Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and a few distractions. Today we're being brought to you by Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.
It's Christmas Eve and Huggs and the men gave us an early present last night. I sincerely wish you all the best Christmas and hope you all get to spend it with family and friends. Be safe if you're traveling. I will have a small edition up tomorrow. Merry Christmas everyone!!
