12th Annual Celebrity Death Pool

So, before I get the update up for this year, just checking to see if there's still interest in doing this... I'm good to continue it, but we've had a couple of uneventful years in the pool with low hits and a drop off in entries. It's not really as interesting if we're only going to have 1-2 hits each. So select one of these options here or by PM:
  1. Keep it as is! Stick with 10 picks each.
  2. Up the lists to 20 celebrities, so we get some new blood in as picks and more hits during the year!
  3. Meh, I'm over it.
Thanks, lawtalking friends.

Keep it as it is. I'd never get around to picking 20 names! As it is I'll likely re-use all my survivors this year.

Re: 12th Annual Celebrity Death Pool

After some consideration, I think this may have run its course. With responses from only 3 posters here, I don't think it's worth my time. If people want to come up with their own lists and post and monitor them on this thread, we can do an unofficial pool this year. I'll probably throw together a list of my own tomorrow to add here. I'm not sure I'm going to participate in the big pool I've been doing for years, though there are some new names I've been monitoring the last few months...

Re: 12th Annual Celebrity Death Pool

I just finished my list without checking the forum. So I'll post it for purely historical purposes:

1. Zsa Zsa Gabor
2. Muhammed Ali
3. Joey Feek
4. Olivia de Havilland
5. Fidel Castro
6. Glenn Campbell
7. Kirk Douglas
8. Valerie Harper
9. Bill Cosby
10. Lamar Odom

Given that there is no official pool this year, I suppose they'll all drop like flies!

For a few years I was in one ran by Paigow's sister on FB. I backed out when I learned that Paigow is actually the mentally healthy one (except for the self-destructive date with Slave) in her family.

A FB revival might get some new blood in here. I can't set it up, I'm an idea man, not a nuts and bolts guy. But it shouldn't be to hard. Thoughts?
