Derby Dead Pool 2020

Recommended Posts

I picked Banali with trepidation.  No reason to think a ‘young’ man can’t survive 18 months with Stg 4 panc C.  Hell, 80 year olds do it constantly (another reason to poo poo Alcee Hastings, who JUST discovered it....not that he would ever QO).  Banali most likely to survive frankly.  I put him on my Hares team precisely cuz he a late year death if at all.

David Quantick's Showbiz Pals have now been filed for the first time in two years. Spent the past 48 hours with food poisoning and no sleep so if I fuck it up completely this year, that's my excuse.

If you picked Maude Apatow as your joker, that would be very bad food poisoning.

So usually I show theme teams here, but because I am co-hosting I sort of split the usual "interesting folk" theme team and a normal Pan Breed side into 3 different teams to deal with the host winning scenario. (Hahahah it's still me, you lot, not a Spade or DI!)

 

So here's the B team

 

Here’s Who you could have won (B-team you can spot a good 4-5 picks that would have made the main team in a normal year)

2.      John Nord

3.      Vasily Kulkov

4.      Michael Robinson

5.      Michael McKevitt

6.      Frank Bowling

8.      Rob Rensenbrink

9.      TJ Ducklo

10.   Mikis Theodorakis

11.   Pat Arrowsmith

12.   Brian Glanville

13.   Nobuhiko Obayashi

14.   Bob Dole

15.   David Hagen

16.   Qaboos bin Said

17.   Pat Smullen

18.   Samuel Brittan

19.   Jimmy Carter

20.   Ophelie Winter

And yes, with regret:

 

 

 

So It’s Come to This: A Pan Breed C-team

(Half the theme team plus bits and bobs)

 

  1. David Crosby

  2. David berglas

  3. Doug Supernaw

  4. Jacci Woodcock

  12. Diane Hoh,

  13. Henry gray

  14. Ion Iliescu

  15. Denis Goldberg

  16. Ed Genson

  17. Natasha England

  18. Susan Bayh

  19. Kerri Parker

  20. Deborah James

Subs

A direct copy of my email - a team initially intended as a theme team (people with terminall illness - When Will I-FFBI Be Famous becomes Kervorkian Clinic due to a inability to let Shot in the Dark go and the Corrie team being a stalwart at this point.) Msc has already politely wondered me that should any of these actually obit the team will be open to sustained ridicule..... fair enough I suppose. 
 
Deathray's Kervorkian Clinic
 
- these people have all had news reports in press which seems to be pitifully low standard for the DDP. Yes, this team is partly an attempt to make a point and partly because i'm pushed for time and googling terminally ill was a quick research method - submitting this in the hope none of them die any who do don't obit.....
  1. Lisa Griffits (vowed to beat cancer - Daily Mail favourite)
  2. James Church (Charlotte Church's step dad)
  3. Garry Holmes (sun favourite  with runny nose that turned out to be cancer)
  4. Rob Burrow (motor neurone disease, Leeds Rhino)
  5. Sheila Yeo (former primary school teacher who contracted cancer and is trying to blame it on the school)
  6. Tracey Hill (terminally ill woman who's co-workers and friends made a naked calendar for in the welsh valleys)
  7. Bruce Evans (terminally ill Great North Air Ambulance volunteer who's vowed not to give up the fight)
  8. Doug Allen (terminally ill but won't kill himself due to wife facing clink for helping - daily mail coverage)
  9. Edwin Smith (terminally ill man living in Thailand who had a gofundme started to bring him home to Ireland)
  10. Haley Casey (cancer mum)
  11. Simona Birdsell (cancer mum)
  12. James Matthews (father of a girl who somehow made the news for caring for them and a free laptop)
  13. Roberta Burton (another cancer mum)
  14. Lisa Fry (another cancer mum)
  15. Bethan Close (another cancer mum)
  16. Andrea Swift (cancer mum _ Taylor Swifts to be precise)
  17. Debbie Winn (cancer mum)
  18. Ron Hogg (terminally ill Police Commissioner and right to life campaigner)
  19. Peter McLeave (terminally ill former ironman competitor)
  20. Ria Collins (cancer mum)
  21. Dr Peter B Scott Morgan (worlds first 'full cyborg)
  22. The Amazing Johnathan (magician - stand up comedian)
  23. Charlie Bishop (cancer dad)
 
The Cobbles to a Coffin

(theme team - Corrie actors, put which character they are in brackets to save a google)
  1. William Roache (Ken Barlow)
  2. Thelma Barlow (Mavis Wilton)
  3. Kenneth Cope (Jed Stone)
  4. Anne Reid (Valerie Barlow)
  5. Malcolm Hebden (Norris Cole)

  10. Ernst Walder (Ivan Cheveski) (the internet thinks he's still alive? fuck knows)
  11. Patricia Shakesby (Susan Cunningham)
  12. Timothy West (Eric Babbage)
  13. June Brown (Mrs Parsons) (yes, she was in Corrie as well, there's your pub quiz question.
  14. Bernard Cribbins (Wall Bannister)
  15. Julie Goodyear (Bet Lynch)
  16. Gareth Berliner (Macca)
  17. Maureen Lipman (Evelyn Plummer)
  18. Eileen Derbyshire (Emily Bishop)
  19. Brian Capron (Richard Hillman)
  20. Mark Eden (Alan Bradley)
  21. Madge Hindle (Renee Bradshaw)
  22. Johnny Briggs (Mike Baldwin)
  23. Lisa George (Beth Tinker) [I'm struggling and the daily express is playing up her 'chronic health battle' with fucking diabetes for pete's sake)
  24. David Neilson (Roy Cropper)
  25. Sue Nicholls (Audrey Roberts)
 
Shot in the Dark.
(sort of not really a theme team - the first 25 names I thought of, no filtering whatsoever (except for removing the dead) )
  1. Arthur Scargill (trade unionist) (Joker)
  2. Michael Gorbachev (soviet leader)
  3. Albert Luque (footballer)

  25. Liam Gallagher (professional wanker)
