    Still a great story though.

     

    "I remember hitting a couple of batters, and the bases were loaded two or three times. The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn't. Sometimes, I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder. 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. They say I had about three to four fielding chances. I remember diving out of the way of a ball I thought was a line drive. I jumped, but the ball wasn't hit hard and never reached me."

     

    I recommend watching the film No No: a Dockumentary. I believe it's on Netflix. Dock Ellis certainly was a character. Professional sports doesn't have guys like that anymore - guys who are unique characters on their own - only bland automatons.

    I watched that one! Fantastic bioflick

    I've known some very intellegent people that had trouble making a cup of coffee, depends where your mind is.

    But suck at chess? No, but matter of defintion what "sucks" means. If they study/pratice will be good enough to beat most folks at the local pub.

    Lord yes. A dude I know, my cousin's boyfriend, dude's intelligent as hell. He's a chemist, one of the smartest guys I've ever known. But when it comes to mundane, everyday stuff you'd wonder how on Earth this guy manages to function as an adult.

    Every dead body I have seen could be safely characterized as "sucking at chess".
