    you're not familiar with the story, it must be because you didn't have internet access in 2009, when James Blagden's amazing animated short film Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No exploded across the web, turning what was a quirky footnote in baseball history into a modern-day tall tale known by fans and non-fans alike.

    Second time I've seen this on here and my opinion is still the same:

    Having done LSD a few times, I completely believe him.

    And it wasn't just a no hitter, it was a perfect game.

    Having done LSD I can imagine functioning at that high a level. Doc Ellis is something else!

    Ya know, when you get to a certain level, such as MLB, your physical ability is such that anyone likely has the talent to do great things, especially for a single game. When you strip away all the mental aspects (nerves, pressure to perform, off field baggage) and just rely on instinct, it becomes much easier.

    The first 3 yrs I was in high school, the football team sucked. The only game they won was in my sophomore year, while the QB was tripping face. He ran for a couple TDs and threw for a couple. The one TD run was like 40yds and he was bouncing around like a rat on crack.

    back in the 70's, i'm surprised every team didn't shut out the Padres.

    just like now.

    I don't think it was a perfect game. He mentions he hit a couple guys and said he got letters about the game because it was so ugly. Either way, thats a great fuckin story.

    I've tripped a couple times on LSD but, up in the hills away from people. I've eaten shrooms plenty(from my experience a heavier trip than acid) and once at a BBQ. We started a pick-up basketball game and besides the nausea, I ripped it up that day. I'm 5'7" and am normally good at the game but, that day I couldn't miss. I cut to the basket and got an inlet pass and jumped from inside the freethrow circle. I saw another defender about to leave his man and come double-team me so I intended to pass to his guy when I saw that. He didn't fully commit though, so I just kept floating towards the basket for an easy layup. I almost touched the bottom of the net after I let go of the ball. My cousin, who knew I was trippin, came over and was like "wtf dude, shrooms does that to you!?" I guess it did that day.

    Yer right it was a no hitter. I don't know why I always thought it was a perfect game. And lord only knows why perfect games have become so common.

    As an obsessive baseball fan, who regularly takes LSD, this is one of my favorite baseball stories.
