Mark Buehrle Throws A Perfect Game (UPDATED)

There have been 15 no-hitters perfect games (see what happens when you try to get something posted quickly?) tossed in Major League Baseball since 1900. Make that 16, because the Chicago White Sox' Mark Buehrle just went perfect against the Tampa Bay Rays. 27 up, 27 down.

He can thank DeWayne Wise, who made what can only be described as an absolutely amazing catch for the first out of the 9th inning.

UPDATE: Here's the catch everyone's talking about.
