Die Some Eggs. Drop Some Acid.

An amazing accomplishment happened on June 12, 1970 when Dock Ellis pitched a no hitter on acid. Get a look at this terrific cartoon with an actual interview of Dock.

Also, have a look at Robin Williams describing just why it's really not easy to do much of anything on acid, let alone pitch nine no-hit innings. Whether you like Robin or not, he is the perfect comedian to explain the importance of this accomplishment.

Dock Ellis spent a lot of his life drinking and doing drugs, then he became a drug counselor after becoming sober, but unfortunately, in 2008 he died of cirrhosis of the liver.

To Doc and Jesus.

Pour out a little liquor for Dock.

I think it's sad and morally wrong to compare Jesus dying on the cross to some guy on acid pitching a no a believer it's extremely offensive. However, your blog- your opinions. I just thought I'd share mine.

Robin Williams still has his moments...although they're fewer & further between.

It is still hard to imagine that he was able to do that while high on acid but I give him the benefit of the doubt. I couldn't do much on acid but stare at stuff so I probably would not be that effective on the mound. Hope you had a good Easter weekend, and thanks for reminding of doucher from "Step Brothers." I think I can say it about 5 more times before the wife bans the word.

Jov: I really liked that Robin Williams bit. I was surprised how damn funny it was.

Sal: I'm on my way to check that shit out . . .

Heff: His best moments were on coke 20 years ago.

Shife: I'd pay to see you on the mound staring at stuff, and I'm so glad you're getting good use out of "doucher." Say it a few dozen more times before the wife puts the kibosh on it.
