    341 teams in and loaded up - another 50 emails waiting to be entered, some with more than one team, but they're coming in faster than I can enter them now so time to stop and catch up next year. Have a Happy New Year everyone! Cheers, GUN

    Well that's that. The Inverse Dead Pool has closed its curtains for another year and it was a classic season with @BabyBlue Artie Shaw/Sadhana-ing their way to the top in the last week of the year. Not bad at all for a team that was joint 38th in early February when Susan Bayh died! But what seemed like a costly mistake then (Bayh was worth 15 points) ultimately survived the "marathon not a sprint" aspect of most dead pools, with BabyBlue only further scoring two further hits - Yoo Sang-chul in June, and Betty White on New Year's Eve. They gradually climbed up the leaderboard thanks to avoiding landmines like Murray Walker, Sarah Harding, and Greg Gilbert, but it was the dramatic last-week death of Desmond Tutu that allowed them to take the lead, in a tiebreaker with machotrouts, which soon became a solitary lead as macho placed Betty White higher than BabyBlue. And said machotrouts is a name who you'll be getting very familiar with in the sphere of the Inverse Dead Pool. He won in 2018, considerably outpaced his mum with a podium place in 2021, and starting this year will be the Inverse Dead Pool's new host. Yep, after four years of keeping everyone's favorite live pool ticking, my new co-hosting of the DDP meant sacrifices had to be made, and thus it was time to pass the Inverse baton. As the man himself admits, macho continues the time-honored tradition of our pool being hosted by someone who is alive, so we're undoubtedly in good hands. Play us out, BabyBlue...

    He is referring to competitive teams. It is getting harder and harder to find uniques who are under a certain age, likely to die, and will get a qualifying obituary. It could be worth it even if the pick is old, but there is a risk that a nonagenarian unique hopeful is chosen by another team as well. Suddenly, you go from 9 points to a mere 5. I highlighted in green the kind of uniques that most title conteders dream of in an updated version of a venn diagram I did a few years ago. You want to find someone who is notable enough to score, yet not so famous that everyone else will immediately notice that they are really ill. So, on the right side of the "sick-famous" border.

    There's a 9-second (new?) clip here at 0:08. Can't really judge a lot on it but looks great, sounds a bit frailish. Her 100th birthday is in a month and there will be some kind of a special movie event in which she will be joined by a couple of celebs including Robert Redford, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno and Carol Burnett.
