Ken e-mails: "Dear Mr. Answer Person, When was the last time the Decorah Viking football team lost to the Independence Mustangs?"

Mr. Answer Person says: "Ken, you ask a good question--so good a question that Mr. Answer Person didn't know the answer!  So he contacted Mr. Sports Answer Person, who, like Mr. Answer Person, prefers to keep his identity a secret.  Here's the answer:

Independence played Decorah once in 1933.  It took almost 50 years before the two teams met again.  With the start of Districts, the two teams have been playing one another more frequently in the last 30 years.  In fact, the two teams have now played 20 games against one another.  The record for those 20 games is that Independence has never won and Decorah has won every single meeting.
