Ask any teenager to define “wha” and he or she will plainly tell you that it’s slang for “what?”, as in “wha’happened?”, knowing nothing of the short-lived hockey league that I’m about to riff on.

The World Hockey Association was built on the back of Bobby Hull’s star turn in Winnipeg. The league’s wide net brought in Gordie Howe and, briefly, Wayne Gretzky. If this is news to you, stop what you’re doing and set aside the next hour of your life to read the Toronto Sun’s awesome recent series about the WHA. If not, read it anyway. The series is well-researched and offers quite a trip down memory lane.

To this day, the WHA has at least one thing that the NHL doesn’t: Its own Hall of Fame. Go visit its website to see more of the nostalgic photos that you see above, and arrange a donation of that old Calgary Cowboys sweater hanging up in your attic.
