The Colorado Mammoth is a member of the National Lacrosse League, a professional sports league in North America. They have played at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, since the 2002-2003 season. In 2004 they became the league's attendance leader, beating the Toronto Rock out closely. In 2006, they again came away with the league attendance record, beating out rivals Calgary. In 20 years, 2006 was the first year that the league had an attendance of one million fans in one season. The Colorado Mammoth had the honor of hosting fan number one million, an honor that commissioner Jim Jennings believes to be rightfully theirs, given the impact they had on the league's attendance this year.

Colorado - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2378 words)
Colorado is one of only three states (the others are Wyoming and Utah) that have only lines of latitude and longitude for borders.
The northwestern corner of Colorado bordering Northern Utah and Western Wyoming is mostly sparsely populated rangeland.
Colorado is made up primarily of transplanted citizens, and this is illustrated by the fact that the state has not had a native-born governor since 1975 (when John David Vanderhoof left office) and has not elected one since 1958, in the person of Stephen L.R. McNichols.
