    The Dead of 2021

    I have had the same thought about bodybuilders. I've never started a thread, so haven't been motivated to do one. But, this is one category that has crossed my mind to do. I think a good case can be made for bodybuilders having their own thread. They aren't martial arts participants and they seem to die off at a younger median rate than the general population. Perhaps, now is the time. Let me see if I can figure this out.

    Although it's becoming more and more of a long shot to win in 2021, I'm not yet done. I had Franck Olivier, the Belgian singer who now becomes part of the 'Curse of the Eurovision' (which is also where an obit link can be found). He was a solo, worth 13 points (8+5).

    Slightly off-topic, but after a little research I've noticed there are a few Hockey Night in Canada on-air personalities from years past who are at least 80 and still alive. According to Wikipedia, HNIC is the longest-running sports show in the world, having debuted in 1952. So, it's not surprising this is the case. Here is the list, from oldest to youngest, with their date of birth: Brian McFarlane - August 10th, 1931 Dick Irvin Jr. - March 4th, 1932 Don Marshall - March 23rd, 1932 Bob Cole - June 24th, 1933 Scotty Bowman - September 18th, 1933 Don Cherry - February 5th, 1934 Jim Robson - January 17th, 1935 Harry Neale - March 9th, 1937 Jiggs McDonald - November 28th, 1938 Bobby Hull - January 3rd, 1939 Lou Nanne - June 2nd, 1941.
