Without hyperbole, The Blizzard is the football version of The New Yorker, Playboy (just the articles), Vanity Fair and the New England Journal of Medicine all rolled into one: a mix of long form journalism, cerebral critique and long form narrative all can be found in between their covers.
We met Joshua C. Stephens (@joshuacstephens) during the panel discussion in New York City, and he gave us an overview of his work in progress and we couldn’t wait to sit down and talk to him. And then we lost track of him. Luckily he is more organized than we are and contacted us.
In his piece, as well as the interview, we talk about foootball, antifascist direct action, and where those those two things blend perfectly: the smallest team in the five boroughs, The New York Cosmos.
