The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (11/18/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Karlovacko beer (Croatia). 21: winner, winner, chicken dinner. Thanks to JB for the international beer site.

I'm pretty sure I've said it before and I'll say it again. I hate off-weeks (someone pointed out yesterday that a bye is a free advance in a tournament, this is an off-week). Anyway, if my big brother is out there reading, Happy Birthday!! Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. It all starts after the jump...
