    Today's Trivia Question:


    From 1998 to 2006, the Denver Broncos had eight seasons with a running back rushing for over 1,000 yards. Those eight thousand yard seasons were accomplished by six different running backs, Who were they?


    2001 was rushing by committee? Nobody had 1,000 or more. The rest are:

    1998 - TD
    1999 - Olandis Gary
    2000, 2005 - Mike Anderson
    2001 - TD (701 yards), Mike Anderson (678 yards), Olandis Gary (228)
    2002, 2003 - Clinton Portis
    2004 - Reuben Droughns
    2006 - Tatum Bell

        I guess I should have worded it a little different. No matter how you slice it up you come up with the same 6 running backs.

          I checked three different holiday calendars and none of them list this holiday. I was able to confirm however it is Norway's Constitution Day.

            She said it was the day Norway celebrates it's independence from Swedish rule (Syttende = 17, Mai = May) but as you noted it's technically the day they signed their constitution. Though she's a long suffering Browns fan, she'll be glad to know that Bronco Country is officially celebrating her holiday

                              • Steve Foley intercepted 44 passes in 150 games of an eleven year career in Denver.

                                Austin "Goose" Gonsoulin intercepted 43 passes in 94 games of a seven year career in Denver.

                                Billy Thompson is next with 40 picks.

                                There were fourteen game seasons through 1977, I believe.
