Mark Buehrle Perfect Game

in Fun

My department at work had a half-day off-site networking event, as did other departments within my company ( We went to a Chicago White Sox game as a group, numbering in the hundreds. Little did we know it would be the 18th perfect game in the history of baseball!

View from the cheap seats

Our seats were upper-deck, between third and home. Besides tickets to the game, we also got $20 in “Comiskey Cash” or whatever it’s called nowadays; basically money to spend in the stadium. Besides beer, I knew exactly what I wanted.

Not a ballgame without these

What we noticed was that this game was flying by. We knew Buehrle didn’t waste any time, but I mean it was flying! If I remember correctly, the total game time was only 2:03, which is ridiculous.

The Cell - Chicago

Fast-forward to the ninth. The whole stadium is on its feet when Dewayne Wise caught that fly ball, that place absolutely erupted. I’ve never heard a cheer that loud in my life; what a moment!

Here’s a shot as the team surrounded Mark:

And finally here’s my favorite picture, as we were headed for the Red Line.

Leaving the Chicago White Sox Perfect Game

A game and an experience I’ll never forget. For the record, I kept my ticket stub; I may even get it framed.
