Sorry, cross wires given Sir Creep was talking about needing a QO!

Hello.

 

Shouldn't teams with a unique hit really get a namecheck in the round-ups? Rather than "...one team..."?

 

My uniques are still very much alive, btw.

 

Cheers.

Round Up #3 (Musk Falcon Takes To The Skies- So What? Special)

 

Pete Stokes: Awaiting Obit.

 

Fedora Aleman: Awaiting Obit.

 

John Anthony West: Awaiting Obit.

We're really talking about the Big Ones here ;).

 

But seriously, the past two weeks have been abnormally quiet...

Yeah, we've now gone a full week without a scoring hit.

 

This wouldn't be surprising during one of the quiet months, but February certainly isn't one of those.

Yeah, it kind of has the feel of a calm before the storm. I expect another big wave of deaths to come soon tbh (though it hasn’t been completely quiet, as the former lead singer of the temptations and John Mahoney went during the last week)...

It's weird, I don't have records to hand but we have an inordinate number of non-QOs lying around at the moment, admittedly for some (Salvador Borrego) who were never going to qualify, but Barys Kit, Ann Gillis, WPC Davies and the Aston Villa duo you'd have thought were guaranteed scorers.

Kudos msc for the gamble. I was too unsure of an obit for him to punt on my team, so congrats on the gamble...

Bloody hell, who knew I could actually call them right for once!

 

So, the guy I thought was a gamble because he was well known in his field but not in the UK... winds up getting a QO because he does the marriage on death bed thing (which I had no foreknowledge of back in December). It's a crazy world at times.

 

Now, RIP to him (no age at all, really) and damn that Here's Who You Could Have Won team for taking my unique, whoever they are. :P

So msc picked an Australian who got married on her deathbed, she dies off the radar and is discovered to be a 2017 fatality, which bumps up another Aussie pick onto his main, who dies and then obits thanks in part to marrying on his deathbed! Well done on the gamble!

I'm a bit of a luddite, often all fingers and thumbs with technology but nevertheless is there a way of me helping get some photographs on some of the listed deadpool names.  Or  does it have to be the gamerunner who does this? 

I'd like to help if I can and to take some of the drudgery away from Spade?

Hope so !!

 

Davies is my 3rd unique ever in 10 years I think (after Vaclav Havel and Arthur Bliss'  wife). I am quite literally over the moon.

The lead is back, I think. :P

67 points from only 5 hits is a remarkable feat by Drol so far. Def one of the big teams to beat this year.

List of the Lost finally up, plus 100 new bios.

 

Edit: and the List of the Missed! And some pictures as well! Someone's trying to put off their spring cleaning here...

Some other List of the Missed-ers are Dan Gurney (2015) and Olive Nicol (2017).

 

Also technically cancer mum Laura Saull (2017) but I don't think obscure cancer mums were ever really kept track of for the LoM.

Noticed that I’m in the top 10 for the first time this year without a bunch of people sharing that spot. I think it’s becoming more likely of me getting a top ten spot in the end, though I certainly don’t think I’m going to win yet...

No one happens to have seen a QO for Bill Crider anywhere, I assume?

Shalom Ouanounou - Huge gamble, his story was reported by the BBC though. There'll be a legal decision next month whether this brain-dead body continues to be externally stimulated. The decision will definitely be reported. His death as well? By the way, I thought it was too shameless to also pick the body of Taquisha McKitty - a similar case.

Judge to decide on decision soon. No UK coverage yet though...
