Death Pool 2013 – The Mayans Were Wrong Edition

Filed under: — Jaime @ 3:58 am

Were it not for Julian’s kind reminder, I might not have considered reviving the Death Pool. In fact, the last time I hosted the Death Pool (2009), one of the players, our dear friend Wertz, died that year (yes, for real). For what I hope are obvious reasons, I shied away from playing since.

It’s been three years. Julian wants to play. I sort of miss playing. Plus, Wertz would have wanted us to play. He loved Death Pool. So – I suppose I’ll host one again. The rules are pretty much the same as 2009, with the prize being the same as well. Post your picks here or email me with your list if you want to play – jaime @ americasdebate.com. Feel free to invite anyone you want to play as well. I’ll take all reasonable submissions. I’ll post a comprehensive list of everyone’s picks once they’re in. I guess I should give a deadline to submit your list of 11:59p edt, December 31, 2012. You know, if the world hasn’t ended by then.

Rules Recap:
Submit to me 10 names of celebrities/well-known people that you think will die in 2013. The people on your list cannot currently be hospitalized (care facilities like nursing homes and drug/alcohol rehab are ok, though), nor can they be on death row. If the person on your list can not easily be found by a wikipedia or google search, then that person is not famous enough to be valid. I recommend not copying someone’s list 100%, that’s rude and lazy. If one of your picks happens to pass away after you submit your list but before the end of 2012, you will be permitted to pick a replacement. If there’s a tie in the end, winner will be decided by whomever’s picks died earlier in the year.
