I remember his 64 yard kick.

On March 30, 2020, Dempsey tested positive for COVID-19 during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. He was one of 15 residents at a New Orleans senior residence to test positive for the virus. He died on April 4 due to previous health complications after contracting the virus

He apparently had terrible dementia/Alzheimers (since 2013). Certainly not saying it's not sad news, but at least for him, I'm sure his quality of life was long ago diminished. May have been a mixed blessing.

Bobby Mitchell died...
For Immediate Release
April 5, 2020

STATEMENT FROM WASHINGTON REDSKINS OWNER DAN SNYDER ON THE PASSING OF HALL OF FAMER BOBBY MITCHELL:

“I was extremely saddened to hear the news about the passing of the great Bobby Mitchell. Bobby was a Hall of Fame player and executive and represented the Washington Redskins organization with integrity for over 50 years. His passion for the game of football was unmatched by anyone I have ever met. Not only was he one of the most influential individuals in franchise history, but he was also one of the greatest men I have ever known. He was a true class act and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Gwen and the entire Mitchell family during this time."

Honor Blackmon who played "Pussy Galore' in Goldfinger passed yesterday at 94

Dang. I watched that movie about 4 times in the past week. It’s been on TV a bunch lately and with nothing to do, why not watch a classic.

Yeah not a huge Bond fan but they’re definitely alright to get your spy movie on. We just found out via Shudder that Tales From the Crypt was rebooted so we’ve been watching those a little bit lately.

John Prine, one of my favorite musicians, killed by COVID-19. So sad.

My heart's in the ice house come hill or come valley
Like a long ago Sunday when I walked through the alley
On a cold winter's morning to a church house
just to shovel some snow.

Brian Dennehy -81.

I was born in 79, so growing up in the 80s obsessed with tv and movies made him a regular on my tv screen, he was awesome.

With all the great things he did, it was a line from Tommy Boy that I always have stuck in my head when I see him or hear his name now...

"You can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bull's ass, but wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it?"
