I might try an NFL theme this year. Many of those guys don’t live long lives. After 0 points in 2014, heck, it can only get better, right?

And you didn’t work Chrissie Hynde into your list? She’s 63 years old…
Question to the OP. CAN I INCLUDE MYSELF? (I’m serious). Do tell.
Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin.
Looks like it’d be against rule 3(e):
Being “weird” is questionable. I want something de·mon·stra·tive. I challenge the OP!
But … but … What if I’m famous…? C’mon, C’mon, confess…
I won’t push this anymore.
Hey, give it a shot, let’s see what Baker says about this.
Nope, Little Pig can’t include themself.
Because, hey, that would be weird.
But think of his potential dying words: “I’m about to pick up XX points on the Straight Dope Celebrity Death Pool!”
Of course there’s the Catch-22 that by the time he actually racked up the points, he’d no longer be aware he’d done so. Seems like kind of a waste.
Which raises an interesting question ----- are there any Dopers famous enough to actually be picked as legit celebs? But that’s probably already another thread.
And the Oscar goes to…
