Hartlepool Deadlypool 2021

I compared my two teams. A lot of the names were the same but my real mistake was dropping Shirley from my Hares Team

Interestingly at the moment you might slightly benefit because with that original team Williams's death would net you 7 points so only 3.1 more than the consolation points you got in actuality, but if she was a main team scorer the base potential points of the rest of your aspiring topplers would drop by 5.

 

This of course could change depending on which names die throughout the year.

Ex-veep Walter Mondale is on the fritz. Dying Probably had him as a sub and notches 25 points, which is roughly the amount of votes Mondale himself got in 1984.

Kirk Douglas's widow, Anne Buydens, caps off a lifetime of philanthropy with her generous donation to several HPDP participants. 35 points to Annami and Great Uncle Bulgaria, 25 to markb4, and 25 sub points to Book.

Plot twist of the century, folks. Pink Panther/Bond alum André Maranne was picked by one HPDP participant, and it was... not The Daredevil, but DeathByArsenic, whose tactic of going French-heavy in his teams paid off quite well last year, and now sees him off the mark for this. 40 base points plus 16 extra for uniqueness gains him 56.

Norman Lloyd has died. Assuming that he really has died, and is not just the figment of the imagination of some kid with a snow globe, here are the points for the Hollywood Squares participant.

 

40 + 24 = 64 points for Funeralopolis.

30 + 18 = 48 for Dying Probably, markb4, and the_engineer.

25 sub points for Annami and chilean way.

 

And it is this Lloyd-propelled haul that sees a new leader in our latest scoreboard as Funeralopolis overtakes previous leader Book who had narrowly inched past Perhaps after the death of Anne Buydens. An excitingly close game but plenty of months to go...

Former US Representative Lester L. Wolff now festers. Testament to the dangers of spending all your time tweeting. LizLemon picked Wolff as a sub and howls to the tune of 25 points.

Yoo Sang-chul's football career presented one of the World Cup's great underdog tales, with the South Korean national team making it all the way to the semis in 2002, a feat not achieved by them before or since. Somewhat like how Norfolk & Good nearly won the DDP in 2012. Admittedly South Korea co-hosted the Cup that year, so N&G would've had to have nearly won the Norfolk Dead Pool for the analogy to fully work.

 

Anyway, the_engineer was the only one to pick YSC as a main team pick, and scores 25 base points plus 10 bonus points for 35 total. JoeMoneypenny and theoldlady obtain 25 points from their first sub hit.

German YouTube personality Philipp Mickenbecker a canny pick here by gcreptile, who took note of the HPDP's acceptance of two preeminent German papers. The acknowledgement of his death there provides Reptile with 40 base points and 16 extra bonus unique points, resulting in a 56 point haul overall.
