Former South Dakota governor Bill Janklow has died, which means that last year's Dead Pool champ, unregistered, gets off to an early start.

Okay, which one of you guys tried to run over Gene Hackman? That's taking things a little too far.

Sinead O'Connor is sadly a contender. I do hope she pulls it together, but I doubt it.

Gov. Janklow was a colossal scumbag. good riddance and thanks for all the points.

Predicting some big final scores this year.

(shrugs) I'll probably come in last place, unless some serious lightning strikes fall in my favor. This is what comes when you don't PLAY TO WIN.

Yeah, after taking Amy Winehouse off my final list and then having her die, my approach this year was to mostly go for younger musicians who've seemingly already hit bottom. (Or have been hospitalized for pneumonia due to an "undisclosed viral infection" who've had a partner die from certain other viral infections.) So mostly long shots that might or might not pay off.

IME big news like this always hits Twitter before the MSM... then again, a lot of Twitter rumors turn out to be total BS.
