Mike Hewitt

The Blackhawks played hockey in a snowstorm and it was awesome | SB Nation
A fairly loose definition of awesome, I'm sure. But I kind of wish I could've been there to drink snow-beer and get frostbite on my toes.

The USMNT will wear polo/golf shirts in Brazil | SB Nation
As discussed a bit in the comments yesterday, Nike dropped the ball with these after the amazing anniversary shirts (which hopefully will be sold off at a discount so I can grab one). I mean, they're "ok" but a definite disappointment over the outgoing crop.

And speaking of the USMNT, the friendly against Ukraine may or may not still go ahead | Stars and Stripes FC
Sorry, football only stops violence when Didier Drogba is involved. Maybe it's best to just call this one off, no?

And speaking of politics, here's our very own Jake Cohen with something a bit more political | A Football Report
Remember when Greenpeace interrupted the CL match in Basel with a giant protest banner against Gazprom? Jake investigates in a five-part series. It's really good - though obviously outside the purview of WAGNH - if you're interested.
