SEATTLE White Sox right-hander Philip Humber made sure to relish every moment commemorating Saturday's perfect game with his teammates.
That included spending Saturday night at a sports bar with about a dozen teammates to watch a UFC fight (even though Humber isn't a fight fan) to taping a "Top 10" segment for Monday's showing of "The Late Show with David Letterman.".
"You only get one chance to re-live it," Humber said Sunday morning.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and former Sox ace Mark Buehrle were among more than 100 people who sent congratulatory messages to Humber. As of late Sunday morning, he had yet to hear from the White Sox's No. 1 fan President Barack Obama.
"I don't know if he knows I'm a registered Republican or what," Humber joked.

Humber along with several members of the White Sox Team and Staff are Christians and Conservative. I've been a Season Ticket Holder for 20 years and so proud that we don't have premadonnas like Ozzie Guillen anymore.
When Phil Humber was interviewed on the radio he gave thanks to God, talked about his Faith, how his teammates share his Faith. Guys is an all around good guy.
For once I have to give credit to Rahm Emanuel for calling Humber immediately. Too bad his boss in DC doesn't have any dignity!
Why am I posting this?
Because Mark Buehrle threw a perfect game July 23, 2009 for the White Sox and Obama called him during Mark's post game press conference.
After Phil Humber's perfecto, Mayor Rahm Emanuel called and as quoted by Humber was excited. So for the first time in my life I'm going to give kudos to Rahm.
Barack Obama makes Rahm Emanuel look like a right wing conservative!!!
Such typical trash from the media. Obama has no dignity.
Muzzies know something about dignity?
That’s why Rahm isn’t working at the White House any more. He was capable of calling a conservative to congratulate him. That sort of stuff isn’t permitted by Michelle and Valerie.
He won’t congratulate a cracker......
Someone needs to explain to Obama what a “perfect game” is. They probably didn’t play a lot of baseball in Indonesia when he was growing up.
God bless him and to He// with the Marxist.
His call would likely jinx the GOOD Christian conservative.
Obama to (announcer Rob) Dibble on why he wore a White Sox hat to throw out the first pitch in Washington: Im a Southside kid, I gotta make sure (White Sox owner) Jerry Reinsdorf doesnt get to angry with me.
Dibble: Having played with the White Sox for a short time, I know how the Cubs fans and White Sox fans go back and forth. Who was one of your favorite White Sox players growing up?
Obama: You know uh
I thought that
. you know
the truth is a lot of the Cubs I like too! But, uh
I did not become a Sox fan until I moved to Chicago. Because I uh
. I was growing up in Hawaii so I ended up actually being an Oakland As fan.
Even then people booed him, he threw worse than John Kerry.
That was in ComiNskey Park, right?
Obama’s affirmative action White House staff serves him soooooo well.
Born in Hawaii? Maybe.
An actual America? NOPE.
He’s as un-American as a bipedal, carbon-based lifeform can be. No surprise to some of us.
If Fidel Castro was president, even he would have called Phil Humber. But to the dog-eater, Soetoro.
Congrats to you, Phil!
Humber is a Republican? I didn’t know, I’m glad.
