Default Scots in VA/DC/MD

Hi guys! I have used BE mostly for visa help, but I was wondering if any Scots/Brits living in the DC metro area might be of help for a different kind of question...
If everything goes according to plan, my Scottish DH will be granted a visa and will have moved to the DC area this summer. He is excited, but I think he is also fearing homesickness.
I want to make him miss home as little as possible, so I was just wondering if anyone knows of
A) any pubs in the area that show Scottish football. My DH is Glaswegian, so missing Old Firm games will be hard for him!
B) if there is anywhere that sells haggis (he loves it), black pudding, or Irn Bru? I have heard that haggis is illegal in the US, something about the sheep's stomach lining, but not sure.
Anyway, any help would be appreciated!

There is a crap diner in Arlington (Courthouse Metro) that is the home of the Rangers supporters group in DC. They get together and watch matches there:

There is also a place in DC called "The Lucky Bar" at 18th and M Street, NW that shows matches.

There are the Scottish Games held every year in Virginia

This site shows all the Scottish Events in the DC Capital Region:

OMG, that's great! Thanks so much...my husband is a total Rangers fan, so I have a feeling I will be dragged to this diner regularly once he is in the USA. Too bad it's crap...maybe I'll keep this one quiet unless he REALLY starts to whine....

Great link, thanks!
