Bring Out Your Dead (Pool) - 2012 Kickoff! (UPDATE: Brad adds his list)

It’s time to pick your Dead Pool for 2012!

Fortune favors the bold, and the guy who goes first, so I’m going to grab some low-hanging fruit with mine. My picks for 2012 are:

Hugo Chavez
Jerry Sandusky
Jon Corzine
Sid Caesar
Ndamukong Suh

To review this year’s results, Brad and I tied. I had one — Murray Warmath. I missed on the following:

Yogi Berra
Ernest Borgnine
June Foray
Doris Day

Brad was right with Harmon Killebrew and missed with:

Aretha Franklin
Michael Douglas
Mischa Barton
Arlen Specter

If you’d like to reuse my 2011 list for your 2012 entrants, feel free — they let me down, the weasels. I’ll let Brad tell you if he retains ownership of any of his 2011 choices.

And if you’re looking for low-hanging fruit, be sure to pick Etta James. If you want to play, add a comment or post your own.

Brad's picks
Seth Binzer
Sid Hartman
Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
Orlando Thomas
Jean-Claude Van Damme

K-Rod's Picks
Jack Klugman
Nancy Reagan
Jerry Lewis
Penny Marshall
Zsa Zsa Gabor
