A warning (including an official stoppage of the play clock that functions as a time-out for both teams, but isn't charged to them) is given by the officials with 2 minutes remaining in both halves of a football game. If a play is currently running at the 2-minute mark, the clock stops as soon as the play is complete. Back before big electronic scoreboards, the only official game time was kept by the officiating crew. Since the coaches didn't know how much time remained in a half, the refs would stop the clock and inform them. Since then, it's been a holdover and a perfect excuse for the networks to break away to another three commercials.

It's just like saying: This is a 2 Pack soda, instead of this is a 2 Packs soda. If you're using it as a name, it's not plural. Whereas, if I was to say: I bought 2 packs of soda, it would be grammatically correct. It depends how you use the warning in a sentence. This is how you would rephrase that depending on your sentence: Class, this is your 2 minute warning - VS - Class, this is a warning that you have 2 minutes left, or Class, I'm warning you that you have 2 minutes left. It all depends on how you say it...I know how you feel, American grammar!!! Am I right?

Yes. It has happened on a number of occassions, most famously in the "Heidi Game" of 1968 when the Oakland Raiders scored twice in the final minute.

Simply put, an octave per minute doubles the frequency every minute. If you start at 20 Hz at one ocatve per minute you get to 40Hz in one minute, 80Hz in 2 minutes, 160 Hz in three minutes, etc.

1. "Minute" pronounced "minnit" is a noun which can mean a sixtieth of an hour, a sixtieth of a degree, or the record of a meeting. 2. "Minute" pronounced "mine yute" in an adjective meaning very small.
