Results for the 2010 Pa Rock's Dead Pool

by Pa Rock

2010 has come and gone - and I am more than a few days late and more than a few dollars short in determining and posting the results of the most recent Pa Rock's Dead Pool.   Like last year, there were several ties.

3rd Place went to Ron for correctly predicting that former Yankee's owner, George Steinbrenner, would bite the big one in 2010.   George died at the ripe old age of 80, leaving Ron with 20 points.

2nd Place was captured by Camille and Brenda who each correctly foresaw the demise of Elizabeth Edwards.  The classy political wife died just before the end of the year at the age of 61, earning 39 points each for Camille and Brenda.

1st Place was a three-way tie between Judy, Darby, and Nick who all zeroed in on the permanent exit (stage left) of former child star, Gary Coleman.  He died earlier in the year at the young age of 42, leaving the three winners with 58 points each.

I need addresses on all winners except Ron and Nick - and then the prize money will be in the mail.  Please email me your snail mail information Camille, Brenda, Judy, and Darby.

2010 was the third annual dead pool, and participation was less than stellar.  Who would be interested in trying this a fourth time, and would you be willing to aggressively spread the word to get more participants?

Let me hear from you.

Congratulations to the current crop of winners!

Just donate any proceeds to the Sudan, care of George Clooney.

Or, if that is too hard, give it to a charity of your choice. I trust your judgment.
