Heartening to be back from hospital, praying for Abhishek: Amitabh

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he has immense gratitude for the doctors who provided him with medical care for COVID-19 and feels overwhelmed to be free of the virus finally.

Amitabh, on Sunday, tested negative for the novel coronavirus and was discharged from the hospital.

The 77-year-old actor was admitted to Nanavati hospital along with son Abhishek after testing positive for COVID-19 on July 11. Abhishek, 44, is still positive and will remain under medical care.

“It has been heartening to be back from the Hospital after the Mukti’ from the coronavirus but a sour taste in the mouth when Abhishek has to still be in the medical care,” Amitabh wrote in his blog.

The actor said doctors are tirelessly working towards battling the virus “each hour” through consultation, sharing of information and experience with their fraternity from other parts of the world which gives “the hope of repair.”

“Assuring us each minute that all shall be well’, when in fact they themselves struggle to find that confirmed patent that can be used, delivered, executed to save lives and conditions from the virus.

“When I had addressed them as ‘angels in white’ I had never imagined that I would be supine in their midst to savour their angelic presence, as they give us hope, inspiration and the strength to fight. They are quite remarkable. My gratitude shall never fail for them… feeling bad for Abhishek .. prayers he comes home soon,” he added.

On Sunday, Abhishek thanked well-wishers for their continued support and said he would remain under medical care.

“I, unfortunately, due to some comorbidities remain COVID-19 positive and remain in hospital. Again, thank you all for your continued wishes and prayers for my family. Very humbled and indebted. I’ll beat this and come back healthier! Promise,” he wrote.

Abhishek’s wife, actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, 46, and eight-year-old daughter Aaradhya were discharged from the hospital on Monday after testing negative for COVID-19.

Woman killed in Anaheim found in pickup after San Diego County crash; suspect arrested

Deputies found the body of a woman possibly killed in Anaheim on Friday, July 31, inside a pickup that crashed in San Diego County, and took the vehicle’s owner into custody.

Jessie Villesca, 56, of Anaheim was identified as the woman found in a Toyota Tundra driven by Abdulaziz Munther Alubidy, 30, also of Anaheim, Anaheim Police Department officials said in a Sunday news release.

Shane Carringer said.

Villesca died before the collision took place, and sustained injures that led investigators to suspect that she was the victim of a homicide. Deptuies detained Alubidy at the scene, and he was later booked in Anaheim on suspicion of murder.

AVP Champions Cup: April Ross, Alix Klineman win third consecutive title

Top-seeded April Ross and Alix Klineman are used to playing in beach volleyball championship matches. But when they took on fourth-seeded Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil on Sunday for the title in the third and final leg of the AVP Champions Cup series, they did so knowing their opponents were coming off an impressive semifinal victory over defending world champions Sarah Pavan and Melissa Humana-Paredes.

It was no problem for Ross and Klineman as they defeated Claes and Sponcil 21-18, 21-17 in the championship match, completing a hat trick by winning all three titles in the series that was contested over consecutive weekends without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic.

There was a total of $700,000 in prize money.

Although the win came in straight sets, Klineman, of Manhattan Beach, said it was anything but easy.

“First of all, we have a lot of respect for them as a team” she said. “We’ve trained against them a bunch, especially leading up to these three events, and so we’ve seen how much they’ve improved.

“And I think we could just tell that they were fired up today and we knew that we were going to have to match their energy and their intensity.”

Ross, of Costa Mesa, talked about what, in her mind, is the most difficult thing about winning on three consecutive Sundays.

“I think it’s the emotional dedication to wanting it and fighting through fatigue or drain,” she said. “It’s really hard to kind of get up emotionally three weekends in a row. And I think we did that really well and helped each other out and helped each other stay up for all three weekends.”

Klineman had 16 kills and Ross came through with 14 kills, 14 digs and three aces.

Claes, of Fullerton, powered down 23 kills and also had six digs, a block and an ace. Sponcil had six kills and nine digs.

Ross and Klineman are ranked No. 2 in the world behind Pavan and Humana-Paredes of Canada and are favored to be one of the two American teams in the Tokyo Games next year. As strong as they are, Klineman believes she and Ross still have plenty of upside.

“I’d like to think a lot,” Klineman said. “Every training block we have I feel we’re able to improve and add new things to our game.”

Ross and Klineman made it to the final with a 21-18, 21-17 semifinals victory over No. 6-seeded Kelley Kolinske/Emily Stockman. Ross had 15 kills, 12 digs and two aces in that one and Klineman had 14 kills and four blocks.

Kolinske had 10 kills and four blocks and Stockman contributed nine kills and 13 digs.

Claes and Sponcil upset No. 2-seeded Humana-Paredes/Pavan 21-16, 21-13 in the semifinals. Claes had 17 kills, nine digs and three blocks and Sponcil had 10 kills and 19 digs.

Humana-Paredes led her team with 12 kills and 14 digs.

Del Mar: Fighting Mad sprints to win in Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes

It’s not easy to impress Bob Baffert. Not with the number of equine greats the Hall of Fame trainer has housed in his barn over the years.

But Fighting Mad, a 4-year-old New Year’s Day filly, did just that Sunday at Del Mar, speeding gate to wire to win the $250,000 Grade I Clement L. Hirsch Stakes for her second consecutive graded-stakes victory and third of her career.

“Basically, she ran ’em off their feet,” Baffert said.

But he wasn’t so certain Fighting Mad was going to fire her best shot while saddling her in the paddock. She got so worked up they had to hose her down before the race.

“I was a little bit worried about her because she was getting pretty warm, really getting hot,” Baffert said. “The way she was acting in the paddock, she ran incredible … she was trembling and sweating. She really lost it in the paddock today. I was very worried about that, but that’s how good a filly she is.”

Baffert needn’t have worried.

Fighting Mad, with Abel Cedillo aboard, popped the gate, opened a quick lead and never looked back while setting quick fractions of 23.15, 46.55 and 1:10.57 as the 9-5 favorite. She held off a late-closing Ollie’s Candy by a half-length for the first Grade I victory of her career.

A winner of five of eight lifetime, Fighting Mad came into the race off a Grade II score in the Santa Maria Stakes at Santa Anita on May 31. She won the Grade III Torrey Pines Stakes last summer at Del Mar, proving she loves the ocean air. She’s three of four with a second at the track.

Ce Ce, the 2-1 second choice, finished third, 4 3/4 lengths behind Ollie’s Candy, who won the race last year. Final time for the 1 1/16 miles was 1:43.46 as Fighting Mad earned an all-expenses paid berth in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Keeneland on Nov. 7.

“I had the same instructions today that I had yesterday (for his gate-to-wire victory aboard Thousand Words for Baffert in the Shared Belief Stakes),” Cedillo said. “Get her out of there and see if you can get to the front. She really broke sharply and wanted to go right away.

“I got her to relax some on the backside, then she went right on with it. She’s just an amazing filly.”

Fighting Mad opened a 1 1/2-length lead up the backstretch and was never seriously threatened, though Ollie’s Candy was making up ground in the final sixteenth of a mile.

“Her speed is her weapon,” Baffert said. “Just let her bounce away from there. When you look at her you wouldn’t think she could go that far, but she has so much speed. When she started opening up I thought, ‘Well, he (Cedillo) must know what he’s doing.’”

The biggest disappointment of the race was Hard Not to Love, the 3-1 third choice in the wagering. She shifted in and bumped Ce Ce soon after the break, dropped back to last and stayed there the entire way, beaten about 13 lengths.

Asked after the race if he thinks Fighting Mad can successfully navigate the Breeders’ Cup Distaff’s mile and an eighth, Baffert wasn’t immediately concerned.

“You don’t worry about that,” he said. “We gotta keep ’em healthy. It’s a long ways off (to the Breeders’ Cup).”

It’s been a successful Del Mar meet through the opening 10 days for Fighting Mad’s owners, Gary and Mary West. They also own Maximum Security, who won the San Diego Handicap on July 25 in a stirring stretch duel with Midcourt and will likely run next in the $500,000 Pacific Classic on Aug. 22.

“I’m happy for the Wests,” Baffert said. “They live down here and they got to see some action finally.”

Del Mar still is not allowing spectators because of the coronavirus, but track officials relaxed their protocols beginning July 31 and are allowing a limited number of owners to attend the races. They’re not allowed in the paddock or winner’s circle, but can view the races from the second-floor grandstand and box seat area.

It’s the first time since mid-March that owners in California have been allowed to watch their horses run in person.

Rams’ Sean McVay takes on changes in team and training camp

Sometime Monday in Thousand Oaks, in a newly erected tent roomy enough to allow social distancing by 100 football players and coaches, Sean McVay will meet his 2020 Rams face to face for the first time.

After a different kind of offseason in which Zoom meetings replaced in-person strategy sessions and workouts, the Rams will open a different kind of training camp.

McVay can’t come right out and say it’s going to his most challenging camp as a head coach, and maybe it’s not. It wasn’t easy in 2017, when McVay was a 31-year-old rookie coach. That worked out all right.

“I know our players and coaches are really champing at the bit to even get in here, where we can meet with the players in person,” McVay said in a video chat with reporters Sunday from the Rams’ facility at California Lutheran University. “It’ll be newer challenges, things we’ve never navigated before.”

None of the 32 NFL coaches has ever faced a training camp as hard as this, with practice sessions limited, preseason games and inter-team scrimmages eliminated, and daily coronavirus tests reminding everybody why.

It might be harder for McVay. Nobody will have to work around those restrictions to incorporate more changes in the roster and staff than he must carry out after a 9-7, non-playoff season followed by a rough offseason.

The departed names are familiar, among them running back Todd Gurley; wide receiver Brandin Cooks; linebackers Cory Littleton, Dante Fowler and Clay Matthews; safety Eric Weddle, and kicker Greg Zuerlein.

Their potential replacements are unproven, including Darrell Henderson and top Rams draft pick Cam Akers at running back, Josh Reynolds and rookie Van Jefferson at receiver, Samson Ebukam, and free-agent signing Leonard Floyd and rookie Terrell Lewis at linebacker.

All told, the team will have at least six different starters from the 22 on the depth chart for the Rams’ last game of 2019, and at least nine changes from the 22 who began last season.

The assistant coaches helping McVay choose the starters for the Sept. 13 season opener against the Dallas Cowboys at SoFi Stadium are new, too: coordinators Kevin O’Connell on offense, Brandon Staley on defense and John Bonamego on special teams, and running backs coach Thomas Brown.

To evaluate players in game conditions without the usual four exhibitions and joint practices with other teams, McVay said Sunday he plans to hold intrasquad scrimmages at SoFi, the new Rams and Chargers home in Inglewood.

He hopes that while the lack of audition time might hinder rookies, an increase in “above the neck” coaching early in the pandemic-style training camp will help them.

“If we do it the right way,” McVay said, “it’ll give rookies actually a better opportunity to not be as stressed and overwhelmed mentally when the full-speed reps start.”

Camp will begin with a nine-day “acclimation period” of weight and on-field conditioning work, followed by a five-day “ramp-up” period of practices. Not until Aug. 18 will a 20-day period of full-contact practice begin on two fields in Thousand Oaks. (Fans won’t be allowed at training camp this year, and reporters won’t be allowed in until Aug. 18.)

The Rams begin camp with the 2020 limit of 80 players (10 fewer than usual) on the roster after undrafted rookie defensive tackle Michael Hoecht was activated Sunday from the “Reserve/COVID-19” list for players who tested positive for the coronavirus or have been quarantined because they were in contact with an infected person. The active roster must be trimmed by Sept. 5 to 53, plus a practice squad of 16 (six more than usual).

Hoecht and Lewis were put on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, the same day that offensive lineman Chandler Brewer declared he was opting out of playing this season because his 2018 battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma leaves him at risk to the virus. McVay said he didn’t expect any other players to opt out or go on the physically unable to perform list.

Once openly skeptical about holding training camps, McVay said he feels “a lot better” now because of the NFL’s agreement with the NFL Players Association to hold daily virus testing for the first two weeks.

McVay preached “responsibility” by players and other personnel, who will commute to camp from their homes, to keep the virus from entering the training-camp “ecosystem.”

“It’s not just about what you’re doing here (in camp). It’s about understanding how important the ramifications can be if you make bad decisions outside of here with who you’re exposed to,” the coach said.

But he said he won’t impose rules for players’ off-duty behavior or special treatment for indispensable players such as quarterback Jared Goff.

“What I’m still working through is that fine line of acknowledging how serious this … but also allowing(ing) us to go play football.”

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani’s outing started off so well, then it took a disappointing turn, and several hours later it got even worse.

After the Angels’ 6-5 loss to the Houston Astros in 11 innings, the team announced that Ohtani felt some discomfort in his arm after failing to get out of the second inning and had been sent for an MRI exam.

The Angels did not plan to release results of the MRI on Sunday.

Ohtani, who was making his second appearance on the mound since undergoing Tommy John surgery, had not recorded an out in his first outing last Sunday, with a fastball that averaged just 92.9 mph, compared with the 96.7 mph he threw before surgery.

This time, though, Ohtani improved to 94.4 mph, topping out at 97.1 mph, which at least temporarily allayed fears that he had anything wrong with his arm.

The problem was his control. In his second inning of work, he walked five batters and stayed on the mound for 42 pitches before Manager Joe Maddon pulled him, still with two outs.

Maddon gave no indication that Ohtani had any sort of health concerns when addressing the media.

The Angels subsequently announced that Ohtani had gone for an MRI.

The Angels had high hopes for Ohtani, 26, as a two-way player, particularly after he did well enough in both roles for the first two months of 2018 to win the Rookie of the Year Award.

Since then, though, he has not been able to continue at that level.

Ohtani had Tommy John surgery in October 2018, which limited him to spend all of 2019 as a hitter. They had planned on him starting to pitch in May 2020, just to limit his innings.

Once the pandemic pushed the start of the season back to July, the Angels expected to have Ohtani for the entire season in both roles.

However, two starts in there are now significant questions, about his performance and his health.

In Ohtani’s two outings, he has faced 16 batters and he has walked eight of them. He has been charged with seven runs and he’s completed just 1-2/3 innings.

When he didn’t have his fastball velocity in his first game, last Sunday in Oakland, Ohtani had said he felt reluctant to throw at his full velocity.

Maddon and pitching coach Mickey Callaway both said Ohtani simply needed to be confident that he was healthy. This time, he was throwing harder and the immediate results were a perfect first inning, on just eight pitches.

The second was another story.

Ohtani walked the first three hitters of the inning. After two strikeouts, he did not get an apparent third strike called on Dustin Garneau, instead walking in a run. He then walked George Springer.

Ohtani’s fastballs to Springer dropped to 89 mph. Maddon explained after the game that he thought Ohtani had just gotten fatigued from throwing 42 pitches in an inning.

While the Angels wait to see if Ohtani’s MRI is clean, Maddon said he was encouraged by some of what he saw.

“I saw some positive signs,” he said. “The velocity was much better. The slider was much better. It just seemed he tried to hit the edges too much, but he threw the ball much better.”
