ABC Deadpool III

Recommended Posts

Updating: Holly Clegg designated 'No Obit' officially for now.

It's been very quiet around these parts, but that is cuz we have had only a couple hits, and solo they are! 
Philip lands 5 points with his B hit of one of Ireland's finest, Gay Byrne.
JiroemonKimura took a chance with the reports of illness for football owner Jorge Vergara, even when it was believed he was recovered.  That has paid off with a V hit, good for 7 points, making him the new leader in the clubhouse as we enter mid-November!

Seems appropriate that waiting a long time for our next hit finally took place by a person we were waiting a LONG time to become one.
I refer to Mr. Clive James of course.  A letter C hit for a couple folks (3 points).  A surname J hit for a few others (4 points).  Squeaking in with that 1939 2-point bonus!

Seems like many are missing points for Juliette Kaplan.

The death of Yasuhiro Nakasone gave four teams a 2-point Y (bonus point) hit, while theoldlady would also get 2 points for using his N surname.
Banana climbs back on top of our leader board in a deadpool where the excitement never ends!

EDIT: So as noted above, Juliette Kaplan left the game and we didn't honour her points.   So let's do!
Sean and Toast get 3 points for a J hit (plus barely grabbing the 1939 bonus!); Clorox and CptChorizo 4 points for her K surname.

As much as I’d love the extra points, I have Nakamatsu and not Nakasone.

@Sir Creep two people have Paul Volcker on their lists. Well done!

Paul Volcker was a rare member of both a Democratic (Carter) and Republican (Reagan) Administration.  Actually so would be his successor Alan Greenspan (Clinton/GBush42).  In any case, a HIT for his surname V for Death Impends and gcreptile, and a Duo bonus for 3 total.

Your honesty gains 2 points. :) Well if it was up to me.  Unfortunately others get all upset so I'll deduct the points. (it's been done on scoreboard above, you've 32 now)

It’s not a precedent there are a list of QOs.  I’m happy to extract points lol.  Etchegaray has no points.

Creepy I think you are being very hard on yourself I did not realise that this was going to be quite so serious.  We could always take ourselves off on a little holiday to Rome and obtain a copy of the death certificate, visit the grave and pay our last respects, would that count as proof?

Shiela Mercier did indeed die, at the perfectly exact age of 100.   And finally...FINALLY.... Yvonne gets off the mark.  And in a big way, as she scores a SOLO hit in the process!  Well done.  In fact we have a whole new scoreboard dedicated to you.

Thanks to @Toast for the info -- on poor Mr. Martin Peters, who peters out at 76 years old.  A letter M hit for Sean, and P for Toast, who along with the Duo and 1939 bonuses score 4 and 5 respectively.

@Sir Creep On the front page it still says I have 25 points instead of 27.:) I need all the points I can get. (At least I am doing better than last year where I ended up in last place with 2 hits for only 3 points! :unsure:)

Tom Long was not Long for the second decade of the 21st Century.  But he squeezed out an extra day (4 January) by living in Australia a bit east of the international timeline.  His headstone would say 3 January most places.  Maybe a good reason we should all move to Australia, if living as long as possible is important.  Hard to argue the logic :blink: :lol:

Funny what a difference a few months makes.  An absolute pile of people scored, some using his L surname (4 points) and a few with his T first name (3 points), along with the post-1939 bonus.  Long probably had more hits here than in the 2020 DDP with 600 teams, what with most recent reports he was 'better'.  
Only notable change on our scoreboard is JiroemonKimura opening up a slightly larger lead of 4 points.  Plenty of time for the pelleton to catch up.

Skinny kiltrunner climbed aboard the runaway train that was (Sultan) Qaboos bin Said... nailing down a letter Q hit AND a solo AND a 1939 bonus, good for 9 points, and most certainly the single highest scoring hit we will have this year!  O-man you are good. 
Skinny-k climbs 8 positions with 20 overall points.

Kinda what I said when I saw it was a solo hit.  Also,  you apparently had 11 points not 10 as shown two posts above, so you really jumped 10 points, doubling your score.  :)

I jumped on the Qaboos early, so I had him here, but then I lost my focus and left him off a number of later teams.
