    Your Least Impressive Celebrity Encounters

    I actually have quite a few famous brief encounters because I live in London and made several visits to the USA (mostly Seattle and Florida) Some of the encounters I remember Zerkaa (The Sidemen). Pretty sure the guy was drunk when I encountered him so did not bother. Sporty Spice (Mel C). Not as bad as an encounter as you would think. Had a brief chat with her then we went our separate ways. Kiwi cricketer Ross Taylor during the Kiwi's tour of England in 2015. Pretty cool guy to have a conversation with. Another cricketer, Alex Hales. Had a nice brief chat with him. Also encountered Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, again he seemed like a nice guy and I quickly said hello to him. Kenny Baker (R2D2). Encountered him couple of years before his death in London. Just an awesome guy, had a great conservation with him and talked about Star Wars and R2D2 stuff (obviously). Definitely my favorite encounter on the list. I also had really, really brief encounters with Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys) and George Russell (the racing driver), as in I saw them from a distance. If your interested in BGT. Might as well make it known that Marc Spelmann is a distant family friend and I have met him twice, pretty cool guy to hang out with actually.

    It's been around 1 and a half years since this list was made and majority of these guys are dead, can you give a new updated list (especially curious about Jean Pierre Jabouille)?

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory marks its 50th anniversary this year. 4 of it's child stars (Paris Themmen, Michael Bollner, Julie Dawn Cole and Peter Ostrum) are still alive and are in their 60s while only one Oompa Loompa (Rusty Goffe, now in his 70s) is left standing. They could be good picks to consider for a death pool team.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Damn it you nearly gave me a heart attack, at least you could have clarified that it was not "THAT" Amanda Holden who died.....

    Mikis Theodorakis

    Damn this one hits close. My uncle and aunt saw in person Mikis Theodorakis perform at the opening ceremony of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics while they were on their honeymoon. Mikis conducted a song called "Romiossini", which was sang by soprano Agnes Baltsa (who is still alive at 76 years old, just letting you know) and they were blown away by the performance. It still remains my aunt's favorite memory from that day and started my aunt's love for opera. https://youtu.be/IzGCXdX6gig?t=8823 shows Mikis Theodorakis. The full performance of Romiossini is from 2:25:29 to 2:29:26

    Astronauts

    Hubble Space Telescope commander Loren Shriver is someone to consider for Death pools, not in a good shape anymore it looks like https://www.eptrail.com/2021/07/19/col-loren-shriver-honored-by-town-board/. Plenty of early shuttle era astronaut appearances at this year's Spacefest convention and majority of them are going strong, especially Jack Lousma. However I noticed Mike Mullane, astronaut/author who is actually one of my favorite authors (I still have and read once in a while his book, Riding Rockets) looked a bit more frail in the convention.
  10. I say that Bill Wyman and Ronnie Wood will go soon enough, Mick Jagger in the next 2-3 years but Keith Richards? Keith Richards has cheated death so much, that I say that Keith will outlive the rest by many years (I think Keith will live to his late 80's)

    The Chequered Flag

    Nathalie Maillet. Former racer and current director of Spa Francorchamps, died after being shot by her husband https://jalopnik.com/nathalie-maillet-boss-of-spa-francorchamps-murdered-b-184748985. Quite a morbid way to go, even for a racer. NASCAR Dick Trickle is the only other racer I can think of to have died by gunshot (suicide in his case).

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    With Afghanistan in chaos, is it wise to start thinking about the fates of Afghanistan cricketers Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi?

    Baseball

    Groth's death leaves 10 baseball players who played in the 1940's that are alive (According to BR Bullpen). Eddie Robinson is 100 but is in decent shape. George Elder is also 100. The other 8 alive are Chris Haughey, Eddie Basinki, Tommy Brown, Carl Erskine, Larry Miggins, Cloyd Boyer and Bobby Shantz. All these guys with the exception of Robinson (who created a podcast) live private lives and have not had media mentions in basically forever.

    Kiwi Karkers

    I remember when I found out about this guy I spent hours finding out if he was somehow related to legendary rally driver Colin McRae, Never found anything to prove it though.

    Can't see him lasting beyond 2022. Reminds me a lot of Denise Nickerson (who died in her 60s as well) who like Ward was very healthy but suddenly suffered from a sudden onslaught of health conditions (massive stroke, overdosed on medication, contracted pneumonia while in ICU, then suffered a massive seizure and finally died).
