Simply Perfect

Mark Buehrle of my beloved White Sox pitched a perfect game today.

As the Trib reports, “Buehrle retired all 27 Tampa Bay batters to complete a 5-0 perfect game, the second in White Sox history.”

Check out this video of the nerve-wracking ninth inning, when center fielder Dewayne Wise made an amazing catch, depriving Tampa Bay a home run and preserving the no-hitter.

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen slipped Wise into the field at the top of the ninth. Guillen can be such a genius sometimes.

Maybe Obama, a fellow Sox fan, should ask Guillen to get health care reform through Congress. Leaving it in the hands of Cubs fans Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod is just asking for failure. Everyone knows the Cubs choke in September.
