War Drobe Eagle: The Auburn shirt in ‘Cannonball Run’

Gotta body, gotta body, gotta body, gah…

It’s certainly possible that it’s (supposedly) just a random wardrobe decision, like the recent bomb dropped on the blAUgosphere by Jason Segel’s faux-vintage on How I Met Your Mother. But somehow I don’t think so.

Even if I didn’t swear that the guy with the mustache to his left was Bill Alvis (Spade, class of ’74)…  just look at his face. He knows. And look at the positioning – near Terry Bradshaw and perfectly framed by the eye-drawing cleavage of Lamborghini girls’ Tara Buckman and Adrienne Barbeau…

No, that’s deliberate. That’s an Auburn man.

Anyone have any idea who?

… at the 7:44 mark.
