(CBS/WBAY) - That now infamous and controversial touchdown call on Monday night spurred two Wisconsin friends to make their displeasure known on a T-shirt.  The disputed call in question gave the Seattle Seahawks a 14-12 victory over the Green Bay Packers angering packer fans and apparently causing an upset among gamblers in Las Vegas.

The pair, who own a T-shirt business, began making handmade T-shirts that read "worst call ever" within an hour of the game ending.  In an effort to settle the score, the pair are selling the T-shirts for $12.07, which is what they believe is the true score of the game.  The pair have been taking in orders from as far as California.

(CNN) - Americans apparently aren't too scared to spend money on Halloween this year.  According to the National Retail Federation, seven in 10 Americans are expected to spend big next month.  That's a ten year high.  Consumers are expected to shell out more money on costumes, decorations and candy this year, driving total Halloween sales to $8-billion dollars.

(CNN) - It's not Harry Potter, but the new book by author J.K. Rowling goes on sale today.  Not only is it her first full-length work since the final Harry Potter book came out five years ago, it's also her first book for adults. Called, A Casual Vacancy, the novel concerns the death of a local-government official and includes references to drugs and sex.  It's receiving mixed reviews from critics.

(CNN) - It's something you don't catch a glimpse of very often. A helicopter camera spots a white humpback whale in the waters near Brisbane, Australia.  It's believed to be Migaloo, an elusive, yet quite famous, albino whale.  People on a whale-watching tour said seeing the creature was amazing.  One person said it looked like an iceberg coming out of the waves.

If this is Migaloo, Wednesday's sighting would be the third of the year.  He was first spotted 21 years ago and until last year, was the only documented all-white whale in the world.
