"The Colorado Rockies gave away 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki jerseys to fans at the team`s game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Unfortunately, in true Rockies fashion, Tulo`s name was misspelled on every single one of them.
The jerseys left out the second T, making the club`s star player`s name "Tulowizki.` "
Granted, Tulowitzki is a very difficult name to spell correctly, but you`d think the Rockies organization would double-check and triple check the spelling before accepting delivery of the jerseys from the manufacturer.
Tulowitzki is better known by his nickname "Tulo", that`s the name they should have emblazoned on the damn jerseys.
As high as everyone is in the Mile High City, I`m surprised anyone noticed the typo.
The Rockies organization released a statement promising to reproduce the jersey (with Tulo`s name spelled correctly) and fans wishing to exchange will be able to do so. In addition, folks exchanging the jersey will receive a complimentary ticket to a future game.
Not a bad attempt to appease the fans, but I suspect the Mile High fans won`t be satisfied until they receive a new jersey, a complimentary ticket and a free joint.
