Couple of sports deaths recent days

Connie Hawkins 75 NBA https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/07/o...kins-dead.html

YA Tittle 90 NFL http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...er-dies-age-90

Don't think either results in a hit. Though I think I've seen Tittle in other years.

Y. A. Tittle: DEAD!

Tittle led the NY Football Giants to three NFL titles after being discarded by the San Francisco 49ers. He played 17 years as quarterback in the NFL, retiring at age 39, completing 2,427 out of 4,395 passes for 33,070 yards and 242 touchdowns, with 248 interceptions. He also scrambled for 39 touchdowns. He died October 8 at the age of 90.

The Arbitrary gets a unique hit. We officially beat last year's body count with the QB's death.

Gord Downie: DEAD!

The Canadian musician was part of the "Tragically Hip" band of high school friends that became one of the best known bands from Canada. When he found out he was terminally ill, he announced his malady, then joined the band for a farewell tour that ended in the band's birthplace, Kingston, Ontario. Though our poll doesn't consider his a tragic death, the inspirational musician died at age 53.

Maphisto's Sidekick, Wannabe Actuary, Werewolf, working girl, yankeetripper, Patience made him the "hip" pick to pass this year, paying attention to the tragic announcement in 2016. Patience inches closer to Wannabe Actuary for first place.
