Auburn fan in new ESPN commercial

Wonder of wonders—ESPN briefly acknowledges Auburn in its latest “It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports” commercial, at least the extended, online-only version. A dude in an Auburn hat and sweatshirt quietly grins while a friend makes good on a lost bet by shaving off his eyebrows.

It’s not exactly promotional parity with Bama’s ripped off “Roll Tide” version, but since the 2010 Iron Bowl is likely the only game in recent memory that would have inspired so drastic a wager, we’ll still feel good about it. And hey, the preacher at the end of the Bama commercial later repented with a “War Eagle.” Punt, hegemony, punt!
