The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (12/22/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and a few daily distractions. Today we're being brought to you by Brahma beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

It's the Day Before the Day Before Christmas Eve. I hope everybody has their shopping done (mostly because I don't and I don't want to fight any crowds today). Anyway, there's plenty inside to keep you occupied. Tips, suggestions and requests are always a nice gift. See you on the other side...

Miss Throwdown:

Today's Miss Throwdown is yet another Brazilian supermodel who has been featured in the SI swimsuit edition and is another former Victoria's Secret model. I really want to, at least, visit Brazil...soon. Here's Isabeli Fontana.
