CDC Celebrity Dead Pool 2017

 

Pick 20 famous people you think might die in 2017. (There has to be some left after 2016)

Deaths must be confirmed by a web link.

In case of a tie, the winner will be the one with the lowest collective ages (of death).

Do not edit your submission or it will be disqualified.

Make your submissions anytime from today through 2017, deaths before your submission date will not count.

 

Note This is a Celebrity Dead Pool. You cannot simply select people just because they are old. They must be famous for something other then being old.

 

People up for state sponsored execution (death row) and hostages are excluded.

“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.”
—Mark Twain

 

This year's winner will be awarded Trevor Linden and Kirk McLean rookie cards. The cards are pictured below.

The cards are in mint condition.

 

Once the contest closes the winner will be contacted via private message on CDC and the cards will be shipped wherever they like.

 

Figured I'd give a heads up to last year's participants. @AriGold @Caboose @thejazz97 @BoKnows @gurn @Gyllenhaal @Lillooet_Hillbilly @LaBamba @Bill Sikes

2016 was bad enough. I'm blaming this dead pool for last year!

 

And to the person that put Clint Eastwood.

I would guess the no editing rule means AFTER Dec 31/16?  I edited mine to correct a couple of misspelled names, I wold also assume if someone on the list dies prior to Jan 1/17 it should be ok to replace them.

Nope, they have to pass in calendar year 2017. If someone on your list passes before the game starts just swap them out and submit a new entry.
