    Ideas and possibilities for 2008

    I've searched the site for him and can't find any mentions of him, but Art Modell may be up for consideration in 2008. For those outside the US, Art was the owner of the American Football Cleveland Browns/Baltimore Ravens. Several years ago, Modell suffered a stroke and has been less and less visible publicly. I was talking to my father the other day and told me that he made a concrete delivery to Modell's mausoleum (which to date has cost US$1.5 million, which these days is about 100k in real money). It's no indication of further declining health, but it peaked my interest. As far as a UK obit, I'm pretty sure he won't get one since New York Giants owner Wellington Mara didn't get a UK obit that I can find. If you're in a death pool with wider criteria for points, Modell might be worth a look.

    Steve Fossett

    Search for Fossett could solve decades-old mysteries It took a rich guy (possibly) crashing his plane just outside the middle of nowhere to find up to a couple hundred old plane crash sites.

    Stephen Hawking

    It took one sick twist to put together a piece of Lego art like that... I love it.

    Don't even mention Montel. I've had MS longer than he has and I'm far from circling the drain. It's not a death sentence for anyone...unless someone really pisses me off about it.

    His face has gone from green to a lovely shade of blue. Sad, I actually liked watching his antics in WWF and WCCW.

    I think he would get an obit on bbc.co.uk. Someone like Peter Angelos (who owns the Baltimore Orioles) most likely wouldn't get an obit overseas, but Steinbrenner has owned the (unfortunately) most successful team in Major League Baseball since the '70's. Don't think I mentioned this - Go Red Sox!!!

    my only comment to that: ....wow...

    Saw her answering a couple questions on CNN the other day. She's visibly lost weight since announcing that she has bone cancer. She doesn't look like Tammy Faye on Larry King, but it was noticeable.

    Estelle Getty

    I think it's a kind way of saying "Not well. Can we change the subject please?" We all know she's going downhill and I'd hope for a hit in the next couple months, but not counting on it. Dementia is tough to predict unless you're looking at someone with it occasionally and have seen enough of dementia over the years.

    Tammy Faye Messner

    I watched that video during lunch at work...talk about a frightening bag of bones. She's still not skimping on the mascara in her final days/weeks/months/whatever. I only got through a little more than a minute of the CNN clip before I went to another page. I know this is cruel to say, but I was getting a little nauseous from looking at her.

    I remember that entrance...and couldn't stop laughing at that outfit he was wearing. I had the same curiosity when I was looking through the world's tallest people, and looked up Gonzalez. Just to get an idea, I'd refer anyone curious about what's possibly happening to him to look up Robert Wadlow (there's a video linked from his wikipedia entry) and Matthew McGrory (Big Fish, Devil's Rejects). Those two had acromegaly and I the only reference to 'giantism' is on an imdb site (obviously posted by fans), but in the only speaking role I could find for Gonzalez it doesn't sound like he has acromegaly. I know I can't look at an MRI of his to confirm it, but he doesn't sound like Andre the Giant, or McGrory in Big Fish or even Big Show Paul Wight (who I read had his pituitary tumor removed). This answers.com page hints that his health has been in decline for about 15 years. I've kept an eye out for that silly giant, but getting news on his health is tough. We'd have a better shot with (not a wrestler, so I won't go into it) finding declining health info on Manute Bol.

    Tammy Faye Messner

    If Tammy can hold off her passing until August 13th, I'd be 4 extra points happier. Let's be honest, we love her to death, but she just won't die.

    Robert Mugabe

    Is anyone else, with each new story coming out of Zimbabwe, reminded of the blood orgy scene in Event Horizon? Liberate tutame ex inferis (“Save yourself from Hell”)...for anyone wondering what the hell I'm referring.

    Luciano Pavarotting.

    Brief blurb on Pavarotti. Not much there, and it's from the New York Post, which might as well be a tabloid.
