    Yes, New York's peak date was supposed to be yesterday or perhaps today. California's peak is expected to be in about a week and a half or two weeks away.

    Dammit, "Let It Ride" is one of my favorite comedies of all time. Every character in that movie plays their part perfectly, including Garfield as Greenberg. I wasn't aware that he had been in a long-term care facility since '04 because of a massive stroke, though.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Tom Dempsey, the former NFL kicker who famously made a 63-yard FG in 1970 (on the final play to win the game), has died from complications of the coronavirus. His 63-yard boot was the NFL record solely for 28 years and was shared for another 15 years after that, before Matt Prater broke the record with a 64-yarder in 2013. His kick was even more famous because Dempsey was born without toes on his right foot (his kicking foot), and he wore a special shoe with a flattened toe surface. Apparently Dempsey had battled Alzheimer's and dementia since 2012, and tested positive for COVID-19 on March 25 at the nursing home in New Orleans where he resided. Four days ago it was announced that he had recovered, but the good news was short-lived, obviously. At least 15 residents of the Lambeth House retirement home have now died from the virus, according to the Times-Picayune. Dempsey was 73.

    But he's got such a long way to go. (Such a long way to go!)

    Ryan O'Neal

    There's really nothing new in this, but I have him on my top 50 list for a reason. With that history of drug abuse, the history of health problems, and as frail as he's been for a while, I think he's a solid under-the-radar bet. Plus his son, Patrick O'Neal (who is a Los Angeles-area sports reporter), has been unafraid recently to say how much he loves his dad and there was that article in the LA Times last year about the gym they opened together (they recently had to close it down due to the coronavirus outbreak). I don't know, it just feels like Patrick doesn't want the world to forget his father, and maybe that's because he doesn't have much time left. Maybe I'm misreading that but I just have a hunch. I also failed to mention that Patrick has campaigned this year on Twitter to get his father a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He says his father doesn't care one bit but that he's the one that cares about it. Could be that he wants his dad to get that recognition while he's still alive.

    NFL reporter Mike Freeman tweeted that former standout offensive lineman Tony Boselli (who was oft-injured, so save those jokes!) has been hospitalized with the 'rona in the Jacksonville area. Says he was initially in the ICU and that he's doing better but is still receiving treatment.

    New York Knicks owner James Dolan tests positive. The Knicks say he is experiencing "little to no symptoms."

    Former MLB baseball player Jim Edmonds is hospitalized with COVID-like symptoms and underwent a test, so we might have to add him to the list. He's only 49 years of age.
