Is perfection in his future?

  • Is perfection in his future?
"How perfect is a perfect game?" my eminent colleague Michael Miner wants to know, in the wake of the gem Phil Humber threw for the White Sox in Seattle Saturday.

Mark Buehrle's 2009 perfect game was more perfect than Humber's, because Buerhle's was at home. I was one of the million Sox fans who saw it in person, although 971,964 of us are perfect liars.

Miner wonders about the perfect crime. I'm thinking Rod Blagojevich escapes from prison, and, posing as Lisa Madigan, is elected governor again.

But generally, lower standards are a key to enjoying perfection. The perfect round of golf, Miner asks? You find more balls than you lose. The perfect bowling night? The alley has half-size shoes and the ball return is flawless.

While we loved Buehrle's and Humber's beauties, a perfect game for Sox fans is still any win over the Cubs. A perfect game for Cubs fans this season is a rainout. But wait till next year.
