Buehrle shutout by Blagojevich

Buehrle shutout by Blagojevich

UPDATE:Asked in an email about the Buehrle oversight, a Blagojevich spokesman said the governor sent Buehrle a personal letter and proclaimed White Sox day after the World Series.

I'm sure that'll satisfy Sox fans' notion of fairness
*****************************************

A dailyherald.com reader going by SoxFan83 asked a very good question this morning.

“So when was Buehrle day last April?”

On Sunday, Cubs’ ace Carlos Zambrano threw a no-hitter and Gov. Rod Blagojevich responded by declaring Tuesday “Carlos Zambrano Day” in Illinois.

Last year, Mark Buehrle tossed a no-hitter for the White Sox.
The response from the administration?

(cue the chirping crickets)

Looks like Blagojevich threw a shutout right back at Buehrle.
I searched via Google and Yahoo, then went to the state Web site and searched all the governor’s news releases.

Nothing.

In case you hadn’t figured it out, the governor is a Cubs fan.
