The ThrowDown was originally launched by Jake “Maddawg” Bloomquist as an alternative to many of the watered-down pop culture blogs that filled WordPress back in 2009. The concept of “bombshell blogging” became wildly popular with thousands of readers and as a result, The ThrowDown inspired many to copy the style.
2011 would see The ThrowDown move to a three-man format, introducing co-blogger “Big Angry” Jay Richards and tech/relations supervisor Johnny Rantavius. The move would propel the blog to the next level of success, making the page an underground hit.
2014 will be the five-year anniversary of our gritty, no holds barred venture and will see the brand move forward with a few new changes, a further expansion into social media and of course, the articles that make us who we are.
And who we are is The ThrowDown. We fight fire with oil.
