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...
