Sir Jack Brabham Showing once again to trust your instincts when picking potential stiffs for your team rosters, Sir Jack was having some serious health issues and was on my radar but for some reason I did not play him on any of my rosters for 2014.

Robert Sallee Age 82. A special missed opportunity selection for me, Mr Sallee was the last living survivor of the Mann Gulch fire of 1949. He was born just 13 days after my own father who in 1949, was 18 years old, like Mr Sallee, his whole life in front of him. Mr Sallee was lucky enough to live to be an old man, like my father. Most of his buddies were not so lucky. If you have never heard of the Mann Gulch fire it is worth reading the fantastic book “Young Men and Fire” about the tragic deaths of all but three smoke jumpers who parachuted into the Montana wilderness in summer 1949 to fight a fire and were killed by the fire instead. Sallee and two others were the only ones to out race the fire and survive. I've been playing Mr. Sallee, on and off, on some of my Death Pool rosters ever since I started partaking in these morbid affairs. I didn't play him this year of course, though he did enter my mind when picking my 2014 rosters, as he always did. People like Sallee and Stolier fascinate me because as “last living survivors” of historic events, they are the only ones who can still talk to us about what happened. When they die, the event passes from living memory, into history. Goodbye Mr Sallee, now you can join the rest of your fellow smoke jumpers, young men who died way back in 1949, far too young to be left on a lonely and desolate Montana mountain.

04/25 Earl Morrall Baltimore Colt and Miami Dolphin quarterback Earl Morrall died at the age of 79. Morrall may have been the man who threw Super Bowl III when the Colts played the New York Jets in the game Joe Namath “guaranteed” the Jets would win against the heavily favored Colts. If he did throw the game for the Jets, thus opening the door for the merger of the upstart American Football League with the NFL, he took it to his grave. But one thing is for sure - Morrall was the QB behind the 1972 undefeated Miami Dolphins team, an accomplishment no other NFL QB can claim (an undefeated/untied season). Morrall was QB for most of the 17 games the Dolphins won that year, and earned both Player of the Year and Comeback Player of the Year honors, which he richly deserved.

We, however, are still unsure who fired the bullet that hit the sidewalk that broke off a chunk of concrete that hit Tague.

Attentive death poolers might have noticed that Hoffman was in and out of drug rehab last year, but showed no signs of going Jimmy Hendrix on us. So nobody played him on their rosters.
