Welcome, By-Godder's, to The Fall Down Pass Out. With WVUIE97 off on his conquest of Europa, a stand-in for the Shotgun/Throwdown was needed. As I explained it, it's a S/T for light weights, because I couldn't ever do anything that thorough.

Congrats Bruce! Like I said last night, it seems like such a short time that Bruce was with us. But for him, it's been a long road. All the hard work finally paid off last night. So let's look at the reaction from Morgantown and Seattle.
