Yes, the big James Comey interview in on right now, but why watch that when New York Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon was throwing a perfect game through 6 innings?
If Bartolo Colon somehow goes 27 up, 27 down against this Astros lineup, that might qualify as the greatest pitching performance in MLB history.

I realize the Comey interview is on soon, but Bartolo Colon has a perfect game going to the 7th. Yes, Bartolo Colon.

We have a helluva Sunday night in the making. James Comey is about to talk on ABC. Cardi B is about to kill Coachella. And Bartolo Colon, at the age of 44, has a perfect game through six innings against the reigning World Series champions.

If you're not pulling for Bartolo Colon, you don't understand baseball and you don't like sport.

Bartolo Colon > James Comey interview

I take this Bartolo Colon game over James Comey’s book tour every day of the week. #LGM

I always knew that Bartolo Colon would overshadow James Comey tonight

ABC should’ve known better than doing the Comey interview during a Bartolo Colon start.

BARTOLO COLON is perfect through six. I will easily watch this over Comey if it goes past 10pm.

And we do mean “was” throwing a perfect game:
Josh Reddick follows the Correa walk with a double down the line. Bartolo Colon loses the perfect game & no-hitter and now is danger of losing the game. Still, not bad for a 44 year-old with that physique. #Rangers

Double by Josh Reddick to break up the Bartolo Colon no-hitter. Runners on second and third with nobody out in the eighth. @#Astros

You all jinxed it:
Everyone who switched to the Comey interview doomed Bartolo
