(This page reads from the bottom up)


The 2021 OBE is well underway with 134 entries, and speaking of under, Tommy Lasorda and Sheldon Adelson have given us a running start into 2021. Bad for them, good for us.

The good news is all the 2020 OBE prize Winners have claimed their cash. The better news is we had some beer money left over (no idea how that happened, but we'll be having a stern conversation with our accountant and bartender) and we awarded a 4th place prize of $50 to "Terminated" who also had 8 hits.

The more better news is we've decided to add a 4th place award to the 2021 OBE!! That's $750 we'll give out at the end of the year. Cash. To you. Our players. If that's not worthy of drinking a pint we don't know what is.

The more more better news is there's STILL time to donate! We had 50% of our players donate for 2021. Wouldn't it be cool if that was 51%, or 52%? Just go to the website and click on the Paypal logo. Easy stuff. Don't like Paypal? Yep, just mail it in. Still easy stuff.

Very special thanks to two of our 2020 winners "Geritol Gangsters" and "Exoendo Zuzubar". They both generously donated money from their winnings back into the 2021 game. Classy.

Check out the website often for celebrity updates and standings. To quote Frank, "Cock your hat, angles are attitudes". Now, off to see that accountant and bartender...



Hmmm. What's all that furious clicking you've been hearing the past week or so? Is it the Grim Reaper spinning his "Wheel O' Death" trying to decide if Tanya Roberts is dead or alive? Nope. It's the OBE office staff pounding away on their trusty Commodore 64 to bring you the 2021 Old Blue Eyes Memorial Celebrity Death Watch! Go to our website flymetothetomb.com and behold the majesty of this year's game.

A couple of things we need from you. Please check your entries for accuracy. A lot of care is taken to ensure the entries are typed in correctly, but alas there is a lot of beer consumption by the staff during the process and there may be an occasional finger slip. Also, if you made a donation (and we love you if you did) please check the "Much Thanks!" page for your name. We want to make sure everyone that donated received credit! If you didn't donate, shame on you, but you STILL have time to donate, just click the PayPal logo at the bottom of the website, or you can mail a donation as well! Your generosity keeps the website going and allows us to award fabulous prizes.

Speaking of prizes (see how we did that?) here are 2020 OBE winners:

First - Mirax Darkheart 8,12 $400
Tied for Second - Exoendo Zuzubar 8,10 $150
Tied for Second - Geritol Gangsters 8,10 $150

Mirax Darkheart is a first-time player. This is Exoendo Zuzubar's third time to finish in the money and Geritol Gangster's first. We will be reaching out to these players in the next few days to send out your prize money. Huge congrats to these players!

While you are on the website also check out the statistics page for an insanely detailed breakout and analysis of all the entries this year. And the celebrity with the most plays for 2021 is... Prince Philip!! Ol' Phil barely edged out Jimmy Carter 83 picks to 81.

In the words of Detective Benoit Blan... the game is afoot! Now, time for a few cold ones at the pub...

That's right! Registration for the 2022 OBE is well underway and entries are coming in daily.

Don't miss out on your chance to be part of a year's worth of fun. You can copy the entry form from the website, fill out your entries, and submit it by email to flymetothetomb@gmail.com. If you are feeling nostalgic you can print out the form and mail it to The OBE Memorial, PO Box 1454, St. Joseph, MO, 64502-1454. Entries must be postmarked by December 31th or they will be filed conveniently in the shredder.
