Dock Ellis and The LSD No-Hitter

baseballI Google+'d this a month ago, but it's just too awesome for Google+. Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden belongs here.

In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. In the past few years we've heard all too much about performance enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough about performance inhibiting drugs. If our evaluation of the records of athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, and Barry Bonds needs to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that that Dock Ellis record deserves a giant exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever thrown in the Big Leagues, we can only guess how many were aided by steroids, but we can say without question that only one was ever thrown on acid.

You won't find anything better on the web today.

This is just fantastic. It's like a Saturday Morning Cartoon from my youth gone just so very wrong.

And you know what? Good for them!

Spaceman Lee is another one of my favourites, and he is just as entertaining today.

I'm reading Jose Canseco's book "Juiced". Taking it with a grain of salt but an interesting read nonetheless.
