    2014 Celebrity Death Pool

    It's time to get ready for the 8th annual Celebrity Death Pool! Start compiling your lists for 2014. Rules are:

    - Pick 25 celebrities that you think may pass away during 2014.
    - Points are earned based on age. 100 minus their age. So if someone on your list dies and was 88 years old, you earn 12 points. If someone was 24, you earn 76 points.
    - Celebrities are allowed per my approval. They need to be pretty well known. George Clooney's nephew does not count, but Michael Lohan would be allowed. I'll notify you if someone on your list doesn't meet the criteria.
    - Winner will receive a prize TBD.

    - Send completed lists to me here via PM. Lists will be accepted through Jan 6th, 2014. Let me know if you have any questions.
    If Twins can't re-sign Hunter, plans are to trade, sign a FA or go in-house to find a replacement.

    Musk - I tried PM'ing you my list, it told me you're inbox was full and you couldn't receive any more messages until you clear some space.

    Let me know if there's somewhere else I should send it, or if I can post it here.
