If it helps at all, Litsa Menounos was 65. She would've been 66 this year if my notes are correct.

Book gave me a birthyear of 1954. So maybe there's a year difference or so? Though I think we've got a general idea of her age in any case, let's hope that 1 point doesn't matter in the end.

Alright, let's go for an update before I forget that André Maranne died and he already did so in April.

There were also Anne Buydens and Litsa Menounos.

 

But that's it! Some pretty quiet two weeks:

Norman Lloyd is a hit for a few of us here.

Another small update, it seems we picked the wrong ones lately. Still, the one big change is at the top, where JoeyRuss passes Cpt. Chorizo because of the pick of Rachel Zoll. So we have a new leader!

There was also popular pick Norman Lloyd.

And strangely, that seems to be it! Two hits in 4 weeks! The biggest drought this pool has ever seen. Or did I miss anyone?

 

But before I show the scoreboard, I want to remind you that the replacement period is on July 1st, in one month! You can replace five current names on your team by five new ones on that day.

I will also replace two members of my team on the day before, as a reminder for you and a small benefit for me, the host.. I will choose two widely known names that can be expected to be on everyone's subs bench anyway.

Don't feel obliged to pick my names. Last year, Derek Draper and Alessandro Zanardi - that was a bust.... And you don't need to replace anyone if you don't want to.

 

Anyway, here are the scores:

1 JoeyRuss 836
2 Cpt. Chorizo 835
3 Salmon Mousse 748

I imagine Yoo Sang-chul will be points for pretty much everyone

This might be a dumb question, but is it allowed to substitute out non-obits?

In the past it was made clear that they would not be allowed to be swapped out. There was a reason I didn’t swap out folk like Lucien Barbarin or Jamie Frierson last year

Indeed, no swapping out of dead people - I thought I had written that in the rules...will be added.

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!

Alright, just two new hits in the last days, Jon Hassell for me and Enrique Bolanos for the crafty Salmon Mousse - who is so close to the top he can taste it:

But the main attention goes to me, opening up the replacement period.

 

As an example, I will now exchange two (living) names on my team with two new ones.

As the host, my new names will be two widely known names who can be expected to be picked frequently by others as well.

 

So I drop:

Suzy Friton

Constantino Chiwenga

 

And replace them with:

Deborah James (Bowelbabe)

James Michael Tyler.

 

You may now also replace up to five names on your team, and you may do so until the end of tomorrow GMT.

 

You can replace a bad joker, but not pick a new one by the way.

You cannot replace dead but non-obiting people. Neither can I .... :sigh:

I see you replaced two people. But you can actually replace up to five people if you want to. The two people is my disadvantage as host.
