Pa Rock's Dead Pool

Announcing Pa Rock’s 1st Annual DEAD POOL!

That’s right, all of you prescient prognosticators! I’m organizing a Dead Pool for the year 2008!

The Rules:

1. Make a list of 10 notable people whom you think will die in 2008. (The names should be readily recognizable to most people – politicians, royalty, celebrities, sports figures, etc)
2. Submit your list to pa.rock.macy@gmail.com or directly to Pa Rock’s Ramble.
3. Entry deadline is 15 January 2008 at midnight.
4. Sit back and check those obituaries.
5. The Dead Pool will end on 31 December 2008 at midnight.

What could be easier?

You will be awarded points whenever anyone on your list bites the dust. The number of points will be determined by subtracting the dearly departed’s age from one hundred. The younger the deceased, the more points you will receive. If an old coot on your list dies, the points will be much less.

There will be no entry fees and prizes will consist only of really classy certificates for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers.

Here is my list. You may borrow freely.

1. Prince Philip of Great Britain
2. Woody Harrelson
3. Betty Ford
4. Rudy Giuliani
5. Jack Lelane
6. Eartha Kitt
7. Angela Lansbury
8. Britney Spears
9. Bob Dylan
10. Phyllis Diller

Britney Spears, good one! By the way, I just googled "Pa Rocks Blog" and it came up! I will be making a list for your deadpool soon. Between drugs and old age I can think of at least a couple people that may kick the bucket this year.
