Ghoul Pool ’08 Update: Justin back in the lead

No, it wasn’t Dick Martin’s passing that put enfarcer back in first place; it was Sydney Pollack, the 73-year-old actor who passed away on Sunday from cancer, that scored for Justin. The 27 points earned from that pick gives him 30 total, putting him in front of nangbaby by nine points and yours truly by 21. He’s also the only person thus far to have two hits from his selections.

His replacement choice, culled from the remainder of his orignal draft list, is Donnie Iris, the 65-year-old guitarist primarily known for his work in Wild Cherry (“Play That Funky Music”).

    Not necessarily. Not every form of cancer is terminal; several forms are readily treated, even at Pollack’s age. In any case, I can’t find the specific type of cancer Pollack suffered from in any news story, so I can’t assume that it was a terminal form of it.
