Bienvenidos, 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 Corona Extra, in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
The Final Four Celebration was held last night and a few not-so-surprising announcements were made. Devin has hired an agent and Mr. West, the younger, has decided to end his college career. I certainly thank them both for their efforts over the past years and wish them nothing but success in their futures. Spring football coverage is still going strong and I've got you covered there too. Email your tips, suggestions and requests or you can also Tweet me. Enjoy today's festivities and jump in...

Today's Miss Throwdown is an American singer with Hispanic heritage (Ecuador to be specific). She's a gorgeous (witness her latest video below, trust me, it's worth it) mom with an amazing voice. Here's Christina Aguilera.
