I feel ghoulish checking this thread every time a celebrity fies that I think is on my list.

It's not like there's money or a prize involved. It's an exercise in speculation.

I expected Valerie Harper to go first. Looking at the cast list from that show though, it could easily be any one of them. Just about all of them are on someones list here.

MTM was well before my time, but she always seemed hot back during her Dick Van Dyke Show days. Seemed like the classic girl-next door.

It's also someone's family losing a loved one. And don't start with the "well, you didn't personally know them" crap.

I don't think anyones going to be getting any enjoyment just because someone (with the possible exception of Charles Manson) dies that were on their list. I certainly didn't wake up this morning and hearing about the news and starting jumping for joy because I now have 38 points on the death poll. Some of the ones I picked on my list are ones I'm fans of and would hate it if they died. I would be just as happy if none of my picks turned out right and they were all still with us at the end of the year.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

We should have had a secondary pool for oldest survivors at the end of the year.

Yeah, I hope I come in last because most of the people on my list are awesome. I just chose them because they are old and awesome.

Also Mike Connors from the late '60 tv show Mannix dies today at age 91. I didn't even know he was still alive til he passed away.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

On the scoreboard as Prog Rock Icon John Wetton of Asia and King Crimson is dead
http://www.billboard.com/articles/co...g-crimson-asia


Had a scoop so to speak on that pick, when I saw an article about his former King Crimson bandmate passing last month it mentioned Wetton also had cancer.

Going to be funny when someone with the user name of Aaron Hernandez wins at a game of death.
