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...

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.
