Deathrace Form Guide #7

Dick Cheney 

 

There's an argument raging elsewhere on this site about the wisdom of picking the man for the 2020 Deathlist. Deathracers next year face the nail-biting randomness of a seeming survivor who is five heart attacks into his history of survival and - as of the start of Deathracing -  less than a month from his 80th birthday. One of those who could go anytime. Deft selection of such types has contributed greatly to victories in those dead pools that don't value the long game.

Peter Tobin

 

Infamous murderer with a handful of convictions and a veritable raft of suspected victims. He's survived a stroke and - earlier this year - appears to have seen off an immediate cancer scare, but he's 74, generally in poor health and a nailed on obit as and when he finally carks. 74 years old.

How the fuck this hard-livin' headcase made it to 82 is anyone's guess. The portrait in his attic doubtless smells as bad as it looks - all those who don't dive into every scurrilous book about bad ass musicians need to know is that this man continues to reside in the UK and he'd make local headlines even if there were 20 mile queues at the channel ports and the Covid death toll hit 1000 when he went (so Deathrace points, then). As recently as last year the man's capacity for self-sabotage was writ large when he sidestepped a question about the age of his girlfriends back in the day by saying their youth wasn't a problem because he married them (granted one was 16, another 17...) C'mon, c'mon...etc That comment led to the cancellation of a farewell tour. He can't cancel his own farewell forever.

Maybe a really longshot candidate,but the 27 club is always looking for new members and KPop Idols meeting a young demise seems to happen at a rate only trailing American rappers.

I feel a philosophical debate coming on here - to my pragmatic Spade-is-a-fookin'-spade understanding of life I think you just said, you'll be "in" sometime next week. I'll try and stay alive until then.

Deathrace Form Guide # 12

Alex Gavan 

 

Put it this way, there's some tea steaming away near my computer and a couple of cookies lovingly baked  by a neighbour and dropped as she toured a few houses to share some Christmas cheer. Meanwhile, the Romanian thrill-seeker pictured above is taking his first steps up K2 around this time. The mountain is a merciless killer in May - when it's deemed safe. If his bravery bites him in the ass eight days from now, he's worth 364 points to anyone picking him. You could - of course - go balls to the proverbial wall and include his companion...

The pair on the wrong end of an avalanche, on New Year's Day, throw in a joker and you're touching 1100 points. 

 

We wish them well and salute their bravery and determination, obviously

Michael McKevitt 

 

Selected by some already - see above - hard-line republican whose history this century includes losing battles with courts he can't bring himself to respect and the occasional loss (like one kidney), in an ongoing cancer battle. 71 and free having served his sentence which means there are a few loyalists, equally unrepentant, who might be tempted to turn up and remonstrate with him regarding the Omagh bombing. Obits a certainty as and when.
