W4life missed on captain Noah last week.
Did we never get to Dead Pool 41? Couts pick of Zsa Zsa Gabor finally died:
Only 7 people played Dead Pool 40? I remember when this thread had 25+ players in it.
I miss the old message board days
Yeah...so many people dropped out and the boards are so quiet, so I didn't think there was still much interest in it.
In other words, choosing Dead Pool XLI would have won you Dead Pool XLI
LOL...now that was funny!
Well, my long-time non-pick but recommendation of "Professor" Irwin Corey, "The World's Foremost Authority", has died at age 102. He outlived Jack La Lanne who was two months younger but died 6 years ago.
The New York Times had a nice obit prepared - especially since they did a fun article on him in 2011.
Meanwhile, the Cylons finally got him...
Richard Hatch, Who Starred in ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ Dies at 71
Actor Bill Paxton and actor and basketball player Neil Fingleton just passed.
Also Judge Wapner died at 91.
1. The 36-year old 7-foot-7 Fingleton was on Game of Thrones, I believe. I never watch the show, but I believe his NYT obit said that. He died of heart failure.
2. In Apollo 13, Bill Paxton played astronaut Fred Haise. Fred is still alive at 83 despite almost dying in an extraordinary way (in space with the whole world watching), yet 47 years later, despite all of those technological improvements since 1970, Bill is dead at age 61 from "complications from surgery".
Wapner was 97.
0 minutes to Wapner..
Ha ha! Nice reference! Forgot about that.
I don't get it...
Oh yeah. I never saw Rainman completely. It was on a few months ago, but I wasn't watching closely. However, on one of those Hollywood news shows, they discussed Wapner's death and showed a scene where Tom Cruise asked to go into some strange woman's home just to watch The People's Court otherwise Dustin Hoffman's character was going to have a meltdown right there on her porch because he was missing it.
Wow! Saturday night we were out with another couple and we were talking about Chuck Berry dying. I joked to my buddy..."Oh, the host of the Gong Show". Ironically, Chuck Barris died yesterday.
The host of “The Gong Show” and the creative force behind “The Dating Game,” “The Newlywed Game” and many other game shows died of natural causes Tuesday at 87 in Palisades, N.Y., his publicist announced.
Barris loaded ’60s and ’70s television with game shows, and later made waves when in an autobiography he claimed to be an assassin for the CIA, which the agency flatly denied. This book was adapted into a feature film “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.”
