Auburn fans (and at least one AU grad) star in Birmingham-based Bravo reality show ‘Jersey Belle’

I lived in Mountain Brook for a few years as a kid and I was not the only Auburn fan. I just wasn’t. Everyone talks about Birmingham and Bama, and sure, Bammerham, I get it. But I swear it was probably half and half, at least in my neck of the woods, at least once […]

Cam Newton slaps Gatorade out of fan’s hands for not sweating enough in new commercial

Last month, Gatorade turned Cam Newton into a comic book hero. But in the just-released, best-smelling version of their latest Gatorade Is Only For People Who Sweat campaign, they turned him into the jerk Bama fans always wanted him to be. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Fellow Gatorade spokesman Peyton Manning’s is pretty good, […]

Auburn fans kill world record-setting (probably) alligator

You know that thing where, when you’re about to play one of your rivals, you start seeing email forwards and message board Photoshop things of your team’s nickname power animal devouring the other team’s? (When you’ve got tigers and eagles and world champion archers to work with, it happens a lot.) Like, come Iron Bowl […]

Auburn superfan Mackenzie Lintz, star of CBS show ‘Under The Dome’, is incoming Auburn freshman

The stars were aligning at Auburn last year. This year, they may be falling. Pink stars. Pink creepy stars. That’s the main thing I remember from the first season of Under The Dome, the CBS drama based on Stephen King’s same-named 2009 sci-fi thriller: Mackenzie Lintz (Norrie on the show) convulsing in some sort of […]

Auburn University researchers think they’ve found an ‘on-switch’ to reverse symptoms of Ebola

Bin Laden, salmonella—no threat to humanity is immune from the do-gooding going down at Auburn University.  Not even—fingers crossed—Ebola. A group of researchers lead by AU chemistry professor Stewart Schneller have developed a tiny molecule the believe could reverse the effects of Ebola. The deadly virus, which has recently reached epidemic proportions in part of […]

Funny or Die’s ‘How to Golf with Jason Dufner’ is hilarious

What you’re going to want to do to watch this video is use your finger muscles to click the mouse after you move the arrow over the play button, and then use your abdominals and diaphragm and stuff to laugh out loud. That’s how Duf does it. (Can’t see it? Use your finger muscles and […]

As the final victim of the “Distinguished Guests” segment of Friday night’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, audience member and Auburn alumna Brittany Nelson was introduced as “Shannon Revord”, host Meyer’s mistress in an affair so passionate the lovers agreed to rendezvous only via split screen. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Nelson […]

Cam Newton is reportedly the new face of Drakkar Essence cologne

Cam Newton is reportedly the new face of Drakkar Essence cologne

When my daughter, seven at the time, saw Cam Newton’s first Gatorade commercial, she cried foul. “That’s false advertising,” she said. “They say it’ll help Cam be better but he’s already as good as you can be.” Same could probably be said of his latest endorsement deal. It’s not as if the Blessed Individual needs […]

VIDEO: Charles Barkley vs. Barney the Dinosaur on 1993 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’

In 1993, Charles Barkley hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live (here’s the promo—Nirvana was the musical guest). And he posterized a purple dinosaur. (Godzilla had to cancel at the last minute.) The one-on-one Barkley on Barney showdown was part of Barkley’s monologue. “Hey, Barney, thanks for doing this on such short notice” Barkley says […]

Auburn’s own cool, casual, and kissable Jason Dufner is featured on the cover of latest issue of Golf Digest, which is surely the magazine’s best issue ever.
