France Is Sending Their Misspelled Soccer Jerseys To Vermont
Montpellier [PR: mahnt-PEEL’-yuhr], France is finding the silver lining of their shipping delivery mistake. Officials ordered jerseys for their sports teams and realized their city name had been spelled wrong, with just one "L" instead of two. As it turns out, that's how Montpelier [PR: mahn-peel’-YAY’], Vermont spells their name.
The French city reached out to the Vermont city this week, but didn't specify how many jerseys will be sent. The plan as of now is to give the jerseys out to the high school soccer teams for a game or two and then possibly sold in the community to benefit high school boosters.
“We have nice things for our students here but certainly not the level of professional jerseys,” Matt Link, the athletic director for the Vermont city's high school, says. “I’m sure the kids will just be ecstatic."

Crayola Unveils New Crayon 'Bluetiful'
Just in time for the holidays, Crayola's new blue crayon has a name. The company today announced Bluetiful beat four other finalists in an online contest that began with more than 90-thousand submissions.
Bluetiful replaces a shade of yellow called Dandelion that the company retired earlier this year. Crayola says Oregon State University scientists discovered a pigment YinMn that inspired the new blue hue. The company says we can look forward to the new crayon in time for the holidays.
Not everyone’s thrilled, however. One Facebook user took the company to task for the decision. “I’m not understanding why you are going to replace one of the only shades of yellow for another shade of blue,” writes Natasha Mills. “We already have lots of blues. I want my dandelion. I used it a lot.”
