Doyle Brunson 16th Most Likely to Kick the Bucket in 2009?
Jan 23 2009 - 10:22am
Poker pro Doyle Brunson is not all that thrilled to have learned he made the list of the "100 most likely celebs to die in 2009". You read that right, there is actually a "Blend Celebrity Bucket List" and they listed poor Doyle as 16th most likely.
"Some clown who produces the, "Blend Celebrity Bucket List", put the 100 most likely celebs to die in 2009. Guess who he had at #16? That's right, me," an angry Brunson roared. "To start with, I don't consider myself a celebrity, so I don't qualify. But, if I did, I sure don't have any plans for kicking the bucket anytime soon and surely not in 2009. He should check on my family genes, both sides lived up into their 90's. He should talk to my doctor and get my blood pressure results, my 140 reading on my cholesterol and the raves my cardiologist gives me on my EKG's. 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, in fact, is a true survivor who conquered cancer at an early age.
In 1962, a tumor was discovered in his neck. When it was operated on, the surgeons found that the cancer had spread and declared it incurable. They felt that an operation would prolong his life enough for him to see the birth of the baby, so they went ahead with it. After the operation, no trace of the cancer could be found. The doctors said that his recovery must have been a miracle, and Brunson has attributed his recovery to the prayers of friends of his wife and their correspondence with Kathryn Kuhlman, a self-proclaimed Christian faith healer.
