FFF: Say it isn't so Mark

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

In this edition of FFF, we break down the Ingram suspension, a soccer club in Scotland is racking up titles at an insane pace, and I hit the Bywater for some Chinese food.

FOOTBALL

It appeared the Saints possessed a ton of momentum going into the 2018 season. Kept most of their core intact from a winning 2017 campaign, and drafted a starter on defense in Marcus Davenport.

Appearances, well they can be deceiving, especially after Mark Ingram's suspension for PED use. The seven-year veteran will miss the first four games of the season after using a banned substance. The University of Alabama alum is eligible to return for Washington week.

Making matters worse for Ingram, this is the last year of his deal. Ian Rapoport also reported Ingram hasn’t been around the facility during conditioning, and he won’t be around for OTAs.

You want to get into the Payton's doghouse, do all the things I just wrote about last paragraph.

Alvin Kamara will now be leaned on more than ever. Is he every down back, we don't know, but we're about to find out.

Is this the final year of Ingram in NOLA, we don't know that either. If he returns, and is back to 2017 form, he could be back in the Black and Gold for 2019.

FÚTBOL

You think the Patriots are ruining football by winning multiple titles in the NFL. Well, Celtic FC is crushing those title numbers in Scotland with their seventh title in a row. It's their 49th title overall!!

The crazy part is, they don't even own the most titles in Scotland. Rangers holds that honor with 54.

Talk about utter domination, Rangers and Celtic know a thing about it.

FOOD

I received quite a tough question the other day, where do I get the best Chinese food in NOLA?

We're known for a ton of options in the city, but Chinese isn't one of them. We don't have many, but the Crescent City does have a great one.

Head on down to the Bywater for Red's Chinese. First off, you need to be looking hard for it on St. Claude, with address handy. It doesn't have a sign. But when you do find it, you'll thank me for the recommendation.

Last time there, I crushed the pork belly buns with pickled daikon, kimchi mayo, and cilantro. For the main course, general's chicken. It's deep fried chicken, bourbon soy, peanuts, and cilantro.

It can get a little hot in there, so go now, before the summer months can get a little bit overwhelming at Red's.
