    I seem to have gotten distracted by Captain Chorizo's highlighting of the death of some old French woman. Where was I? Ah yes- the updated scoreboard. Gcreptile and The Quim Reaper continue to rack up the (?unwanted) hits and continue to lead the scoreboard in the first half of this contest. Death Impends and GUN also continue to add hits for bugger all points. The big winner this time round though is ZZZ, the boring predicable team made up of the most popular picks from all the players. 7 of the top 25 picks have gone early, leaping ZZZ up into 3rd place. Down at the bottom, Predictor has finally decided to get up of his/her arse and join the race, leaving only Ebless and Yorkshire Banker still tying their laces in the changing rooms. As always, if I have missed anyone, let me know.

    Alright, new update....mostly to say: Don't forget, the replacement period is coming up soon! After three more weeks, the game hasn't really picked up in speed. Yoo Sang-Chul was a very popular pick. Noel Conway a unique hit for Sean. Dingko Singh a clever hit for two teams. And that seems to be it! Rank Team Score 1 JoeyRuss 907 2 Cpt.

    Mark Robson, Canadian-born American filmmaker who directed the boxing classics "Champion" (1949) (one of the most celebrated boxing films of its era) and "The Harder They Fall" (1956) (notable also for being the Humphrey Bogart's final film) as well as such commercial blockbusters, died of a heart attack in London after completing his final film "Avalanche Express" on this date in 1978. He was 64 years old. Robson became producer of his own works from the 50's. "The Bridges At Toko-Ri" (1955) (film with torrential scenes of love between William Holden and Grace Kelly), "Peyton Place" (1957), "The Prize" (1963) (with Paul Newman) and "Valley of the Dolls" (1967) were among his most successful films. Mark Robson was interred in Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

    68 years since Julius & Ethel Rosenberg were executed as spies, at ages 35 & 37 respectively. Interesting article here on their sons campaign to clear Ethel's name, in which I discovered that they were adopted by Abel Meeropol (& his wife Anne), the composer of Deathlist favourite Strange Fruit.
