That was pretty incredible...I didn't see the game, but heard about it at the GOYA meeting!

According to the applicable NFL rule, a field goal is not ordinarily good if the ball goes through the uprights but gets sent/blown back through the uprights in the opposite direction, unless the ball hit an "object" or a "person" after going through the uprights.

Person?  Person?  Has anyone seen a field goal kick hit a person (other than being blocked)?

That goes back to the days before they put up nets behind the crossbars on field goal and PAT attempts. Previously there were no nets and the ball routinely sailed into the crowd. The NFL then decided footballs were too expensive and made it mandatory that nets had to be in place behind the uprights.

Whatever it was, it was good.  It did indeed hit an object.

I don't get it.  Surely you don't mean to say that the hypostasis of the uprights is in any way affected through the passage of the ball?   ???

That would have to be some kick to make it through the uprights and then bounce off someone's head (or whatever) so forcefully that the ball goes back through the uprights.   :o

It is perfectly legal to return an un-converted kick that falls in play (i.e. not out of bounds).  There are a few cases of 100+ yard returns of missed kicks for touchdowns.

What would have happened if a Raven had caught that ball and then returned it for a touchdown? Who both teams receive points for that?

Nope.  The ball had hit an object that is out-of-bounds (the goal post's supporting arm), which made it a "dead ball" and not able to be played.

I figured.  I try (on purpose) to stay ignorant of that kind of stuff - I was a Camp E my first 2 years of undergrad, and hated it (and who would have known - I got a degree in Psych, which is the opposite end of the spectrum IMO, and one in Ministry, again an opposite).  Staying away from all things programming has been a real blessing so far.

Hello,

This will create 10000 random rolls of the die and compute how many of each number occurred.

Code: [Select]
#! /bin/ksh

let count=1
let ones=0
let twos=0
let threes=0
let fours=0
let fives=0
let sixes=0

while [ $count -le 10000 ]
do

     let Roll=RANDOM%6+1

     if [ $Roll = 1 ]
          then
               
               let ones=ones+1

     elif [ $Roll = 2 ]
          then

               let twos=twos+1

     elif [ $Roll = 3 ]
          then

               let threes=threes+1

     elif [ $Roll = 4 ]
          then

               let fours=fours+1

     elif [ $Roll = 5 ]
          then

               let fives=fives+1

     elif [ $Roll = 6 ]
          then

               let sixes=sixes+1

     fi

     let count=count+1

done

echo
echo The number of 1\'s is $ones
echo The number of 2\'s is $twos
echo The number of 3\'s is $threes
echo The number of 4\'s is $fours
echo The number of 5\'s is $fives
echo The number of 6\'s is $sixes

Probably not.  I don't see them losing to the fins, but covering the spread?  Eh, we'll see.  I think there are too many key players out (losing Polamalou on defense hurts them a bunch, plus he's the only Orthodox one).

Hello,

While I may be out of the programming world, I am always up for hearing about how someone is planning on serving our Lord!
My major is Computer Information Systems. My minor is in Music Theory. I am going to go into the business of Hymnal and Prayerbook creation and publication - I am planning on starting my own business after the first of the year.

My goal is to create a high quality musical typesetting engine (I am thinking of just splitting off from Lilypond) and maybe even a musical sequencer/synthesizer program.

I want to create the highest quality products of Gregorian Chant, Polyphony, and Sacred Hymns - classic, orthodox, traditional Catholic Sacred Music. Hey, if time permits, I may start trying to create quality musical products for Byzantine Chant - if there is a market or need for it.

But definitely there is a desperate need for it in the Latin Church. I hope to aid in the restoration of the beauty of the Church and the Liturgy.

The spread is a handicap for those who wager...

The Steelers have to win by more than 16 points...

They have to win by more than 16 points! Who's the handicap for - the gamblers or the bookies. ;D

Who decides the spread - how? And really, why is a handicap needed?

The lines are set in Las Vegas, the original casino that set the line was the Star Dust(Familia owned) but it was demolished this year, and the only legal sportsbook betting is in Nevada.
