Perfect: Mark Buehrle, White Sox take over Twitter

Did you see Mark Buehrle, #whitesox and Chicago White Sox jump up the Twitter trends today?

Unless you live in a cave, you'll know exactly why that happened, too. Mark Buehrle threw a perfect game, the second in Sox history and 18th in Major League Baseball history.

The real-time social networking site was filled with thoughts, reactions, links, and comments on the feat.

Some were actually at U.S. Cellular Field for the moment.

Funny--in the first batch of tweets, everyone gave different numbers for the perfect game. Is the 16th, 17th or 18th?

Saw a clip of Obama talking about the game. Pretty funny. Love this side of him.

I found that funny too. It should be 18. Sixteen in the modern baseball era and two before then, but 18 officially in the MLB record books.

Love that side of Obama too. Thanks for the comment, Shari.
