Welcome to the new WGOM. If everything seems the same still, come back in a few hours.
Prominently displayed are six "featured" posts. The first three in the top row are from left to right: the Cup, the Video, and the latest Fitness post. The next three, in the bottom row, are the three "hottest" posts, judged by comment count and age.
This new theme encourages posts to have a featured image set. hungry joe tirelessly created a bunch of images that will automatically be set as the featured image by default. You don't have to abide by his visual tastes and can set your own though.
The theme is still in beta stages and small visual fixes are needed in several places. Consider this thread a good spot for pointing out things you do and do not like about the theme.
Finally, don't forget about the WGOM/CdL caucus tonight at 6 PM at Barley John's Brew Pub.
