The numbers game


mr_ed:  Claire, on a dial-up connection that's vastly too slow even by late-20th-Century standards, found another view of NCAR. A variation on the style in the other photo.

Last hour's trivia answers:  Yup. Naropa, the Buddhist university. In Boulder, of course. Lived next to it for a while.

In their 17th year (1976), the Denver Broncos hit stride and finished the regular season 9-5. They started having very few seasons where they finished .500 or below.

This hour's trivia question:  Okay, so Leadville has the highest public airport in North America. But commercial flights don't go there. So where is the highest commercial airport in North America?

The Broncos started out with a perfect 1.000 record. Then they lost their 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 8th games and were down to .500. And then they lost the 9th and 10th as well. Tied the 11th. Lost the 12th through 14th.

For Broncologists only - when did the Broncos manage to bring their overall regular-season average back up to at least .500? Where they had won as many (or more) games than they had lost over time?

Next hour's trivia category:  I think I'll surprise myself. ;-)

Way to go Holly for that last trivia question!

My guess for this one is Telluride Regional Airport?

Hugs,
