Countdown to 2012 – December 17th

On This Day in History…

December 17th to be exact

1933 – The NFL starts official stats as the Bears beat the Giants
23-21 in the championship game.

1959 – 1st movie opening simultaneously in major cites
(On The Beach).

Question of the Day:

Who made the first heavier-than-air flight at Kitty Hawk,
North Carolina, on December 17, 1903?

If you said Orville Wright, then give yourself a pat on the back. Check tomorrow for another day in our New Year’s countdown.
