About Us

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.

    • Thank you very much for supporting our work here at The ThrowDown! Unfortunately, time doesn’t permit me to join in for many community awards, just because of research and writing here. Hope you understand, but thanks for recognizing us!
