There are two ways to comprehend how fantastic Clayton Kershaw was during his Wednesday night no-hitter against the Colorado Rockies. You can read all the facts and stats. Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown did a fine job of putting Kershaw's performance in historical perspective, so don't miss that.

The other way: You can gawk at Kershaw's stuff. It was nasty. The way his curveball was breaking was borderline unfair. That's why they call it Public Enemy No. 1.

Since the Internet loves this kind of thing, Yahoo Sports' GIF maestro Eric Orvieto was kind enough to create one GIF that shows Kershaw's arsenal and just how nasty it was. It features seven of Kershaw's best pitches overlayed in one glorious moving image. (As seen on the Yahoo Sports and Big League Stew Tumblrs, by the way).

Watch it again and again, nod in approval and be thankful it wasn't you up there at the plate looking silly as Kershaw etched his name in the history book.
