Come on in, the water's fine



The 2007 Dead Pool is now open.

Here's the basic set-up: you pick 10 celebrities. If any of your chosen names die in the year 2007, you get a point. Whoever has the most points on January 1st, 2008 is the winner.

Ground rules:

1) At least five of your choices must be under 50, and two of those must be under 30. (Wikipedia and The Internet Movie Database can help with age verification).
2) All of your choices must be celebrities. "Ted's granddad" is not an option.
3) None of your choices could have appeared in Cocoon or Cocoon: The Return. (Except Steve Guttenberg. He's allowed).
4) One. Rapper. Only.
5) The contest starts on January 10th, so keep your Darrent Williams submissions to yourself.
6) The winner will get a $5 payout from all participants at the conclusion of the contest (the more people that play, the more moolah - so spread the word).
7) Final lists must be submitted to joshmassey@mindspring.com by January 10th. Once all lists are in, I will make them public on Ye Olde Blog. My list is already complete, and can be seen upon submission of yours (I don't want you to think I'm getting my ideas from you, punchy).

Yes, it's morbid. Just think, though: if you had played in 2006, you could have greeted the news of Gerald Ford's passing with an oh-so-slight fist pump while proclaiming that, yes, it was too bad.

Can we have a divorce pool too? Less morbid, but equally as entertaining.
