Traded his Red Wings for Angel Wings

Hockey coach Bryan Murray has died at the age of 74, and 2 players picked him: Kevin Byrnes gets his second hit in 4 days, and his sixth hit of the year, even further extending his lead.
However, Bob Razem isn't content to let that lead extend too far, as he snags his fourth hit to keep right on Kevin's heels at 2nd place.

Congrats, Kevin and Bob!

Jimmy Casino gets his third hit, while Mike Spinney, News Guy Craig and Carol Ann Roke each get their second. Finally, Katy Conlin's List 2 and Me picked up our first hit.

Congratulations, all!
