You may choose a joker that gives you double points.

Time's up for mr. whit. The joker will be the first name on the list, Adam Ant.

Michael McKevitt a hit for me here.  First hit of my forum career.

The death of Michael McKevitt puts Gcreptile, msc, DDT, Banana, An Fear Beag, theoldlady, and Salmon Mousse in a joint lead with 47 points. 

 

Everyone else is at zero.

I will give a first update after I close the 2020 competition. So in a couple of days, I hope you can wait.

At this rate this years DbN will be, to quote DDT once, "positively dripping in blood"!

I mistakenly thought that McKevitt had carked last year. 

 

If we had real justice, the murdering bar steward would have been hanged years ago.

My first sub Alexi Laiho, a vocalist of Finnish metal band Children of Bodom, has died. No points for me though since he's only one of my subs and I'm not sure if he even gets QO (I didn't find anything about this in English yet, but it's all over the Finnish newspapers).

Alright, get ready for a first scoreboard...

Now, all the names are not yet in my long-term memory, so I hope not to miss anyone.

 

But it seems to me that so far, we've had "The DDP triple", i.e. Floyd Little, Michael McKevitt, Paul Westphal.

Plus, we've had two unique hits: that cleric picked by DDT, Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, plus Gerry Marsden, a unique hit for Bibliogryphon.

 

However, only one person scores joker points, and that is An Fear Beag for Floyd Little, so he's the first leader of the scoreboard:

 

Rank Team Score
1 An Fear Beag 183
2 gcreptile 141
2 Salmon Mousse 141
2 msc 141
2 Banana 141
6 DevonDeathTrip 126

18 The Daredevil 0
18 Annami 0
18 Baby Blue 0

If I forgot anything, tell me. The committee is busy with setting up the DDP, but I can always add scores here.

11 days in, and I am up to 7 hits, but only 3 with QOs so far. Nawi, Shaidle, Strain and Hitchon all awaiting obits. I suspect that I will set a blistering pace, then run out of gas by the midpoint and watch multiple teams overtake me,

Second update:

We have Julie Strain, Stacy Title, Tommy Lasorda and Sylvain Sylvain.

Ezra Nawi is looking for an obit. Will the broadsheets save him (or actually, those who picked him?)?

And Kathy Shaidle didn't even get a "real" article anywhere. Most likely a miss - but we have to whole year to look.

 

Anyway, the result is a scoreboard that has Cpt. Chorizo leading. After I had looked at all the teams, I actually thought, that's the most solid one.

1 Cpt. Chorizo 302
2 An Fear Beag 245

Larry King is a hit  for me here. :rip:

3rd update...

Mr. Whit scores the unique Cloris Leachman/Cicely Tyson double, as the latter is a unique hit for him. Plus, there are the already mentioned Larry King, and Phil Spector - bringing us the four hits I usually look for in an update. Ezra Nawi...well either tomorrow or never...

Curiously, Larry King was a widely predicted death this year, and frequently picked in the DDP, but not so much here, the scoreboard remains more unchanged than one might have thought:

 

Rank Team Score
1 Cpt. Chorizo 302
2 An Fear Beag 245
3 Salmon Mousse 236
4 JoeyRuss 213
5 Wormfarmer 203
6 gcreptile 201
7 Banana 168
8 Death Impends 162
9 Book 161
10 drol 154
11 msc 141

13 Annami 123
14 Lynchian 92
