    Yes, much more so than colon cancer. I'd found an article about him and an attempt by family & friends to fundraise, to cover his medical expenses. The article's tone wasn't dire, but I wrote his name down for possible future use.

    Considered him for the Deathlist Cup, but figured he wasn't that close to dying.

    Got even sadder. Turns out you could've also put him in the 'Suicidal Celebs' thread and it wouldn't have been inaccurate. https://www.ok.co.uk/celebrity-news/1561501/muggy-mike-cause-of-death-thalassitis-love-island-suicide

    I was waiting for someone to pick up on that. Decided not to deliver the punchline to my own reference.

    Well, I guess we know which of the two proved more accurate.

    But, unfortunately (at least for now), no closer to the top spot. I had Manohar Parrikar in the AO Deadpool and the Deathlist Cup, but not the Derby Dead Pool. Will be interesting if he gets a QO for the DDP. At least four people had Parrikar here, so no bonus points.
