          How good are you at remembering years?

          What year did the Oklahoma City bombing take place? When did man first walk on the moon? When did O-U Stadium open? Here’s one more, one that some 30 percent of respondents in a recent survey couldn’t get: What year did the 9/11 terrorist attacks take place?
