Kind of a close call

Heather & I are in Charleston, SC with Heather's family for the holidays.  We flew out of Denver on a 2:30pm Continental flight to Houston, then on to Charleston.  Later that day, Continental #1404 crashed on takeoff leaving Denver for Houston at 6:18pm, injuring around 40, but no deaths.  Continental regularly flies from Denver to Houston, so #1404 was probably not the next flight of the day.  Still, it feels a little like a "close call" for us.  On our flight they were asking for volunteers to take a later flight since they had overbooked.  I wonder how many of the passengers on #1404 had voluntarily taken it as a later flight?
