Probably doesn't belong in orioles talk but really don't know where else to put it.

With us playing the Pirates and Matt Cain pitching a perfect game, it seemed fitting enough.

Wish I knew how to embed videos on this site, but either way this is a must watch.

The following season, future Oriole Reggie Jackson hit the most mammoth home run in All-Star Game history off of Doc Ellis in the 3rd inning at Tiger Stadium. The shot hit the transformer on top of the roof of Tiger Stadium. Ellis later stated that he was under the influence in that game as well, saying, "I had no business being out there."

That is just very bad. What some will put in their bodies. Just sad.

DirecTV is blacking out the MASN broadcasts of the Pirate games in this area, so I have to watch the Pirate broadcasts.

Last night there was a "remember" snippet about Doc Ellis and his career. There was no mention of the 'LSD' no-hitter or the Jackson homerun.

I wonder if there was a coincidence that Ellis was remembered on the anniversary of that no-hitter.

Thanks for the link--the piece was hilarious and very well done. I love the comment from fulltimeweirdos:

Can we please not have this thread devolve into another stupid fight about the appropriateness of using recreational drugs. There was already a thread for that.

I don't know why people are inclined to speak generally, or throw in things like "I know a guy." I pointed out that it's probably inappropriate to call Doc's story "awesome" given how it eventually ended. Anecdotal opinions about random others/situations are irrelevant.

Personally, I think he's full of it. Anybody who's ever taken acid knows a couple of things about it: It does not last for more than maybe 10 hrs, max, and you can't take more LSD to resume tripping. It doesn't work like that. The idea that he took it and over 24 hrs later was still tripping, because he'd taken more of it the next morning, doesn't really add up.

"What some will put in their bodies" - You made it about other people ;)

Pretty sure I didn't say "some." I was responding to whether "awesome" should have been applied to this particular discussion.

(i.e., if I'd wanted to get into a broader discussion, I would've quoted/agreed with the "[w]hat some will put in their bodies" comment)
