Just now tonight Seattle blocked an extra point by Washington, and ran it all the way to the house, but only got 2 points for it.

What the hell have I been smoking?

Ohhhh, you're talking about gridiron. Was confused for a moment.

Aussie rules football doesn't have  touchdowns, we have gaols and points (6 points=1 goal)

Nor do our neanderthals wear prissy padding, except for a cup. This has led to an enviable number of regular concussions, often leading to brain damage. Also the occasional death everyone pretends was caused by something else. Being bitten by a Tsetse fly, that kind of thing.   Great

That is besides the point.

Abso-fucking-lutely

There's been at least one case where a person had only a thin layer of brain in a head full of fluid. They we perfectly normal the way they functioned.

Remains clear to me that science still knows relatively little about our brains.

Ever hear of a conversion safety? A defensive conversion safety, which is possible but has never happened in the NFL, is the only way a team could finish a game with a final score of one point.

When I heard sport reports about that play, one report said, the  old rule was if you blocked the kick it was considered a dead play. But rules change over time. 

I guess my confusion is because such cases are so rare over time, it is easy to lose track.
