Might as well start a new year.

 

I am going with Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

I hate checking this thread when it shows there was a new post made. Also hate guessing correctly. To no deaths in 2020!

My guesses:

Quincy Jones

Tommy Lasorda (insane he’s 92)

Bill Russell

Jerry Lee Lewis

Larry Holmes

Olivia De Havilland

Eileen Ash

Josh Hamilton

RBG is an obvious choice every year until she does pass. Too many health scares in 2019.

Josh Hamilton is a good pick, as well. That guy seems to have fallen off the wagon again.

She’s “only” 86.....thought she was older.

I listed 2 people older than Kirk Douglas lol

Hamilton just can’t escape his demons, wish he could.

With a sad heart I have to say, Bobby Knight. 

 

Apparently he is not doing very well.

Kirk Douglas is 104.  No chance he makes it to 105, is there?

Box Leon Spinks sounds like he's on his way out.  I'll go with him.

And I think this could be the year for Bob Barker, Betty White, Bob Dole and Jimmy Carter.  I feel like I say them every year.

Sam Wyche passed away around noon today.  The man was a football and comedic genius.

Wyche was only 74

I lol’d when he stuck it to Cleveland over the PA system. An incredible insult to a city and funny to everyone else

Not a good start to the year for sports-ball types. Lost a legit name in basketball, baseball and now football and we're only on Jan. 2.
