The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (11/4/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Stroh's. This goes to eleven.

It's seems the reports of my demise were pre-mature. Lew-uh-vull week is well under way and the Krag is in fine form. Hopefully we'll get to see a diary entry sometime soon. It's also video day here at the Shotgun/Throwdown. So get yourself some popcorn, sit back, relax and enjoy the shows. Tips and requests are always nice. Let's get it started...
