It is with a heavy, rainbow-colored, scaly, butterfly-shaped heart that the FlyMaster must report the death of Dr. Albert Hoffman. Hoffman, better known as the inventor of LSD, or Acid as you may have, passed away in Switzerland at the age of 102. What, you ask, does this have to do with sports? A fine query. One that merits answers. Dr. Hoffman's mind-altering hallucinogen is the sole inspiration for the leisure sports of frisbee, hacky sack, competitive whirling in circles, marathon dancing to the Grateful Dead and Phish, long winded poetry delivered while sprinting naked through the hallways of your mother's house, and fearful stalking of your own restroom because the Lord and Savior appear in the crevaces of a dirty towel lying strewn about the floor. Dr. Hoffman's gifts to the world's consciousness and hippie sports cannot be underestimated.
