As I mentioned last night on Twitter, today is Phillip Humber day at The Golden Sombrero. As a baseball fan, a perfect game is worth celebrating, regardless if it comes at the expense of your favorite team. Well, as a White Sox fan, great moments have been few and far between since Mark Buehrle’s perfecto in 2009.
On Saturday evening, all of the team’s struggles were forgotten when Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in baseball history. Living on the East coast, I was blacked out from watching due to the Yankees-Red Sox nationally televised game. However, that didn’t stop me from listening to the White Sox radio feed in my car, which, while not nearly as exciting as watching it unfold live, was still pretty damn amazing.
Do you have a story about Humber’s perfect game? Where were you? What were you doing? Are you still struggling to process that Humber (of all people) accomplished the extremely rare feat? Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter (@GoldenSombrero) and share thoughts, videos, or graphics, and I’ll do my best to include it as part of Phil Humber day.
