Gord Downie, aged 53, passed away last night.

Tragically Hip's Gord Downie dead at 53 - Entertainment - CBC News

Lots of points allocated around for this one:
bats (joker)
DaveLovesDee (joker)
Dorothy
haggis88
JGK
Oakvillian
SchnookoLoly
withabix
tootlepootle (joker)

47 points for the regular picks, 94 for the jokers.

That has also shaken up the standings. Current leaderboard:
1) DaveLovesDee - 279
2) SchnookoLoly - 241
3) haggis88 - 155
4) bats - 128
5) withabix - 105
6) Oakvillian - 102

New picks required! Either fill in yourself in the red boxes on the spreadsheet, or post it here and someone will fill in for you!!

Edited to add: For those who squabbled about BBC not likely to report his death and we should only have BBC has the official death source etc etc etc: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41669610

Mr Norbert Stiles, erstwhile footballist, is my replacement pick. I thought he would be older than 75 - but then I suppose he was still quite a young man when at the height of his fame, only 24 at the time of England's world cup victory.
