    Ironic Deaths

    https://ria.ru/amp/20200105/1563122778.html. 40-year-old Russian oncologist and surgeon Andrei Pavlenko has lost his battle with stomach cancer this morning. His ordeal had been reported by RT a year or two years ago. I'm waiting for their obituary. Should I have posted this in "Famous for only being ill and dying"?

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    My assessment. Kirk - Super-old, so I think 80% chance of him dying. Trebek - Has stage 4 pancan, which means he's effed. 75% Alagiah - Has been battling colon cancer since 2014, he's trying to outlast my grandpa who had prostate cancer removed along with a chunk of his bowel in 2004-2005 (he was 73 then) and died only 11 years later, 65% Banali - Has pancreatic cancer and Looks frail, totally effed, 98% Andretti - Still battling colon cancer, 60%. Vialli - another pancan sufferer, 80% Scruton - has cancer and looks frail, 75 % Gibson - No info on his stage, but he's 84, 70%. Hastings - Has Pancan, but is running for re-election, might die shortly after re-election, my only team has been sent weeks before Lewis' diagnosis has been reported, 45% Vazquez - Has stage 4 lung cancer,but his condition is improving, 50% Ginsberg - Ruthie has survived 3 battles with 3 different types of cancer, but she's turning 87, so it might be her year, should've picked Bernard Tapie, 55%. Gastineau - Demented football player with early-onset Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and colon cancer, but the tumor has been removed, 60% Smith - The cancer has spread to his brain, and it's up to no good, so 95% Weir - Has MND, but Judging by Hawking's longevity, he may make it to 76,I should've picked Jason Becker (neoclassical metal guitarist), so 40% Kulkov - Has stage 3 esophageal cancer, but the tumor has been removed and he's been discharged 3 weeks ago, if he survives this year, he's certainly a goner in 2021-early 2022, 45% Zavorotniuk - If the rumors that she has brain cancer are true, it's 85%, if the tabloids are lying and she's just tired, then it's 0,001%. Porridge - They can't fight leukemia for too long, 65%. Gulpilil - Terminal lung cancer, certainly effed, 90% Smullen - Pancreatic cancer has returned, 85% I think . I think my score won't be less than 105 What are your assessments of your teams?
