former coach of Ohio State
Bill Carmody 12/4/51 former coach of Northwestern
Jerry Dunn 5/6/53 former coach of Penn State
Dick Vitale 6/9/39 former coach of University of Detroit
Jim Calhoun 5/10/42 former coach of Connecticut

Really don't think I need any alternates but wouldn't shed a tear if, particularly, the first 2 kicked off:
Michael Krzyzewski 2/13/47 former coach of Army
Roy Williams 8/1/50 former coach of Kansas
Gary Williams 3/4/45 former coach of Ohio State & Maryland

Names only:

Gus Ganakas
Lou Henson
Gene Keady
Thomas Davis
Robert Montgomery Knight
Dick Bennett
Clem Haskins
Steve Fisher
James J O'Brien
Bill Carmody
Jerry Dunn
Dick Vitale
Jim Calhoun

Alternates:
Michael Krzyzewski
Roy Williams
Gary Williams

I haven't looked at other posts, but I don't expect this to be a particularly unique list.

Donald Trump
Mike Pence
Mitch McConnell
Paul Ryan
Orrin Hatch
Steve Bannon
Scott Pruitt
Roy Moore
Charles Koch
David Koch
Rupert Murdoch
Robert Mercer
David Denniston Smith

Alternates:

Mercer is the money behind Trump, and Smith is the Chairman of Sinclair Broadcasting, an ultra-right wing media empire.

My Mary Tyler Moore Show theme returns, missing only Mary herself who gave me 20 points for 2017. Jack Bannon would have been worth 23 points when he passed in October, but was only an alternate. Mary gets replaced by John Gabriel, who was sportscaster Andy Rivers. He was hired, and dated by, Mary Richards.

I almost missed out. I'm guessing I get to do a themed list in this thread AND a regular list in the other?

"In a year in which a remarkable number of musicians died, my entire list survived. I suck at Death Pool. That noted, I'm going with the same list as last year. Theme is all musicians...."---Me, last year. I changed the alternates from wrestlers to musicians.



Paul McCartney
Mick Jagger

Willie Nelson
Jimmy Page
Meat Loaf
Charlie Daniels
Roger Daltrey
Ozzy Osborne
Bobbie Gentry
Don McLean
John Fogerty
Don Henley

I was fixing to do a "the accused of the #MeToo movement" list. But then I saw that psychobunny already had that well covered.

So my last second replacement is my I Hope the Cognitive Dissonance Will Make Their Heads Explode list. These are right-wing talkers and authors that just maybe will have a rough 2018 if events develop right?


Bill O'Reilly
Dinesh D'Souza
Glenn Beck
Jeanine Pirro
Joe Walsh
Laura Ingraham
Lou Dobbs
Mark Levin
Michael Savage
Michelle Malkin
Rush Limbaugh
Sean Hannity
Tucker Carlson

Scott Pruitt
Roy Moore
Charles Koch
David Koch
Rupert Murdoch
Robert Mercer
David Denniston Smith

Alternates:
Tom Cotton

Mercer is the money behind Trump, and Smith is the Chairman of Sinclair Broadcasting, an ultra-right wing media empire.
I should have mentioned in the post that, in case it's not blindingly obvious from context, I mean EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, and not the former IndyCar driver of the same name, whom I like and admire about a trillion times more than the other one.

candide,

Nitpick: June Lockhart wasn't in Leave It To Beaver, that was Barbara Billingsley, who died in 2010. June Lockhart was Lassie's mother But she's still worth eight points.

We have a total of 53 players in the "Themed" pool. Given that this is a Themed Pool, there are not a lot of celebrities with multiple picks.

Those with more than 2 picks:
Donald Trump 8
Mike Pence 4
Bob Newhart 3
Ed Asner 3
George HW Bush 3
Roy Moore 3
Scott Pruitt 3
Steve Bannon 3
Tommy Lasorda 3
Valerie Harper 3

czarcasm is off the early lead... working on adding the "theme" to the scoring columns, but waiting for assistance from my Excel guru friend. If anyone would like a copy of the Excel Scorekeeper I use, PM me you address, and I will send a share link to the DropBox folder that houses the Death Pool Scorekeepers.

Yabbut 13 points and the lead, right?

Hey, they aren't spring chickens. >45 years since the last time humans visited the Moon. Pretty unlikely that you'd succeed in keeping them *all* alive for another year.

Brian Bonsall was better known for the role. Steuer was only in one episode. He was better known in Grace Under Fire.

Was Steuer before Bonsall, or was he the one who showed up later in DS9?
