The Importance of Tips, FanPosts, and FanShots

Contrary to popular belief, the authors of this site don't sit around in our mother's basements combing the internet for information on WVU and college sports en masse.  We have lives.  They're not good lives, mind you, but lives they are nonetheless.  That's where you guys come in.

Without you, the loyal reader, this site isn't anything.  First off, if I noticed no one was visiting the site, I would probably stop writing.  But beyond that, your comments and contributions make this a vibrant community.  By submitting tips to your authors (charleywest@gmail.com) or submitting Fan Posts and Fan Shots, you can greatly increase the experience at The Smoking Musket.  This will inspire better stories, increased community activity, and overall, just a better damn website.

So, please, I beg you, help us out.  By doing so, you'll only make the site better for you and your fellow Mountaineer fans.  And also, if you don't, the terrorists win and 5th Year Senior will start killing puppies.  And you don't want that on your conscience, do you?
