The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (12/23/09) Edition

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

It's the Day Before the Day Before Christmas and not a creature was stirring, except me...trolling the net for content below. The men are back in action tonight against a formidable #15 Ole Miss team. There will be an edition tomorrow and maybe something small on Christmas as well (I'm gonna play that one by ear and see what's happening). Something tells me I'm supposed to do something of importance on here a bit later today, but I'm not sure what it is. I'm sure it'll come to me. Think...think... The tips, suggestions and requests have been great, but more is always better. Let's get going....

Miss Throwdown:

Today's Miss Throwdown is a gorgeous model of Czech background. She claims they're real, but I contend they fail the "shape changing when laying flat on the back" test. Still magnificent, nonetheless, she can keep me warm anytime. Here's Denise Milani.
