The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (9/16/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders (and yes, even welcome to you Bammers and Barners that have discovered our little internet nest) to the best link dump around. Today, we're sponsored by Grolsch, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Wow, I go to bed early one night and miss all of the fun of that latest post. It's always fun when the Bammers and Barners find something new to fight over. I think I've found some things near the bottom of this post that we all can agree upon. It's my mission in life to bring people together. So, sit back, enjoy and don't forget to send in your tips.

"ESPN said that the East Carolina - WVU game was the most consumed college football game in terms of total hours viewed on ESPN360.com." Any chance that gets us on regular TV in the future? Here's hoping, but not counting on it.
