Best Answer

The 1976 Winter Olympics were initially awarded to Denver, Colorado. But when voters rejected the bond proposal necessary to finance the building projects, Innsbruck, Austria (which had previously hosted in 1964) stepped in and welcomed the Games.

Was the Alamo ever moved?

Yes, it was moved twice. At the first location it was flooded and moved. A hurricane destroyed it at the second location, after that it was moved to it's current location.Edited to say:I've received complaints this explanation is biased. I'm guessing this is semantic argument -- an argument over words. I assume it refers to my failing to explain the Alamo was the Mission San Antonio de Valero. It began to be referred to as the Alamo sometime after it was moved to it's current location, so it could be said the mission has not been moved since it began being called the Alamo.
