This awesome animated short by James Blagden and presented by No Mas, which tells the story (in Ellis’ own words) of the time Dock Ellis famously pitched a no-hitter game under the influence of acid, has three different connections to The Back Row! I first saw this short right after the site was founded in 2010 at the Fantasia Film Festival with Tom Lando. Then, just last week, I was listening to Greg Proops’ hilarious podcast The Smartest Man In The World and Greg recounted the same story and even mentioned this short film. And then, we at Shouts From the Back Row decided to talk about sports movies on this week’s podcast. In other words, this short was going to get posted no matter what, but there probably won’t be a more appropriate day than today. Enjoy!
