Even without Elway, there were plenty of glorious memories coming out of Mile High Stadium. And for those who wanted to bask in a sure thing -- the glow of past glories -- Denver provided one last chance. After all, many Broncos boosters were never able to afford tickets to games at Mile High, and few of those who could ever got the chance to visit any part of the stadium other than their seats, the concession stands and the long bathroom lines. So let us now praise the city's decision to open the Denver-owned facility to free farewell tours through the first two months of 2001, thereby giving locals of every economic level the chance to check out the locker rooms, luxury boxes and even the field itself before they're reduced to dust.

The University of Denver Pioneers had a mediocre season, but sophomore goaltender Wade Dubielewicz is widely regarded as a potential All-American. In his first 27 games this year, he gave up just 2.19 goals per game -- sixth in the nation and first among goalies in the tough Western Collegiate Hockey Association. The Invermere, British Columbia, native is just 5'10" and 178 pounds, but his incredible quickness and great glove hand make him impenetrable. If the moneybags of the NHL don't come calling too soon, he might lead the Pioneers back to the heights.

Since late last year, a portion of the world's largest collection of dinosaur tracks has been housed in a church basement. University of Colorado paleontologist Martin Lockley spenty twenty years making molds of dinosaur tracks from around the world; today the collection spans more than 300 million years. In addition to big, big footprints, the small, below-ground museum also features an interactive computer display and re-creations of a foot skeleton and the skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex; other items from Lockley's print collection are housed upstairs in St. Cajetan's as well as in rooms across campus.

After being convicted of conspiracy in the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams, former University of Colorado and Carolina Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth went on television to tell his side of the story -- which included the claim that he was barely acquainted with the victim, apart from their encounters in the bedroom. Said Carruth: "I didn't even know her last name until we went to Lamaze class."

Nestled deep in the San Juan National Forest, at the base of Wolf Creek Pass, the Bruce Spruce Ranch can hold 75 of your nearest and dearest in search of an active outdoor adventure.
