Sorry Windsor but number 20 Roberto Suazo Cordova has already died.

 

Ah flip. In which case Leslie Philips, Nobby Stiles and Sean Connery all move up a space and James Martin of Still Game fame takes number 23rd space.

  2. Herman Wouk
  3. Olivia de Havilland
  4. Bob Dole
  5. Katherine Johnson
  6. Prince Philip
  7. Sumner Redstone
  8. Tim Conway
  9. Leah Bracknell
  10. Ruthie Tompson
  11. Vera Lynn
  12. I. M. Pei
  13. Harry Reid
  14. David Koch
  15. Francoise Gilot
  16. Bob Barker
  17. Mikhail Gorbachev
  18. Gershon Kingsley
  19. Jean-Louis Trintignant
  20. Henry Kissinger
  21. Pope Benedict XVI
  22. Lee Kerslake
  23. Kathleen Blanco
  24. Joanne Woodward
  25. Robert Mugabe
  26. Sidney Poitier
  27. Carol Channing
  28. Dilip Kumar
  29. Jimmy Carter
  30. Terry Jones
  31. Clive James
  32. Jean Grand Duke of Luxembourg
  33. Jim Leavelle
  34. Jim Lovell
  35. James McCord
  36. Gaston Glock
  37. Bart Starr
  38. John Paul Stevens
  39. Glynis Johns
  40. Larry Storch
  41. Dean Stockwell
  42. Doris Day

  45. Bob Hawke
  46. F. W. de Klerk
  47. Nehemiah Persoff
  48. Dave Bartholomew
  49. Jacques Chirac
  50. Wilford Brimley

 

ETA with the revelation on Jan 30 that Morton Sobell died late December, I threw Kissinger (one of the names I had last year, but dropped) on the list. If this list were part of an actual deadpool I'd take the L and deal with a non-starter among the 50, but feel it doesn't really violate deadpool ethics to replace someone dead for a month on a list that isn't actually part of any competition.

 

ETA James McCord died in 2017. Now that it's April I'm just going to have to deal with a squad of 49.

First hit of the year. DL 0-1 Quim. Kind of goes against my normal picks in terms of how widely known they are, but he's a DL forum icon so I couldn't resist.

 

Sadly, the Seer was going to be my joker in the DL Cup, so that's pissed me off.

Well, it has been really slow in terms of shadow list worthy names in general (I’m also still at 0 and I’m sure there’s others at 0 too). I think only a couple names that could be considered shadow list worthy have even died. Now, it’s likely that it’ll pick up the pace by the end of the year, so I wouldn’t worry about that yet...

I forgot to make a shadow list this year. My crowdsourced list submission has at least 2 though, Diana Athill and Lyndon LaRouche.

I am now at 4 hits after The Grand Duke. Not a great score almost a third of the way through the year but it is better than 1.

I didn't count my hits for some months now, but in the last days I got two hits with Le Duc Anh (who was for the first time on my Shadowlist) and Jean from Luxemburg (he was for the second time on my Shadowlist). May both Rest In Peace.

I counted it and I have 8 hits until now, most of them aren't really famous.

Their names (in list order): Andrew McGahan, Le Duc Anh, George Fernandes, Li Rui, Diana Athill, Jean from Luxembourg, Shivakumara Swami and Bishop Francis Quinn

Le Duc Anh also puts me at 4. The Duke is a big miss though.

Before I started deadpooling I had never heard of him. Whilst Royalty is a legitimate pick there was always someone more famous.
