Charlotte Rae, Paul Laxalt, and Stan Mikita!

23-time draftees actress Charlotte Rae, Senator Paul Laxalt, and hockey great Stan Mikita helped August equal July’s death total already this week, leaving us at ages 92, 96, and 78, respectively! Rae’s lengthy career – including parts in Woody Allen’s Bananas and as Officer Leo Schnauser’s wife Sylvia on Car 54, Where Are You? – was capped in the ’80s by her role as Mrs. Garrett, first on Diff’rent Strokes and then The Facts of Life, for which she received an Emmy nomination. Laxalt served a term as Nevada’s governor before getting elected to the Senate, where he’d remain from ’74 through ’87. He made a quick, wildly unsuccessful stab at the presidency in ’88, before transitioning into chairing the campaigns of George H.W. Bush and Bob Dole. Mikita, of Wayne’s World fame, was one of the all-time greats in NHL and Blackhawks history, playing on the Stanley Cup winning 1961 team, and briefly holding a tie for the single-season scoring record. When he retired, he was the third leading scoring in NHL history, and entered the Hall of Fame in 1983.

Not a real place!

All three had spent time on Sarah’s teams over the years, but only Mikita was still on the leader’s squad, extending her formidable lead, while Capone manages to stay ahead of Dondos for third, both picking up points with 12 Year Woman Rae and Sen. Laxalt. The rich getting richer! Good job, folks!

Replacement picks due by next Wednesday!
