In honor of Flag Day here in the United States, I hope you're up for another connect wall! The set of sixteen words below can be partitioned into groups of four words that have something in common. And of course the commonalities have something in common, which is related to the title of the puzzle. I wish you luck!

BALL, BLUE, BRIG, CONNECT, DOC, ERR, FAB, FINAL, ORDER, PAR, REM, RIB, RUN, SLOTH, SPARE, TRY

Connections

Group 1
Words that precede Four = BALL, CONNECT, FAB, FINAL

Group 2
Words that are Scores = RUN, PAR, SPARE, TRY

Group 3
Words that be appended with and to form new words = BRIG, ERR, REM, RIB

Group 4
Words that appear in groups of Seven = BLUE (rainbow colours), DOC (seven dwarves), ORDER (taxonomic ranks), SLOTH (deadly sins)

Combining these gives

"Four score and seven" = the first four words of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address, an important piece of Americana.

For starters:

PAR, SPARE and TRY are sports terms; the fourth could be BALL, RUN or perhaps FINAL.
