    The Counterculture of the 1960's

    Sonny Barger, a founding member of the Hells Angels and the author of the book 'Sons of Anarchy', has died. He was 83. A unique DDP pick, too. https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2022/06/29/sonny-barger-famous-hells-angel-and-bestselling-author-dead-at-83-of-cancer/

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    Although I very clearly still remain a dark horse - I'm "Fade to Black" and currently in 6th spot - what I do have is two young selections that nearly nobody else picked. Slick Woods has stage 3 skin cancer & is not on meds and Cornelius Price is in a long-term coma-like state from which he's never likely to improve. If the pair were to go this year, it's 22 points. Additionally none of the leaders has referee Tony Brown (stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis in April 2021). I might still need at least two more (Ronnie Atkins & Tim Keller are probably the best combo due to age & infrequency of selection), not to mention the top five scoring very little in the second half of 2022. Improbable, but not impossible. (And if by some miracle Dan Lacey ever gets a QO...)

He was 82. Pappin's two championships came with the Maple Leafs earlier in his career but spent the bulk of his time with the Black Hawks (as the team name was spelled, at the time).

    Two former WWE referees in three days. Despite their health issues, still a bit shocking at the proximity of their demise.

    Bodybuilders

    Bodybuilders don't have the best reputations when it comes to physical feature enhancement. While not all have resorted to artificial help, many have done so. The results may have produced large physiques, but they've also resulted in side effects, serious medical issues and even death. And since the latter is what this site is all about, perhaps it's time bodybuilders got their own thread.

    Wrestlers/actors

    Looks like while Triple H was recovering from his health problems and Stephanie McMahon was receiving a poor job performance, Vince McMahon might've been sowing his wild oats with one, or more, former employees. Hush money and more. Also caught up in the scandal is John Laurinaitis, the head of talent relations, who is the stepfather of the Bella Twins and brother of the late Road Warrior Animal. Not so much a health scare, unless Linda McMahon decides to take it out on her letch of a husband. https://www.wsj.com/articles/wwe-board-probes-secret-3-million-hush-pact-by-ceo-vince-mcmahon-sources-say-11655322722
