And this is why, when you quickly post just before you run out to a NYE party that you include an alternate. Is it too late to replace one of my duplicate Michael J Foxes with Mary Barry (who I had demoted to be an alternate ... it wasn't to be) ?

And of course today I remember who I meant to include on my list but had never added to my word document. Oh well, hopefully they will live to be on another year's list.

Happy New Year everyone!

Don Larsen died on January 1, 2020, at the e of 90.

Larsen pitched the sixth perfect game in MLB history, doing so in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series. It is the only no-hitter and perfect game in World Series history. He was the last surviving member of that Yankees 1956 World Series championship team.

John Karlen has died at 86. Those are 14 points I'd rather not have.

Karlen was amazing in his role as Willie Loomis, the miscreant who made the deadly mistake of opening a chained coffin looking for the Collins family jewels. Thank you John. You were awesome. RIP.
