You would have be like the guy living under the rock from the old GEICO commercial to not see it coming.

Really? Even though 90% of the posts in this thread have been made by you?

I'm curious, how familiar were you with Van Cliburn before you found out about "Celebrity Death Pool"?

There was very little better entertainment than the time Paul Bearer and the Undertaker sealed the Ultimate Warrior in the casket.

In my world he's very famous, and his 'victory' over the 'cold war Soveit Union' (in 1958) was as great as the U.S. hockey victory in 1980; again, in my world. Wouldn't be truly surprising someone else was familiar with him. However, he was a very famous person that announced in late August that he had bone cancer. wouldn't take much, when compiling a death list, to google 'famous people with cancer' and come up with a few notables to put on one's list.

Oh man, I can't remember this year's list. But I know I have had him on in the past. Hopefully I included him this year.
