: Thrown for a six. Anyone know the origin of the phrase?
[American football. A completed pass (throw) advances the ball, bringing the team on offense nearer their goal line; if the pass receiver has positioned himself across the goal line, or can carry the ball there after catching it, the team scores six points. - Baceseras.]
