    Also user Bert Trautmann joined less than three years before Bert Trautmann's death and was probably the only time a forum user broke the news of their namesake's death.

    Cue for someone to create a "Henry Kissinger" alt?

    Badly timed deaths

    Ah yes, the namesake event of some deadpool team, I think it's called John Adams Dies...

    Tom O'Connor is a goner and brings points to Willz. Base 15 points plus the bonus points for uniqueness, panto, and Squares pulls the total O'Connor score up to 51, roughly doubling Willz's total score!

    Biz Markie is a unique hit here for GuyFromFuture. Interestingly there exists a hip-hop themed spinoff of Hollywood Squares, Hip-Hop Squares, in which Markie appeared in 17 episodes of. As the show is under the Hollywood Squares franchise umbrella I am considering his appearances valid for the Squares bonus points. 40 base points coupled with an extra 48 bonus points marks a hefty 88-point hit for GuyFromFuture. The rapid string of hits in recent hits leads to a new scoreboard, with Edwin Edwards's death proving the most crucial of the recent deaths as his sub points for Perhaps sneak him into the lead: 1.

    Just walk away Renée, you won't see me follow you back home... Indeed, we bid adieu to the 109-year-old doyenne of French cinema, Renée Simonot, known for dubbing Olivia de Havilland among others in the 1930s and being the mum of Catherine Deneuve. Three teams take a bow - Annami and markb4 for 30 points, and BabyBlue off the mark with 10.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2021

    The hosting is for 2022 onwards, yes. If you have a good handle on spreadsheets it's pretty straightforward. My Excel file has a few different pages for each year, of the picks, the teams, the scoreboard, and the popularity statistics. After the entry period closes, an update typically takes me 10 minutes, with about 8 of them spent thinking of shite puns regarding the dearly departed celeb.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2021

    I like your style. All yours if you want it. Let me know if you need any tips as to how it is run - if not that is fine as well, given the pool is a fairly simple structure.

    Two hits today. First off, Chesterfield footballing icon Ernie Moss now gathers... well... and is a unique hit for Exu. 25 base points plus 10 extra scores him 35 total. Secondly, vibrant personality of Louisiana politics Edwin Edwards has died, who was as corrupt as most other politicians but wore his corruption as a badge of honor in a strangely endearing manner. He won a fourth term as governor purely off facing David Duke (something of an earlier version of Chirac vs Le Pen), went on to serve prison time, starred in a reality show after getting released, and had a child in his eighties. They just don't make crooks like they used to... Sean had Edwards on his main team and now gets swamped by 45 base points coupled with 18 bonus points for 63 points in total. Perhaps had him as a sub and nets 25. And so we're clear - I still will be hosting the HPDP for 2022 onwards. The DDP front page should be fairly easy to balance with running the HPDP - I may make HPDP updates a little more infrequent starting 2022, but it shall be updated nevertheless.

    OK now that it's been made public that I'll be co-hosting the DDP starting next year, I've decided to retire from hosting the Inverse. Even if the front page role of DDP hosting is admittedly the most low maintenance part, I think it's wisest to self-impose a two-pool hosting limit (and there aren't enough people who understand the HPDP so I am obliged to stick with that one ) If anyone is interested in taking over hosting duties let me know.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Quite the eventful day for deadpooling, with the deaths of demented footballers, pioneering wrestlers, and flamboyantly corrupt Louisiana guvnas still able to win election by running against Klansmen. The task of chronicling these fascinating lives (well, those picked on the DDP anyway) falls upon msc, but he had made clear he would pass the baton next year. I can now publicly announce that I shall be taking over his front page duty segment of the DDP committee for 2022. I admit it was in the works for some time, which was partially why I picked Art Rupe and Shintaro Tsuji this year, to start adapting to playing a somewhat more "host-ly" team. I am mindful that the front page duties are typically a Briton's job, but the committee has full faith in me. It's possible I'll have guest obits for the really institutional UK figures who are unknown in the US - say, Murray Walker or Denis Norden for past examples - but the vast vast majority of obits shall be my doing. Otherwise, the time-honed tradition of the DDP host using old pop lyrics as obit headlines and pretending they know everything about whoever won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 25 years ago shall remain exactly the same! Still plenty of details to work out over the coming months as I figure out how I want to handle the front page. When I first discovered the DDP in the mid-aughts as a tween, I never would have thought I'd eventually co-host. Or, tbh, if I had known what the Internet would be like in general by now, that the DDP or DL would still be going on at all. Bit of a surreal feeling!

    Just did a check and some posts here say that Joe Vento died in October 2020 with little fanfare: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Joe-Vento-Music-1636830693210881/community/?ref=page_internal
