Mis­spelled Mont­pe­lier jer­seys go­ing to Ver­mont

Medicine Hat News - - LIFESTYLES -

MONT­PE­LIER, Vt. Ver­mont’s cap­i­tal city is say­ing merci to France for a spell­ing er­ror on some soc­cer jer­seys.

The city man­ager in Mont­pe­lier, Ver­mont, says Mont­pel­lier, France, or­dered jer­seys for its pro­fes­sional soc­cer team and fans, but they came in mis­spelled, with just one L in­stead of two.

City man­ager Bill Fraser says the French city has de­cided to send them to Mont­pe­lier, Ver­mont, which is spelled with one L, not two.

Fraser said Thurs­day that the jer­seys will go to the Mont­pe­lier High School soc­cer teams and pos­si­bly sold in the com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit the high school boost­ers.

He says Mont­pe­lier first learned of the jer­seys through a tweet and then was con­tacted by the French city.
