Not To Take Anything Away From That Mother’s Day Perfect Game, But Did He Do It On LSD? Didn’t Think So

As you know, yesterday Oakland Athletics pitcher Dallas Braden pitched a perfect game. That means 27 batters, 27 outs. Only 109 pitches. Pretty sick stuff.

But color me unimpressed.

Okay, okay, I’m just kidding. It’s ridiculously impressive. But Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter one time. And while I understand that that – while just as neat – isn’t as impressive as a perfect game it’s still awesome when you consider that he did it on LSD.

Allow me to repeat myself: Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter whilst high on LSD.

This video is dubbed over Ellis’ recollection of the events. It’s uh…well, it’s as awesome as a guy throwing a no-hitter while high on LSD can be. Which, as you guessed, is pretty awesome.
