Punt return = ?
Scoring return = ?

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Even the fog couldn't obscure Reggie Bush's wily punt return. Bush was virtually untouched on the 65-yard scoring return in top-ranked Southern California's 28-20 foggy victory over Oregon State on Saturday night.

A 'punt' is a kick of the ball by the offense to return it upfield (i.e. away from the goal which they defend). A member of the other team catches the ball, and runs with it back toward his opponents' goal: that is a 'punt return'. It was also a 'scoring return', because he was not tackled or stopped before carrying the ball all the way back to the goal that the punter was trying to protect.

Got that?

Someday, New Hope, you really must tell me how you find so much time to read so catholically. Don't you work, or study in a field?

Thanks MM.

Not that I have had so much time to read so many articles. I just sampled some of them to test my English language knowledge, for I am so eager to learn the language!
