The Daily Believer: 11.16.09

The Daily Believer is your daily dose of whAUtever, a dose that grows by the second, minute, hour, who knows. Maybe there’s something going on tonight at the Gnu’s Room. Maybe there’s a volleyball game. Maybe there’s some update to The War Eagle Reader you need to know about. Maybe last night’s episode of House referenced Bo. Maybe Pat Dye’s Pants have no reserve on eBay. In other words, we’re live-blogging Auburn – town, gown, idea – and we need your help. Are you putting on an event? A show? Let us know. Know about one? Let us know. Spot Chizik at Byrons? Let us know. Did you see that episode of House? Let us know.

*** Speaking of West Virginia, we’re borrowing culture… from Morgantown.

Last year when the Auburn Tigers traveled to Morgantown, W.V., to play football, Inder Pannu had a chance to meet some Auburn residents. Pannu owns an Indian restaurant in Morgantown and discovered that there was not one in Auburn.

“They told me that they had Mexican and Japanese, but that there were no Indian restaurants,” he said.

So, Pannu, who has owned the restaurant in Morgantown for eight years, decided to relocate to Auburn and open an Indian restaurant.

People say it’s good. — [JDH – 2:57 p.m.]

where's TWER
For the record, I kinda dug that girl.

If you can spot TWER (Jeremy, Jennie and Chris Shelling Jr) in this screen cap of this kind of awesome ESPN Outside the Lines video (except it’s pronounced Jordan) which not only documents the school’s pioneer use of text message tattling inside the stadium but gives you hot, behind the scenes action (as opposed to behind the grass) of the Wet Virginia game (“the mob fight crowd is out of control’… ‘our feet are soaked and we don’t know how to keep from getting jungle rot’, West Virginia Marching Band…”), you will win a prize, something awesome. Simply ‘save as,’ open in Paint, circle us, send back.

That opening shot -- that's the 'You Honk We Drink' spot I walk by!

(is AU offering Guinea Pig incentives for this sort of stuff? Cause even if the team isn’t, the students seem to be getting a lot of media attention these days. Or are we just the obvious choice for exposes on student disorderliness and sorority girl whiskey mules?) — [JDH – 1:30 p.m.]

Ok. Pause. We have two weeks. Technically less. The Beast is coming. In through the nose, out through the mouth. What's it going to take to make this the greatest season ever? Everything you got.

TWER is prepping it’s Iron Bowl coverage with special attention to the 20th anniversary of the game first coming to Auburn. Stay tuned – we need your help. — [JDH – 12:59 p.m.]
