I'm not sure if this is FPP-worthy, but I'll just put it here: Farting Controversy Clouds Grand Slam Of Darts Quarterfinal.

Depends on what FPP stands for.

I think I just saw the second coming of the 1971 Oklahoma-Nebraska game.

I only wish the Rams had been in their classic LA blue and yellow unis.

The overworked Coliseum field didn't look all that much better than the maligned turf at Azteca that the NFL turned its back on.

That was a such a great game. Aaron Donald was a total monster.

FPP is an acronym for Front Page Post, maybe?

I think tahoemoj decoded it best...

I saw bits of the game, and highlights, and I don't understand how any defensive player can hold up his head after giving up 50 points to any team. The offenses were both great and the game was a lot of fun, especially at the end if you were rooting for LA, but a great game? I don't agree.

It was fantastic to watch. So many great plays on offense and even a few all-world plays on defense as well. The crowd was bonkers from the opening kickoff, both teams had huge followings in the stands and no lead was ever safe.

I know it's not the way the game has been played, but that's part of why it was so exciting. I want that matchup in this Super Bowl almost as much as I want the Jaguars to win a singledamngameisthattoomuchtoaskfor.
