The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (8/19/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Wednesday edition of the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Castle Lager, South Africa's most recognizable beer.

It just feels good to say "By-Godders." I get chills, or dare I say, a tingling sensation down.....nevermind. Or is it Miss Throwdown who does that? I'm soooo confused!!!! The party begins after the jump.

Remember, as always, the tipline.
