I've played only once before, in 2006. I got 16 points, and shared The Inside Track With the Grim Reaper Award, for my sole correctly predicted death of sci-fi author Stanislaw Lem. Let's see if I do any better in 2020:

Andrey Myagkov
Igor Smirnov
Ralph Bakshi
Franz Vranitzky
Igor Plotnitsky
Mátyás Szűrös
Nursultan Nazarbayev
Ion Iliescu
Michael Apted
Richard Condie
Cynthia Solomon
Ward Christensen
Mohammed Magariaf

Alternates:

Abdul Ati al-Obeidi
Eric S. Raymond

(To clarify, Richard Condie is the filmmaker, not the Anglican bishop.)

Unreal...my first time whiffing on this probably since we started doing it here.

Well, I know they won't officially count, what with me stumbling in nearly 24 hours too late, but I'm dropping these in just for posterity.

3. Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins
4. Rapper and trainwreck Aaron Carter
5. Delays singer Greg Gilbert
6. Actor David Prowse
7. Singer Shane MacGowan
8. Rapper 6ix9ine (Daniel Hernandez)
9. Game show host Alex Trebek
10. Record producer Phil Spector
11. Soccer player Jimmy Greaves
12. Producer Harvey Weinstein
13. Shitbag Donald Wildmon

Stripped, alphabetized list:
6ix9ine
Aaron Carter
Alex Trebek
David Prowse
Donald Wildmon
Frankie Banali
Greg Gilbert
Harry Reid
Harvey Weinstein
Ian Watkins
Jimmy Greaves
Phil Spector

Is that the fastest list post to first death we've seen in the death pool? If Stern's death was first reported about two hours ago, so I'm guessing there was about 12 hours between the list posting and the first death?

The AP article says he died today.
Quote:
David Stern, the basketball-loving lawyer who took the NBA around the world during 30 years as its longest-serving commissioner and oversaw its growth into a global powerhouse, died Wednesday. He was 77.

I wonder if we could have some sort of immortal contest where we have winners based on which posters did the worst. For example, I looked at my 2009 list and I have 8-alive and 5-dead. That's from 11 years ago, and that's how poorly I've done.

We could have categories for "Worst Poster" or possibly the longest living person chosen on a death list or others I haven't thought of.

I have a clear memory of the game five years ago when Mario Cuomo paid off on New Years Day and there was much celebration and dancing in the handbaskets.

Well, I do declare. Consider me officially rebuked. I withdraw my insinuation that your mental state is not quite up to scratch. You're obviously a very stable genius.

The death of David Stern is not a record for earliest death, it's more of a tie.

In 2015 we had two deaths on Jan.1, Jeff Golub and Mario Cuomo.

RobotDevilDog and phungi win the Opening Kickoff award! May they enjoy their time in first place.

Yeah, I saw that crazy rant before the mods excised rosemurray's posting history here. You'd asked if it was a joke or a conspiracy theory - guess we found out!

For those who missed it, this now ex-poster claimed at considerable length that Ruth Bader Ginsburg's been dead since last January, and the Deep State has covered this up with the use of body doubles and stuff.
