Growing Dead

Pulitzer-prize winning author Russell Baker has died at 93, and Natalie Tyler's Old Writers Never Die.... List picks up the solo on her first hit of the year and moves up to 4th place.

Congratulations, Natalie!


Goodbye, Dolly!

Wow, we're off to a big start with our second hit in 2 days, as our Seventh most-picked of the year has died. Carol Channing was 97, and 13 people picked her, including Kelly Keegan's List 2, which now has 2 hits. On January 15th. (One of these days I've GOT to get around to making the year-to-year compare thingy that I keep putting off*).

Getting their first hit of the game: Katy Conlin's List 2, Jimmy Casino, Rich Place's Barley Place—Older than me List, Michelle Downey, Shelley Brown's List 1, John Downey, Judith Place, Lindsey Roke, Toe Tag and Natalie Tyler's Golden Oldies, I`m Ready for my Close-Up, Mr. Reaper and Let`s Hear It For the Girls Lists.

Congratulations, everyone!

* A quick perusal of the archives reminds us that Brad Hope had 2 hits on January 4, 2015. Guess we'll have to keep an eye on earliest-to-3 now!



Old-timey baseball guy Mel Stottlemyre has died at 77 and opens up the game with a triple: Joe Biasi, Kelly Keegan's List 2 and Brave Sir Robin all get the hit, and start crowding the top of the standings.

Congrats, all!


2019 KDP is now LIVE!

The 2018 edition of Kaufman's Deadpool is over, and a big congratulations goes out to Kelly Keegan, who was the only player to get 5 hits and takes home 75% of the collected $620 pot, or $465.

Natalie Tyler came in both second and third place, earning 15% ($93) + 10% ($62), for a total of $155.

We've got 67 entries this year - a few people didn't return (but they're all welcome back for 2020!), and one new player: Christina O`Sullivan, who is a referral from Natalie Tyler.

Now that the game is all fully updated on the site, please take a moment and verify that I've got your lists entered correctly and let me know ASAP of any errors.

Congratulations, everyone! Good luck to all in 2019!
