Doc Ellis - March 11, 1945 – December 19, 2008

Heard the sad news from GoJaysGo.

I don't care that it's shallow of me to be bemused by feats accomplished under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Pitching a no-hitter whilst tripping out, ladies and gentlemen, is epic.

Here is an interesting post from a blog called ath1337 about Ellis and a few other happyjuice heroes:

Bye, Again...

For what it's worth,
it was worth all the while.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

I hate Green Day, but that song popped into my head upon hearing the news. All the best to you, dude.

Now, for his apparent outgoing nature and sense of humour, I nominate Mr Barajas as the Jays' new Director of Shaving Cream Pies.
