Death! Conrad Bain! 2013 Pool Underway!
Welcome back! The new year looks good on you! But it hasn’t started out so well for Mr. Drummond. Conrad Bain, Death Pool fixture and TV icon from Maude and Diff’rent Strokes, becomes the first person to expire between pools and still award points to a team! It had to happen sooner or later, and this is the precise reason the rules were changed. You’ve got a keeper you’ve held onto for a long time, and they sneak off while we’re on hiatus – that’s a hell of an inconsiderate thing to happen, no?
So, Capone is the beneficiary of 21 big points, and is first on the board, here in 2013! Well done! We’re still four days until the draft, but we’re already aiming at cracking the 2012 record for deaths. Pride swells in the heart of the commissioner. Good luck out there, teams!
(Once we have a definite list of participants and such, there will be some revelations about new divisions – so we don’t just have a huge list of standings off to the right here. Just FYI.)
