Color us impressed by the athleticism of Ace, an Australian shepherd and Frisbee dog extraordinaire.
Fun fact: "disc dogs" entered the public consciousness here at our very own Dodger Stadium -- with Joe Garagiola calling the plays. Los Angeles Almanac tells the story:
Aug. 5, 1974: At the top of the ninth inning in the Dodger-Reds game, 19-year-old Alex Stein and his tiny Whippet, Ashley, dash onto the field and begin performing spectacular Frisbee tosses. The crowd is delighted and the two, caught on television cameras, initiate a Frisbee craze. Stein is arrested upon leaving the field. He had smuggled his dog into the stadium.
