It first started like a silly joke but after four very famous deaths, we are starting to get worried, more like scared.
First it was former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, then world terrorist Osama Bin Laden followed by Apple founder Steve Jobs and most recently ‘Queen of Pop’Whitney Houston. But what do these famous people have in common other than the fact that they are dead?
Well it’s none other than 21-year-old Welsh Arsenal FC footballer Aaron Ramsey. The last time four times Ramsey has scored in the past year, the above mentioned famous people have died.
