This is just complete brilliance from No Mas: the animated story of Dock Ellis’ 1970 LSD-enhanced no-hitter. Watch it. Love it. But don’t live it, because if there’s anything that will add stress to your day, it is being on multiple hits of acid and benzedrine at work.â†µ
If there is one quibble to the piece, it is the omission of this detail from Dock’s account of the day’s events.â†µ
I started having a crazy idea in the fourth inning that Richard Nixon was the home plate umpire, and once I thought I was pitching a baseball to Jimi Hendrix, who to me was holding a guitar and swinging it over the plate.â†µ
Other than that oversight, yes: absolute perfection.
