I see what you are doing there - just casually dropping in the names, in the hope it will spare you the abuse for pointing out the obvious :bombguy:. You are not fooling anyone, you know!

 

Don't worry - the names are sufficiently off-mainstream to escape a rant. Although someone highlighting the passing of Alfred Biolek or Orlando Drummond would have been a bit more useful:angry:

 

Update coming very soon.

Here we go. We are just approaching the interesting time of the year where the points start getting big and so the deaths start to get more interesting.

 

Drol has added a couple of hits to stretch out the lead at the top of the leaderboard. It looks like a decent lead for now, but as we all know, it is still very early in the year for this game. Just behind, En Passant and Wormfarmer have moved into the podium positions, and within striking distance of the lead, with Eesti and Etush also making significant moves in the right direction.

At the other end Ebless has finally racked up a first hit of the year, leaving only Yorkshire Banker yet to trouble the scorers.

And so onto the scoreboard. Lots of people scored a hit with Sarah Harding, and jumped up the scoreboard accordingly. Several other people made minor jumps up the leaderboard with obscure unique hits. Despite avoiding  the big-name celebrities, Drol continues to power on ahead, with a team of lesser-known names. En Passant is still hot on the heels with a team of more recognizable picks. And ZZZ, the team with the most cliched picks of them all, rejoins the top 3.  

Quim continues to rack up the hits to stay in contention, but have they enough picks left to trouble the leaders. Meanwhile Etush lurks ominously outside the top 5, but with only 7 down, there is plenty of scope and time to make a run a the top.

Deadsox is steadily building a nice score, after a disastrous start and cannot be completely ruled out, while Captain Chorizo (:wub::evil:) has lots of picks to go and is not without a chance.

Usual story at the bottom. Yorkshire, no hits, etc.etc.

3 hits to report since the last update. Or to rephrase it, 3 hits that I can see at a glance without googling all the obscure names yet again!.

 

8th September: Amy Winifred Hawkins

17th September: Abdelaziz Bouteflika

19th September: Jimmy Greaves.

 

So why the update after a mere three weeks, and three measly hits? Because we have a new leader, that's why!. En Passant hits with AB to sneak into the lead, with just 5 points separating him/her from Drol in second. Elsewhere Exu and Death Impends both hit the magical 1000 point mark, and jump up the leaderboard into 5th and 8th place respectively, while GUB gets 2 hits out of 3  to add a little respectability to the score.

Usual story at the bottom!

Heh, okay, well, sometimes names are so obscure, I don't even realize their death myself.

Leila Meacham, dead on Sept 26th, a pick for me:

https://www.expressnews.com/news/local/article/San-Antonio-novelist-Leila-Meacham-dies-at-age-83-16479602.php

 

Thanks for the heads-up on that one GCreptile. I'm not sure about your date of death though. The article is dated September 22nd and it says she "died Sunday at the age of 83."

Unless they had a clairvoyant write the article, I am going to assume that she died the previous Sunday, which would be September 19th.

What a difference a few days can make in this game, at this time of the year. Since the last update a mere 4 days ago (take note Deathers!!),we have 2 noteworthy deaths and 1 slightly late notification.

The latest hits are:

Leila Meecham 19th September

Greg Gilbert 30th September

Bernard Tapie 3rd October.

 

So En Passant's position at the top only lasted a couple of weeks, as Drol retakes the lead with a Greg Gilbert hit. Etush storms into second place with a Gilbert/Tapie double, and with only nine down, is in prime position to make a run for the title. CharlesDeGaulle jokered Tapie to race up the leaderboard into sixth, and we now have a dirty dozen topping the 1000 point mark who will still all be fancying their chances at this stage. The 1000 pointers are:

Greg Gilbert 30th September

Bernard Tapie 3rd October.

 

So En Passant's position at the top only lasted a couple of weeks, as Drol retakes the lead with a Greg Gilbert hit. Etush storms into second place with a Gilbert/Tapie double, and with only nine down, is in prime position to make a run for the title. CharlesDeGaulle jokered Tapie to race up the leaderboard into sixth, and we now have a dirty dozen topping the 1000 point mark who will still all be fancying their chances at this stage. The 1000 pointers are:

 

Drol (1802 points) 12 hits

[Dilip Kumar*, Dovid Soloveitchic, Emmanuel Evans-Anfom, Ernie Moss, Frank Worthington, Gerd Muller, Greg Gilbert, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Mikis Theodorakis, Norman Lloyd, Toko Shinodam, Vittore Bochetta ]

Ruthie Tompson is a hit.

Yes, indeed she is, giving a hit to 5 players. Markb4 and Torvamessor climb into a more respectable mid-table spot. Death Impends and Wormfarmer climb up into the top 6. That should have meant that they were back in contention, except that the leader Drol also scored big with Ruthie, becoming the first player to hit 2000 points, and extending the lead to over 50 points. It seems like a big lead now, but its only 2 hits at this stage of the game, so still all to play for. 

Here is the new top 6 - everyone else can figure out their own positions for now!

 

Drol (2084 points) 13 hits
