The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (11/23/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for links, information and fun. We're being brought to you today by San Miguel Pale Pilsen. We've made it to 2 dozen. Thanks to PM!!!

It's Brawl week. Just thinking about it gets me fired up. Basketball gets going again tomorrow too. Things are still a bit slow today, but it's picking up. Just so you all know, I'll be here all week. I don't get holidays off (Charley and 5YS are slave drivers). For you deer hunters out there, good luck and be safe. The tips, suggestions and requests have been great, but we need more. It all starts after the jump...
