My 2016 Performances

I am in four this year. I already regret being in one, not because of the quality of the list but the arbitrary whims and poor wording of its administratrix I was ruled out of a fair and valid dead pool pick.

Dead Pool A

10-item list. Pay for play. Five stiffs to date. Fanfare. 162 points. WON FIRST PLACE

Dead Pool B

40-item list. Nine stiffs to date. 76 points. Text file. RANKED 13 out of 61.

Dead Pool B2

40-item list. I had 119 possibilities, eighty of them very strong. Running under an alias. Eight stiffs to date. 59 points.

Dead Pool C

13-item list. Four stiffs to date. 71 points.

My 2015 Performances

Dead Pool A

10-item list. Two deaths. 58 points. 7th place. The year before, I won. Six entrants failed to score at all.

Dead Pool B

40-item list. Six deaths. 52 points. 13th place (tie). The year before I was in sixth place with probably 68 points. If I bothered with Stuart Scott and Sam Simon I'd be in a higher place. Six entrants failed to score at all.

Dead Pool C

13-item list. Three deaths, two accounted for officially. Seven points. Did not locate/identify placement. Fifty-three people failed to score at all in 2015. Year before I had, I think, 18 points or more.
