A Perfect Game

Congrats to Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle for pitching the 18th Perfect Game in MLB history!!!

As the Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0, it was DeWayne Wise, a defensive replacement in the 9th, that saved the perfect game and the shutout by robbing Pat Burrell of a home run. And the big blast of the game was a grand slam!!! How more perfect can you get??!

All is well on the South Side of Chicago. But as a Cubs fan, let me tell all White Sox fans not to celebrate yet, as you're team is still in second place (mathematically). And the Sox have a seven game swing between Detroit and Minnesota to face.

But for one day, Chicago (both sides, and the surrounding suburbs) can celebrate perfection. And let the nationwide media blitz begin.
