This guy is (was) a big hero of mine. His real name is Pedro Antonio Marin. I'm very sad and angry that he is dead. If you have the chance, go and find something about him. You can achieve inspiration of him too for sure.
But at least it's my first hit on the Handrejka Pool of Death! :P As we say in Macedonia (translated), "There's always something living under every stone.". It means like "ok, every bad thing has at minimum *something* good happening in the same time of it".

Not a unique pick, shamedly. DDT and Swoed of Damocles also have him on Handpoolofdeath. :D If I had used his real named, I would have unique pick status and bonus points, for sh*t is sake.

I'm not sure if he's going to get us any points - according to this BBC article he died on the 26th March, 6 weeks before the PoolofDeath got going and two weeks before I mentioned him on the ideas thread. :D

Is that actually confirmed, DDT as the last I heard, Colombian government sources were checking the validity of the reports?

After all the man has "died" more times than Derby County have lost a game this season.

The only reason I ask is DDP points would be awarded, March or no March, though it throws the DDP history in a tizzy... are hits consecutive now he's gone in March? Ah well, I'll think of an answer.

EDIT The Army are saying he is dead too and have named a successor, which means if all this is true, then, far from being the first time, The Miami Herald is full of sh*t if Marulanda was meeting Venezulan officials last week... :P

Either way, I might just hang on a little bit longer before I update the DDP site, especially as I have nothing else to update at the same time.

It would be worth waiting for more information - you might also need to consider awarding unnatural death bonus points. He's certainly dead, but there seems to be some dispute about if he died of a heart attack, prostate cancer or was blown to smithereens in a bombing raid which took place that day.

This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Heinz Kwiatkowski, goalkeeper in the 1954 World Cup winning squad for West Germany, has died. He didn't play in the final, partly because he let 8 in against the Hungarians when the teams met for the first time in the tournament. West germany won the re-match in the final 3-1.......
