Not sure why this FB link isn't linking.   Anyway, post from the person eulogizing Mr. Sutherland.  He died on March 27th accordingly.  Obit posted in New Zealand Herald on March 30.  Alls I know.

Unfortunately I can’t count social media posts, as they can literally be written by anybody. You still got four hours to find a suitable obit, but the clock is certainly ticking...

no of course not re: FB

The previous is direct from the NZ Herald.  That is another story.

Despite the death of Larry Eckhardt making things a little less lopsided, the point difference is sufficient for me to concede. I don't foresee a massive last-minute comeback.

Crikey, even Biblio hasn't conceded, c'mon!

I too submitted a team, even though my prediction my opponent would get a hit happened (even if it hasn't yet an obit).

Maybe a third of my April team will be subject to the Rackture. One can hope!

Well, if he doesn’t submit you’ll be up against Spade. Sorry to dampen your hopes of a bye

Oh arse.

 

I mean, good luck! I'd say "may the best team win" but screw that, I want to win instead.

Sorry for the last minute theatrics. Half the people at work are off sick with tickly coughs, self isolating for 2 weeks as they pretend to be worried about Corona. Working day and night to keep the business going, so had to chuck the team together at the minute.

Furlough your staff and shut down like everyone else?

 

They're not pretending to be worried - you thick cunt, it's a deadly disease; they're trying not to kill you.

Phew, it's all terribly nerve wracking.

 

I'm not even sure at this stage whether I'm through.

With every of the expected competitors in, we unfortunately have to say goodbye to Spade Cooley. An impressive run last year, and certainly gave an impressive run this time, but unfortunately it seems like there’s a curse for those who went in the top two the previous year (Deadsox being an outlier from 2017)...
