Ratzinger already a substitution hit. Obviously, if you still pick your replacements today, those already dead today can't be picked.

 

So does he count if we got our team subs in yesterday?g

The use of the replacement period was surprisingly rare.

Anyway, the masterlist on the first page is updated.

 

Georg Ratzinger has already become a hit since then. And there was Carl Reiner.

Bernardino Pinera is probably a lost cause for an obit.

Ennio Morricone has passed away 6. July 2020. R.I.P. My 12th hit this year in this pool.

Update time:

New hits: Replacement Nick Cordero, part-replacement, part-already picked Jack Charlton (Great Uncle Bulgaria subbed him in, well done), Everton Weekes a unique hit for Torva, and Ennio Morricone.

Mark Naley seems more likely to be a non-obit than not as of now.

 

And as I begin my usual descent down the scoreboard post-replacement period (even Zanardi and Draper won't help, because as predicted, everyone else subbed them in, too), look who is suddenly there at no. 2:

Comfortably the highest point of my deadpooling career, especially as I had no idea he was ill.

But, couple of weeks ago, I had a dream.

Just waiting for the following night's dream involving Madame Cholet and a large vat of apricot yoghurt to materialise now....

Indeed, we have a batch of new hits, all of whom have been picked quite a few times: Judy Dyble, John Lewis, and Ruth Morrissey.

Kieran O'Connor was actually subbed out, but Death Impends still continues his lead with a healthy distance.

JoeyRuss however has the trifecta of these three hits and advances to nr 2.

Fi Munro seems, somewhat surprisingly, to become a non-obit. I think she would more likely have obited one or two years ago.

 

Both Morrissey and Munro were, in my opinion, more than just "cancer mums" - one was a legal case with influence on a whole country, one was an author/fundraiser/activist for years.

But here we now see, these cases can still be risky.

John Hume is a hit for me here. :rip: 14/50, (including my joker.)

 

(Also Olivia de Havelland was my 13th hit. :rip:)

Alright a quick update now on a new computer, and a new version of Excel...

 

As far as I can tell right now, new hits are John Hume, Olivia De Havilland and David Hagen. Oh, and the substitution pick Stuart Wheeler who extends Death Impends' lead for now.

Alright, no update in almost a month.... and between work and holiday I lost track of who's new, and what's the narrative.

So a sober update - if I missed something, let me know.

 

New Hits: Frankie Banali, Sumner Redstone, Bullet Bob Armstrong, Christopher Guy Harrison, Dale Hawerchuk (Jiroemon Kimura with the latter two!), Kamala the wrestler and frequent pick John Hume.

 

It gives us the following new scoreboard:

The death of former  Prime Minister of Canada  John Turner  gives me a 'hit' in this pool when a qualifying obituary transpires which I'm sure it will.

Edit  Now a qualifying obituary  from UK Reuters.
