Phantom of the Midway

Windy City Deadpool 2017-18

Recommended Posts

I have Halliday, Downie, Bracknell, Gilbert, Meads, Loughlin, Cryne, Rae, Campbell, Dean Francis, Nevin, King Michael, Rayya Elias and Violet Brown still alive.

 

I think only three-four will survive. Everyone here is pretty fucked.

Both of them ended up getting obits, and msc soars into a massive lead.

If you ask me, that Telegraph annoucements obit for Singh is pathetic, but it qualifies under the DDP, so it qualifies here.

 

In other news, I'm going back to the US next week. Details to follow in the Holiday thread...

:D

 

Although I wouldn't call it a massive lead with the quality of teams directly below me, right now. Long way to go, yet.

Surprisingly, only four teams had him. Those of us who didn't choose him must have Alzheimer's.

Has the op of this pool Changed their name from Rad or something or am I just confused? 

Yup, I used to be RadGuy.

 

I changed both my username and profile picture on the same day last month. So the confusion is understandable.

Thanks for clarification and stopping me from thinking I was losing my faculties!

I get you confused with Phantom now.

Does "Phantom of the Midway" mean something?  What is the Midway?

Ha, I figured that would be a problem. But similar words like Spectre, Ghost, etc. just didn't seem right.

I guess people ought to call me PotM for short, rather than Phantom.

Well, it's sort of a geographical reference to my hometown, Chicago.

The Chicago Bears, my favorite American football team, are called "the Monsters of the Midway".

The second largest airport in the city is called Midway.

And I guess it could also be interpreted as a synonym for the Midwest.

I might wind up referring to you as "Rad" as a nickname, because I am shit at remembering names.

I still mentally think of RadGuy as RadGuy even though the name change happened like a month ago.

Hell, even I start typing RadG- while logging in most of the time.

Pretty sure this counts for Bryan Murray. Someone had him here...

It was me.  Takes the sting out of the fact that I had Glen Campbell as my second alternate, and I can really use the 120 pts after an endless drought of death.  Moves me up in the standings a little . . .  for now.  I'll take what I can get.
