The Shotgun/Throwdown: Friday (7/23/10) Edition

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's nationally recognized best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Chodovar Beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown. And that is actually a beer bath, BTW. Evidently they run a "beer spa." I smell a Euro-Trip coming.

Today is an unofficial video day here at the S/T as there are several embeds and lots of links to them. If any of them aren't working, please leave a comment and I have a couple options for the ones that may not work (I really can't tell if it's the sites or my P.O.S. computer here at work). If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Enjoy your weekend!!! After the jump is where it all happens...
