Yep. She made a legit interception of the pass and made it to the end zone. Touchdown, 6 points for Nique. (or 7 if they don't bother with actually doing extra point kicks, casual football usually doesn't)

Conversion is standard in nearly all American football. One point for goalpost kick, two points for end zone pass.

You can do the kick in rugby, I believe, but not the two point conversion.

Not that I mean this to contradict you in any was, since I know about as little about baseball as I do about American Football, but when I read grand slam, I associated it to tennis.


That would be because a grand slam in tennis is when someone holds the titles of the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open simultaneously. There's also a grand slam in golf, that's similar to the tennis one, that I had no clue about. There's a Grand Slam in just about every sport.

pretty sure they both lifted 'grand slam' from baseball, in their association with "scoring big, four times"...


...separately, i think denny's is just riding the coattails of the whole term

Not only greats, but they're all quarterbacks,


and not just quarterbacks, but Superbowl-winning quarterbacks. which number 18 has just become, also.

and of course Sweetness and Deion have both won it all, as well. and Jordan, just, yknow.. not in football.
