Raises glass to DDT .. had the best of times in death last year.

Well done DDT, I don't think you've had anywhere near enough props for back to back wins - I doubt that will be equalled for a good while. I'm happy to have been the world's second best deadpooler over the past three years, if you believe the stats and consider the DDP to be its premier league, especially since I have no more idea what a spreadsheet is than Sam Allardyce does.

Glad to be taking a sabbatical; reminds me of the pleasure of giving up fantasy football a few years back.

21st by far my best result so far

Although :banghead: at not playing it safe and putting the joker on Etta James or Robin Gibb

My main team was equal 488th, with no points for no hits.

So was my first theme team.

So was my second theme team.

Needless to say, this was my worst performance ever.

I have just checked mine and I am equal 36th. Very happy with that I expected to be about 200 - 300th. My best was 2010 when I was joint 33rd, considering that I scrabble round on Hogmanay and pick a team without much forethought or research (it takes me about 20 minutes) I don't think that is a bad result. I never expect to win but am happy to be in the top 100 :) .

Curiously, my theme team did way better than my normal one.

That will not be the case in 2013...

Despite winning it in 2010, I actually consider this year and 5th place, to be my best year performance wise - I think it's my highest ever points total and equal highest hit total. I also think the quality of opposition is even better every year.

Well done to everyone and to TMIB for another year of fine running.

The theme team is just a bit of a laugh really.

My team are recipients of the Order of the British Empire. Handily for me they give them out to every Tom, Dick, and Harry these days...

Depending on the Montalcini points (and she got all the necessary obits), I was somewhere between 70 and 80 (admittedly joint), with 7/20. For a debut season I don't think thats half bad, especially given how I came up with half the names at a guess in a last minute decision to join in.

Now watch 2nd season syndrome kick in...
