Dock Ellis LSD No-Hitter recreated on the Xbox

In den 70ern warf Baseball-Pitcher Dock Ellis auf LSD einen No-Hitter, dazu hatte ich schonmal eine Animation hier vor ein paar Jahren.

Jetzt hat Deadspins A.J. Daulerio versucht, das ganze in im Baseball-Game MLB 2K11 auf der Xbox nachzumachen, inklusive LSD-Trip natürlich. Die Kombination macht Sport sogar für mich interessant, weil für Sport interessieren sich ja normalerweise nur aber ich hör’ an dieser Stelle besser auf.

Hier nochmal die Animation von James Blagden: No Mas Presents: Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No.

I had a perfectly pleasant first LSD experience, one made only slightly less pleasant by my attempts to recreate Dock Ellis’s acid-addled June 12, 1970, no-hitter on the Xbox version of MLB2K11.

I took my first strip of the stuff (pictured below) at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon and it took about 30 minutes for the first burst of spastic wooziness to arrive. The games began, with an MLB2K11 custom-generated Dock Ellis leading the 2011 Pirates against the 2011 San Diego Padres, a considerably less fearsome offensive bunch than the woeful ’70 Pads, who at least had homer-thumping Nate Colbert in the cleanup spot. It should be noted that I’m not a very good player.
