Wake-Up Call: Denver's Y2K flop
On the Latest Word, we've been counting down some of Denver's best moments over the past decade. But this city did not start 2000 with a bang. In fact, while the rest of the world threw a huge party to welcome the millennium, Denver officials -- with visions of Y2K disasters dancing in their heads -- locked this town down tight. All the fun drained out of the city on December 31, 1999-- just like those emergency bathtub water supplies we were told to store in case of trouble.
It was Denver's first big flop of the decade, and it would not be the last. Have a favorite flub or flop from the past ten years? Post it below, and we might add it to the list of the Ten Top Flops we'll unveil before the year ends.
