    Shadow DeathList Competition 2023

    When Anita Pointer died on the 31st I asked Rolf Harris be her substitute. On January first I made it clear that I was fine with the top two names on my sub list (Mirisch and Gala) going in for the recently deceased Walters and Benedict. The roster was finalized clearly at that point. While I somehow missed the request you sent, later on on the 1st, to repaste my list it didn't change anything about the team. Even with my missing the message (which yes, I did apologize for) the response, which clarified in bold each substitution that had been previously finalized, weeks before was itself sent well over a week ago (the 18th to be precise).

    Thought this was all already clarified, ages ago, before your last PM asking to post the team to the forum. Can't say I'm not slightly annoyed.

    I've made too many idiotic reading comprehension errors born from laziness. Glossed over the basics in favor of researching names. My apologies. Maybe I'll finally have the basics of this down by late December... when I'll no longer have any time to research.

    I do see an error with my theme team "The DOA Tour": Designated Peter Oosterhuis as my joker in the email submission but the site has the joker icon next to Al Geiberger instead.

    Was Jeanette Lee D40 last year? Can't remember.

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    Well, I see that the only two picks I had hoped would be unique aren't and also that Tilson Thomas somehow isn't Drop 40, which essentially makes him a worthless pick. Better luck next year, I guess. DiMeglio not being a solo really pisses me off, though.

    I can't imagine much more tragic than having Denny's as your final meal

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2023

    Only now that you mention it. Perhaps I need to start sleeping. I imagine my brain might work better on rest.

    Comedian and former Second City performer Michael Lehrer dead at 44. Decided to go the medically assisted suicide route 6 years into ALS.

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2023

    Well, in an effort to once again blow my wad way too early, I've already had my third hit: comedian Michael Lehrer at 44 Joins McGarvey and Vialli. Also noticed I forgot to designate a joker in my team submission PM. I assume this means the first name I listed is taken as joker?

    Still a bit perplexed by Diane, admittedly.

    First Celebrity Death You Remember

    You know what, I'm going to have to change my answer to this. Remember hearing it on the radio while being driven home from school.

    First Celebrity Death You Remember

    This thread is making me realize just how poor my memory is. Perhaps I just didn't pay any attention to the news as a child. First I can remember, of the top of my head, is Frank Sinatra in 1998, when I was 13. Oddly, I actually do remember a lot of the O.J. trial, which was several years earlier.

    Well, either way, I'm already feeling left behind

    Presumably, he's jumped off to a nice early lead

    The 100 Club

    Was going to include him on a Pittsburgh-area theme team but decided to scrap the whole team at the last minute. Sad day, though, as he was an area institution. One of those guys who you thought would just be around forever. Back when he hosted a PGA Tour event at his resort he always treated everyone, including us volunteers, like kings.

    49. Andy Taylor

    Don't worry, he'll be 63 next year.

    1. Dick Van Dyke

    or, you know, not been included on the list, at all.

    Perhaps they're correcting a mistake. Phelan shouldn't have been accepted.

    I imagine it's probably easier to get uniques by picking random olds, these days

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    2023 Main Team Entry (and some thoughts): The Salmon Mousse Rob Burrow - JOKER - his look reminds me of Marian Cisovsky's right before he went. Rhod Gilbert - basic stage 4 pick Kate Keltie - hate breast cancer picks but her age and the dire reports made her unavoidable Denny Crum - certain to go in 2023, certain to only get me 6 points. Should've changed him out but just couldn't resist the somewhat underground name. Jonnie Irwin Frank McGarvey - already a hit Michael Tilson Thomas - honestly, have major doubts he'll go in 2023 Simon Cowell Steve McMichael Frank Field - this guy bugs me. Surely this is his year, right? Gianluca Vialli Johnny Ruffo - have the same doubts about him as I do about Thomas but I'm also still feeling the sting of dropping Parker last year Jeanette Lee - ESPN's recent 30 for 30 about her solidified this pick Janey Godley - the last person in. Was between her and Kerri Parker but Godley will probably Drop 40. Steve DiMeglio - in the mid-500s with his chemo treatments, thin as a rail, but fighting. Bit of a QO risk but given that he received well-wishes from every top pro when his cancer was announced I feel he'll find one. George Alagiah Ryuichi Sakamoto David J. Linden - a major QO risk but he has been mentioned in The Guardian in the past and last year's ultra-safe lineup ended in disaster James Whale - surely it's his year, right? Shannen Doherty - just seems to be fading out

    Please please please tell me you didn't use him in your DDP lineup

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    Waiting for the final update but I don't believe my two late hits were enough to move ahead of the ultra-imaginative really-really-old-people team in the Theme Team League
