 TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    The Colorado Rockies, which managed to misspell the name of their All-Star shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki, during a T-shirt giveaway honoring him.
    The team gave out 15,000 of the shirts to fans attending a home game over the weekend. However, they were all spelled "Tulowizki" instead of Tulowitzki.
    The error has a silver lining though, some of the jerseys with the misspelled name were being sold on eBay for as much as $300. By comparison, Tulowitzki shirts with the correct spelling can be purchased on the site for as little as $11.99.



AND THEN THERE'S .....

OR HOW ABOUT .....

    Lynette Rae Sampson, 54, who was arrested after calling police to complain about the purity of her methamphetamine. Sampson told the dispatcher she thought her "ice" was laced with something. When an officer arrived to check it out, she reportedly said, "I'm glad you came." Sampson showed the officer multiple areas where she had meth stashed. She also admitted to using the drug and was "hearing things and sweating profusely." She's now facing felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
