What's better than watching the Boston Red Sox slowly blow a 9-0 lead* to the New York Yankees on a Saturday afternoon? 

Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox pitching the 21st perfect game in major league history -that's what.

Here are the fun facts rolling off twitter following Humber's perfect gem.

Phil Humber makes #WhiteSox history tossing a perfect game today.It is the 21st perfect game in MLB history.

And @Philip_Humber is perfect. 27 up, 27 down. But that last swing call by Brian Runge is going to be debated.

Humber's perfect game was the third tossed by a #WhiteSox pitcher (also Mark Buehrle on 7/23/2009 and Charlie Robertson on 4/30/1922)

Humber threw just 96 pitches in today's perfect game, including 67 strikes. #WhiteSox

Dear Red Sox, all I did was get up to make a sandwich.What the **** just happened?Josh

Great.Because of Phil Humber's #perfectgame, the no hitter I threw in my 7 year old's "coaches pitch" game now seems pretty weak.

I'm with Giants Nirvana - HAHA, Holy ****, WOW.

Congrats Phil Humber.

Until Next Time,

*The Yankees have cut the Red Sox 9-0 lead to 9-8 at time of publishing.  Bobby Valentine has got to be freaking the f-bomb out.
