Default Troy Tulowitzki, Tulowizki, Tulowhat?

The Colorado Rockies gave away 15,000 misspelled jerseys tonight.

Waiting to see who gets fired on Monday morning...

Speaking as someone of Polish descent, this is just par for the course...

75% Polish, and for the life of me I could not spell AJ's name until he joined the Sox. I still can't spell the name of the trash-talking mother****er who played 1B for the Twins when AJ was their catcher.

They're trying to turn it into a positive by giving away some free tickets with it. This could turn out to be better for them by generating some media attention and getting more people out to games. I'm sure the tickets they're giving away wouldn't normally be sold, so perhaps they'll generate more concession revenue off of it. I doubt they'll be submitting an errors and omissions claim; although, who knows if it was actually submitted from or just produced wrong by the promotions company.

In keeping up w/the misspelled Polish names, and since this is a Sox board...

I don't think giving away t-shirts with someone's name misspelled is funny. I know he's Polish and his name is difficult to spell but misspelling someone's name isn't funny. It's not offensive, it's just not funny.
