‘Jeopardy’ contestant whose ‘Cheers’-referencing final response went viral wishes she’d written ‘War Eagle’

What is War Eagle? It’s what Elizabeth Williams kinda sorta wishes she’d written down for her Final Jeopardy answer on Monday. Heck, we all do. But what she went with, a response almost identical to Cliff Clavin’s Jeopardy swan song on a Season 8 episode of Cheers, was still pretty awesome—so awesome it upstaged the […]

Kristi Malzahn is looking lovely in the September issue of ‘Southern Living’

The latest issue of Southern Living has a big Iron Bowl feature, because college football rivalry is as southern as heat and stuff. The article starts and ends with a heartwarming story of an Alabama fan’s daughter who enrolled at Auburn because she was determined to not let her parents’ failings determine her destiny.

(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 […]
