2011 Dead Pool

First off, let us recap the GOM submissions for 2010:

Brad's 2010 Dead Pool

  • Gloria Steinem

  • Lauren Bacall

  • Robert Byrd

  • Kirk Douglas

  • Eli Wallach

  • K-Rod's 2010 Dead Pool

  • Dolores (Mrs. Bob) Hope

  • Art Linkletter

  • John Wooden

  • Jake Lamotta

  • Ariel Sharon

  • Of the 10 overall submissions, we got three hits. That's pretty good if you're playing baseball but somewhat below average in predicting imminent death for those who are ancient or gravely ill.

    With that, here are my 2011 picks:

    Brad's 2011 Dead Pool

  • Aretha Franklin

  • Harmon Killebrew

  • Arlen Specter

  • Michael Douglas

  • Mischa Barton

  • If any other GOM members choose to participate, feel free to leave you selections in this post.


    1. I'll play:

      Murray Warmath
      June Foray
      Yogi Berra
      Ernest Borgnine
      Doris Day

      Also noticed how you switched from Kirk to Michael Douglas. Probably a shrewd move.

    2. and nobody has chosen Christopher Hitchens?

    3. I try to not pick low hanging fruit, Gino. Not nearly as challenging.
