Question

The Orange Bowl was celebrating its 75th year. How is this possible? It started in 1935, which would make it 74 years ago.

Answer

This year’s was the 75th Orange Bowl. Look at it this way: If it had started in 2005, this would be the fifth year, not the fourth year. The first event would have been in 2005; the second in 2006; the third in 2007; the fourth in 2008; and the fifth in 2009.
