Newsweek did a piece on this story that gets started this way:
In the rugged Colorado Desert of California, there lies buried a treasure ship sailed there hundreds of years ago by either Viking or Spanish explorers. Some say this is legend; others insist it is fact. A few have even claimed to have seen the ship, its wooden remains poking through the sand like the skeleton of a prehistoric beast.
Among those who say they’ve come close to the ship is small-town librarian Myrtle Botts. In 1933, she was hiking with her husband in the Anza-Borrego Desert, not far from the border with Mexico. It was early March, so the desert would have been in bloom, its washed-out yellows and grays beaten back by the riotous invasion of wildflowers. Those wildflowers were what brought the Bottses to the desert, and they ended up near a tiny settlement called Agua Caliente. Surrounding place names reflected the strangeness and severity of the land: Moonlight Canyon, Hellhole Canyon, Indian Gorge.
So get over there, get hunting, and tell us all if you find it.
Holy cow! UCLA just scored big. Their sponsorship deal is to be paid overtime if you wish to real all the technical details view the source here. Do you think this is a good choice? The only thing I am thinking is a 15 year deal might sound a little high for UCLA. But hey $280 million is $280 million.
