Celebrity Dead Pool

Postby Walt » Sat Aug 16, 2008 1:10 am

This is what I like to call The Ultimate Final Fantasy League. The rules are easy.

1. Sign up here.
2. Once you have an account, pick people you think will be dead within a year.
3. Post your list here.
4. You can add and remove people from your list if you get a hunch.

Here are my picks.

1 Bob Barker Game Show Host The Price Is Right
2 George H.W. Bush Head of State 41st US President,
3 Jimmy Carter Head of State 39th US President, 1977-81
4 Fidel Castro Head of State Dictator of Cuba
5 Michael Jackson Singer King of Pop 13-Aug-1958
6 Leonard Nimoy Actor Commander Spock on Star Trek
7 William Shatner Actor Captain Kirk on Star Trek
8 Patrick Swayze Actor Dirty Dancing
9 Elizabeth Taylor Actor Cleopatra 2
10 John Travolta Actor Saturday Night Fever

SCORE=0

Travolta flies airplanes all the time. Sam Jackson isn't a spring chicken. But you have a GREAT list!

Did you sign up?

1 Dom DeLuise Actor Portly Cannonball Run star
2 Kirk Douglas Actor Spartacus
3 Phyllis Diller Actor The original female stand-up comic
4 Morgan Freeman Actor Unforgiven
5 Stan Lee Cartoonist Created Spider-Man and The Hulk
6 Ed McMahon Talk Show Host The Tonight Show
7 Michael Caine Actor The Cider House Rule
8 Max von Sydow Actor The Exorcist

I had tons to start with, but had a heck of a time narrowing it down to only 10. I may end up changing a few over time, as I get a hunch here and there, but this is my starting list.

I may swap Stan out soon, as he is in pretty good health. The wife convinced me to swap out Morgan Freeman with Don Rickles though. Morgan just bounced back from a car injury pretty good, so I think he is safe for a couple more years. We'll see how the others pan out.

Rules-Clarifications

It was asked so here's an answer. No doubling up. Your list cannot contain a person already on someone else's list.

You can trade people.

Ok, here is my revised list. I didn't originally know we couldn't have any the same, but am happy to comply. I have just been really busy lately...sorry for the delay.

1 Dom DeLuise - Actor
2 Kirk Douglas - Actor
3 Phyllis Diller - Actor
4 Jerry Lewis - Comic
5 Stan Lee - Cartoonist
6 Michael Caine - Actor
7 Keith Richards - Guitarist
8 Don Rickles - Comic
9 Max von Sydow - Actor
10 Queen Elizabeth II - Royalty Queen of England

You got to admit that Keith Richards has looked dead for years, so he has got to be a good choice.
