L of a ges­ture

Weekend Herald - - Cricket -

Ver­mont’s cap­i­tal city said merci to the French city it’s named af­ter when some mis­spelled soc­cer jerseys were sent its way. Montpellier, France, or­dered jerseys for its team and fans but the jerseys came in mis­spelled, with just one L in­stead of two. The city in south­ern France de­cided to send the jerseys to Montpelier, Ver­mont, which is spelled with one L, not two. Montpelier Mayor John Hol­lar thanked Montpellier Mayor Philippe Sau­rel. The jerseys will be auc­tioned off to ben­e­fit the ath­letic depart­ment and other char­i­ties.
