The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (11/11/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Hedrick. That makes a Sweet 16.

It's November 11, Veterans Day, so please take a moment to honor and remember all of those who have served our country through the years.

Updated Noon (somehow I forgot about Metronews). Here we go...
