The Celebrity Death Pool 2013

Yes, folks in prison, even on Death Row, would be allowed if they die by other than legal execution. So Timothy McVeigh didn’t get his choosers any points, since he died by lethal injection, at the hands of the state.

It looks like Meyers is the correct spelling. I remember looking it up last sure to make sure. Looks like he’s still having problems with alcoholism. [del]Yay[/del], I mean, poor guy.

Prediction-At least 1 non-carryover drops dead.

Actually, Wikipedia says it’s

Muhammad Ali and

Jonathan Rhys (no hyphen) Meyers.

I thought about my list in October, but it was too early. Now, here it is December again, and I am listless. Better check out the immortals on this year’s list before I commit to one for next. I really thought I would have done better this year. I really should listen to my mother. She has given me some excellent advice on this venture before. I have a bad feeling I am going to be posting drunk on New Year’s Eve again.
