GAME OF THRONES:
Just when you think it couldn't possibly surprise you anymore, there it goes again. Boom, right in the kisser, with full emotion. And then you realize you're halfway through the episode. What more could there be! Oh. Holy. [Shoe].
RUSSIA & QATAR MAY LOSE WORLD CUPS (BBC):
There's no way that Qatar abomination's happening. Said it from the very beginning. Russia is a tougher cookie, but hey, if either those ends up in places I'd want to visit, I'm all for it.
TWO LANES TO ACCOKEEK (SB Nation Longform):
I didn't know anything about this going in, but it's a fascination, tragic story, mostly about street racing. It's well worth your time.
