No one knows how to create electricity over obscure sports quite like the Brits. We, at the Loop, have tried to dive into this brilliant world time and time again. There was this, which had the panache and flair of Odell Beckham Jr. after a TD grab mixed with Draymond Green's chutzpah. Or there was this of a "stunning moment" that sees a crowd erupt in rapturous glee.
Well, now we have a new challenger to the darts adoration, which comes to us from the World Indoor Bowls Championships.
