I'd Like to Buy a Beer For...
I have never kept it a secret that I don't like Mark Buehrle very much. He just seems cocky and arrogant -- and he says bad things about the Twins. Besides, he plays for a division rival and helps them win.
However, there are times when a player does something so rare and special, so spectacularly awesome, so wonderfully good, so perfect, that all the ill-will in the world just can't stand up to it.
Mark Buehrle did that today. He achieved the most difficult and amazing of all sporting feats. He pitched a perfect game.
So, Mark, just for today, you made me very happy. And I am very happy for you.
Oh, since I'm such a good mood, I'll buy a beer for DeWayne Wise for that homerun-stealing, game-saving catch in the 9th.
