Bobby Bowden, 90, Beating Covid

Bobby Bowden, the legendary former Florida State head coach who turns 91 in November, was hospitalized last week after testing positive and sustaining symptoms of coronavirus. Great news: Bowden tested negative for Covid-19 and is slated to head home from the hospital, where he's been for eight days, on Wednesday.

"I have been blessed, really," Bowden told Jim Henry of the Tallahassee Democrat. "People are dying from this."

Bowden said that having coronavirus was "no fun," that the loss of appetite was the worst part, and that he can't wait to get home and sit in the sunshine.
