The Shotgun/Throwdown Celebrates West Virignia's Birthday

We're deep in the dead period that is the college sports offseason, so we are taking the time out today to celebrate the greatest state in the nation.

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown: WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions.

News Of Note

As of the time of writing, there is no news of note today. We're deep in the abyss of the offseason, and since the WVU baseball team got left out of the NCAA College Baseball World Series, there is nothing going on. But that doesn't mean the Shotgun/Throwdown doesn't continue chugging along!

Today is the greatest state in the nation's birthday. Our Mountain Mama turns 153 years old today, and we're going to take the time out from our normal routine and celebrate her the way she deserves to be celebrated.

The executive editor of The Exponent Telegram said it best. West Virginia is worth celebrating today and every day. Excuse us for bragging, but we're proud to be Mountaineers.

Miss Throwdown

Today's Miss Throwdown is West Virginia's favorite daughter. She doesn't have an Instagram account, but there are plenty of pictures of Jennifer Garner out there.
