Well, it's a new year and it was kicked off by Gerry and his Pacemaker

Copying last year’s list as is my tradition.

Phil the Greek, must be a sure thing by now.

Murray Walker, is he still alive?

Morgen Freeman, the rumours will come true one day.

Tragedy pick: Keith Richards, pickling clearly works.

    I thought I'd fish out the full rules and this was started 10 years ago by Bails

    Stolen from another forum.....

    t's a fun* new game to play, for 2011. And yes, it's in poor taste. Yes, it's morbid...if you're likely to be offended, then don't play, don't read the thread. We don't actively try and kill people, nor revel in their deaths**. It's a fact of life.



    The Rules

    1. Choose three celebrities who you think may depart from this existence during 2011. 10 points for each one.


    2. Choose one additional TRAGEDY PICK - a celebrity less than fifty years of age who you think may shuffle off this mortal coil before the end of 20011 Twenty points for this one.


    3. On the death of one of your team, you may pick another to replace them.


    4. I'll decide who's a "celebrity" or not. I'm sure you can guess who qualifies.


    To enter, post your four names below. A scorecard might be drawn up.





    *Actual fun may vary.



    I'll start things off:

    1. Margaret Thatcher

    2.Bruce Forsyth

    3.Nelson Mandela


    TRAGEDY PICK


    Gazza.



    **You can revel if you want!

    Not sure how I'll top 2020 given I got a hat trick :) Better go have a think about this one...

    I'm guessing nobody had Dustin Diamond?

    The bell didn't save him.

    No way - they just did a reboot too.
  • Captain Sir Tom Moore.

    I hope the timeline of events don't suggest he went to Barbados instead of getting his first vaccine jab, before getting pneumonia.

    Much preferred his performance in Silent Partner.
    There's a film that doesn't age well with PC considerations.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Mary Wilson, Supreme singer of Motown

    My son will be sad to hear this. He worked with her a couple of years back when she was singing with Bill Wyman and the Rythm Kings. He got on well with her and helped her through the airport as well when they were getting their flights.Thought she was a nice lady.

    The Saint has gone.

    LFC legend Ian Saint John has died at reg age of 82.

    Was too young to see him play, but remember looking forward for watching Saint and Greavsie at the weekend when there was very little footy on TV and too young to stay up for MOTD.

    I don't know - I think he'd get away with that still. And cracking goal by Whelan.
  • elbowlohelbowloh Posts: 6,797
    Yeah, they'd get away with that. There's been similar in things like This Morning or Loose Women.

    Sad news. Great fighter, and I mean one of the greats.
    The three rounds vs Tommy Hearns were incredible.

    😔 Hell of a fighter, one of the greats.
