    Here we go folks for a third rush down the floor - we have 1 week for veteran and new players to make their picks - have fun trying to guess whom Fate or the Grim Reaper will tap next!

    Congrats to The_Vukster for winning Dead Pool II – Joey Bishop is the final member to join “The Rat Pack” reunion at the great casino in the sky. Losers have to display their dead logos until Saturday, November 17th.

    I hope 10 more board members will have the whimsy to join in on our game during the coming week.

    Dead Pool III goes into play at 12:00 AM, Friday the 26th of October...get your picks in or updated before then!

    DEAD POOL RULES - GAME III

    1. All previous NLLMB Dead Pool I & II players (veterans) and their picks are automatically re-entered in the next game with their previous pick, or new pick if required by circumstances. Veterans have until before 12:00 AM, Friday, 26 October 2007 (the deadline)if they wish to discard and change their original pick. Any discarded pick will immediately be eligible for selection by any other player,
    2.) New players wishing to join the NLLMB Dead Pool game are limited to the next 10 NLLMB members that post an eligible pick in this thread, or are submitted by the deadline, whichever occurs first...
    3.) Picks cannot be repeated, and no more than one pool entry per board member, and are taken on a first come, first serve basis as determined by the post date and time.
    4.) All picks must be alive at the deadline, which is also the start of the Dead Pool III game,
    5.) The pick must be listed in Wikipedia,
    6.) Players cannot pick a person that is incarcerated on death row, held hostage under the threat of execution, Missing in Action (MIA) as a result of serving on active military duty, or a person that has gone/been declared missing in a remote or dangerous place under circumstances where it would be reasonable to assume that they may be dead before the game starts,
    7.) The winner is determined by the first pick that dies of any cause,
    8.) Wikipedia will be used to determine pick eligibility and confirm the winner; and
    9.) Dead Pool losers will have to display the Avatar of a "DEAD" franchise (defunct or suspended before October 16th, 2007) of their choice for a period of one month immediately following a win by a player..

    I think I'll move my pick...

    ...but not too far

    If Lindsay is going to settle in Utah, she might die of boredom, but now I think Britney Spears is a better bet to join the "Rat Pack in the Sky".

    I am surprised that this guy hasn't been taken yet...but for my new pick, I will go with the creator of LSD...Albert Hoffman born January 11, 1906.

    And let's see those Smash logos... :D

    I was going to Britney! Too slow on the draw. It's crazy to think of Britney sharing the stage with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. etc...

    I'll have to think about my current or new pick like ammispapa. thrillis, maybe old Henry is just too spry to go anytime soon.

    My pick is staying LaMotta, if he dies and I don't have him I'll be pissed

    Congrats to the Vulkster

    I'm going to release Ed McMahon and go with Oral Roberts. I think the stress of his son being relieved of his duties of ORU might just get to him. He is 89 so I think his time is limited.

    ParrotBayTaz dropped Fidel Castro go at the beginning of Dead Pool II, since we haven't seen any propaganda photos recently, the old dictator maybe on life support.

    I'm going to take Fidel!

    Missed the Axis of Evil Club Telecast

    I've been working too hard to miss that new story. I'll call that "a propaganda stunt".

    I'll stick with Fidel anyway, even though I have until midnight Thursday to change my mind...

    In the meanwhile, maybe I can get Zidane to visit Castro in his hospital room to finish him off ;) :rotfl:

    I think I'll change mine to:
    Tony Snow He has been battling Cancer for a couple years and the last time I seen a picture of him on T.V. he looked pretty rough.

    Wow...what a jerk this guy must be...I read the wiki link...
    "On August 30th, Snow announced that he would step down from his position on September 14th, 2007. He said he had taken a major pay cut to become press secretary and that he could no longer raise his family on his $168,000 salary."

    I read that. But it also says the facts are in dispute so obviously he's denying he said that. Maybe the three rounds of Radiation and chemo has gone to his head. Please can someone pay me 168,000 a year? :D

    I think it would take me a year or two before I could even figure out how to spend that much a year!

    hmm. after going over some things, evil knievil is starting to look mighty tempting..

    its funny though, in most dead pools, my pick would put me in negative points if he croaks :rotfl:
