The Colorado Rockies misspelled shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's last name in a promotional t-shirt giveaway, spelling it “Tulowizki.” So, yes, they left the “t” out of the t-shirt.

The Rockies will exchange the shirts at a future date and give fans tickets to a 2014 or 2015 game. Haven't those fans been punished enough without forcing them to watch more Rockies game?

Oh, they're paying me for this?

Carmelo Anthony said his decision to return to the New York Knicks was not about the money. “I want to win. I don't care about the money,” he said. Sources close to the team say Anthony will go ahead and make the Knicks happy by taking that $124 million anyway.

Raiders of the lost mojo

Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Antonio Smith said quarterback Matt Schaub is “getting his mojo back” during training camp after a disastrous final season in Houston. As long as he faces the Oakland defense all year, Schaub will keep that mojo, too.

There's homework?

The University of North Carolina has started a program that will allow former scholarship athletes who left the school early to return and complete their degrees. How many return depends on their willingness to go to class and take their own tests.

Game of inches...or feet

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel had to change his shoes at practice the other day, after being instructed to switch from bright yellow Nikes to an orange shoe in the team's colors. So that answers the question: What are the trendy colors being worn by backup quarterbacks this season?

Banned from the band

Did you see where Ohio State fired its band director for a “sexualized” environment? One of the charges is that he sometimes required band members to practice in their underwear. Maybe he was trying to perfect the “Stripped Ohio” formation for the halftime show.
