The Shotgun/Throwdown: Friday (8/28/09) Edition

New, 4 comments

Welcome By-Godders to the Friday edition of the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Pilsen.

Our sponsor today is Paraguay's most popular beer, in honor of our own Miss Throwdown. I'm sorry, but this is another beer name that sounds like a biological function. Next week begins our game preparation, so hopefully I can find some more goodies. Now, if only there was some kind of tipline available for you guys to send in your requests and suggestions (for any and all content)...... Have a great weekend. See you after the jump.
