2012 Pa Rock's Dead Pool

by Pa Rock
Dead Pool Manager

It's true!  Pa Rock's Dead Pool is back for yet another year - our fifth!  The rules are simple.  All you have to do is select ten names of people whom you think might die in the year 2012 - from the world's nearly endless supply of celebrities - and email those names to me at  That's all there is to it.  Submit those names and then kick back and wait on the Grim Reaper to do his thing.

Points are awarded for each death that you are able to accurately predict.  They are determined by subtracting the person's age at the time of their demise from one hundred.  The younger the dearly departed, the more points they are worth.

It will be considered bad form to pick me - and I am not worth many points anyway!

And, there are prizes!  The person who scores the most points will win $50, second place will take home $25, and third place is worth $10.  There are no entry fees, so it's all coming out of my pocket.  Of course, I'm entering too - in hopes of saving myself a few bucks.

The deadline for entries is midnight in your time zone on January 15th.  You have just over a week to get those names in, so hop to it!

(Please tweet or otherwise forward this information along to others who might enjoy the challenge!)
