The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (4/29/10) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's nationally recognized best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Pete's Wicked Springfest.

Spring Practice is complete with the exception of the Gold/Blue Game tomorrow night. I know a Friday night exhibition may make it harder for some to make it, but they are adding more "events" to make it more attractive. We have an Old Timer's/Alumni game before the main event tomorrow, which could be interesting. So come out if you can (it's only $5). Plus, all proceeds benefit a worthy cause in WVU Children's Hospital. Email your tips, suggestions and requests or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
