Doyle Brunson: I'm not going to die in 2009
The "Blend Celebrity Bucket List", listed the 100 most likely celebs to die in 2009, and put poker's Grand Old Man Doyle Brunson at place 16.
Doyle has responded on his blog and says that he will be around for a long time. He refers to his family genes, ("both sides lived up into their 90's"), and his good test results for blood pressure, cholesterol and EKG's.
The 75-year-old is prepared to make a bet with the "clown" who made the list.
"He said obesity would cause my death. He should have seen me 5 years ago when I was 130 lbs heavier. Anyway, he said it was a 10% chance I would die. I would like to lay 10-1 for any amount if anybody knows this joker," Brunson said on his blog.
We wouldn't recommend the list-making guy to take Brunson up on this bet. First of all, we think (and dearly hope) that he will lose, and even if he wins, how is Brunson going to pay him?
