Perfect options

Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle just threw the 16th perfect game in major league history, which would be awesome if it didn't come against my fantasy team. (Screw you, Stanicek!).

What was perhaps even more interesting was following Buehrle's Wikipedia page in the minutes leading up to the final out.

After one out in the ninth, this showed up: "On July 23, 2009, Beuhrle threw a Perfect Game against the Tampa Bay Rays." A little premature, a little misspelled.

I think the real in-depth dissection of the day happened only a few minutes later.

In [[2005 in
[1]. Buehrle finished the 2006 season 12-13 with a 4.99 ERA, his first losing season in seven major league seasons.

And below:

On July 23, 2009 Buehrle threw his 2nd no hitter which was a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was pretty kickass if you ask me.
I love Wikipedia, even though some blowhard has probably corrected those literary bon mots by the time you read this. Hoser.
