The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (1/27/10) Edition

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

I apologize for the delay, between Firefox crashing multiple times and trying to keep the videos at the bottom from auto-playing.....GRRRRRR. I'm ok now, I promise. I have several recaps from the game last night with videos and pictures to go along with them. Also, as we lead up to FB signing day next week, I expect more and more news on that front. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. Jump in...

Miss Throwdown:

Today's Miss Throwdown is a Puerto Rican video vixen who is probably best known for her appearance in the Jay-Z video Blue Magic (you may also recognize her from some past Hump Day posts, as well). She is a former MIss Howard TV and can now proudly add Miss Throwdown to her resume. This is Brenda Lynn Acevedo. The gallery is kinda small, so I'm making up for it with 3 videos.
