2020 Celebrity Death Pool


Wally Fairway

Recommended Posts

Since this is getting started so late in the year, entries will be accepted and valid if submitted before the end of the day Monday, January 6, 2020.
Pick 10 celebrities (a general guideline is that if they have a wiki page they are a celeb)
Points are 100 minus their age at death, you need to pick at least guess who is currently under 40

I am mainly sticking with my standard picks, until they are no longer eligible

- Joseph Ratzinger (aka the ex-pope) DOB 4/16/27)
- Orenthal James Simpson (notorious knife fanatic) DOB 7/9/47
- James E "Jimmy" Carter  10/1/24
- Sandra Day OConnor 3/26/30
- Jim Kelly 4/14/60
= Elon Musk 6/28/71
- Kevin Spacey 7/26/60
- Bill Cosby 7/12/37
- Bernie Madoff 4/29/38
- Pete Davidison 11/16/93

John Lewis (2/21/1940)

Lamar Odom (11/6/1979)

Jerry Sandusky (1/26/1944)

Dick Cheney (1/30/1941)

Alex Trebek (7/22/1940)

Go to Flair’s wiki page and read the health section. Pretty rough. 

Dick Cheney’s is 12 paragraphs but it started in 2000 so I doubt all the heart stuff catches up with him now.

There needs to be a rule that the celebrity in question cannot have a current terminal illness that has been publicly disclosed.  John Lewis and Alex Trabek should be disqualified.

Kirk Douglas and Olivia de Haviland are 103 years old, and I'm the only one who picked them?

Should I feel bad?

Well you lose 3 points if they die so that's a pretty poor pick

 

My 2019 class is still mostly alive

Clint Eastwood (89)

Wilford Brimley (85)

Elizabeth II (93)

Robert Mugabe (94) DEAD replaced with: Gary Busey (76)

Willie Nelson (86)

Loretta Lynn (87)

Bob Barker (96)

George RR Martin (71)

Bob Dole (96)

Shia LaBeouf (33)

 

6 points was a pretty bad board in 2019, but at least it was the most deserving on the list.

I had KD on the list until I saw it wouldn't score very high.  I wasn't ballsy enough to take off Betty White and Shirley MacLaine and put on a couple of longer-shots I like, Artie Lange and Dustin Johnson.
