As you may or may not know, the CDP is an annual tradition here at HP. It used to be hosted by a very funny guy named rockinjoe.
For some reason that escapes me at the moment, ralwus invited me to moderate it for 2010. And so I did. Ralwus -- do you remember the circumstances?
Anyway, I'm assuming that the CDP will continue next year.
I'm posting today with an idea and a question:
IDEA: What would you think about moving the deadline up so that all predictions need to be in by December 31, 2010 for the 2011 pool? I think it makes a lot of sense.
QUESTION: Does anyone have the desire to host/moderate CDP 2011?
There is no official precedent, so I am happy to pass the mantle, or just as happy to do another stint.
Thanks for your input! Here's to another successful pool. MM
Thought I would post a link to last year's hub if people are still a bit confused (I was till I found it.)
Wow, just checked that hub out again and realized one of my pics did indeed die this year. I kind of feel bad too he was a decent actor, Dennis Hopper. And since I jumped the gun on Swayze, I'll just stick with my other 8 picks for the next list and I'll add a couple I particularly despise.
Doh! Thank you WryLit for posting the link.
I guess technically I could not have done that (even if I had thought of it -- which I did NOT) because it would be self-promoting my own hub. Kinda.
livewithrichard -- you have proved yourself to be an adept "player" in this pool. Will look forward to your official predictions for 2011. MM
