Jim Joyce gives us another reason to like baseball

After the blown call heard round the world, I realized that the "perfection" we witnessed the other night had nothing to do with 27 outs.  It had everything to do with perfect sportsmanship. There was no tantrum from Armando Galarraga.  There were no boos from the crowd.  No need for a police escort for this official who made a mistake and owned up to it minutes later.  Sometimes professional athletes are just... well... professional.  It makes me proud to be a baseball fan.  Proud to be a Tigers fan.  And proud to be from Detroit.  A free press article summed up Jim Joyce's story very well here...
