The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (10/19/09) Edition


Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown.  Today's edition is dedicated to Jasper Howard.

I honestly don't feel it would be right to have the usual extras today, in light of the tragedy in Connecticut.  This will mean nothing to anyone who is directly involved, but today's post will just be the links.  My thoughts and prayers are with Jasper Howard's family, friends, coaches and teammates.
