In response to Tebow's tweet, Humber said Monday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000, "The funny thing about that is I tweeted him this offseason, and of course he's Tim Tebow and I'm Philip Humber ... compared to him I'm a nobody, but I didn't get a response. I was like, 'Aw man,' I was kind of hoping he'd tweet me back or something.'"

Last Saturday, Humber amazed sports fans everywhere by throwing the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history leading the White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the a Seattle Mariners.
