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.

Auburn grad Katie George shines in Season 1.5 premiere of SyFy’s ‘Heroes of Cosplay’

The casting director for SyFy’s Heroes of Cosplay maybe deserves a raise. Because Katie George, one of the show’s new featured members, is kind of whippin’ the competition so far. George, whom we interviewed in 2011 (and did a little thing on last week—she’s in an Auburn shirt!), won the Wizard World Cosplay Con in […]

Auburn, Iron Bowl profiled in latest issue of chef David Chang’s hip foodie magazine ‘Lucky Peach’

In its latest issue, fancy foodie fanzine Lucky Peach, the journalistic extension of celebrity chef David Chang of Momofuku fame’s culinary curiosity, tackles tailgating culture on the Plains. Turns out they were more enamored with our football then with our food. Of course, after a game like that, Wolfgang Puck could have been serving diamond […]

An Auburn grad was personal vet for Ham the Astro-Chimp, the first ‘American’ in space

It wasn’t just Auburn engineers and physicists carrying NASA on their backs. Turns out, even Auburn vets were lending a hand in America’s space program. Literally. Dr. Richard Benson, class of ’49, was the main veterinarian (and even roommate or suitemate or something) of the immortal Ham the Space Chimp, the first chimp in space. […]

Game Show Network casting Auburn grads to pit against Bama grads in new trivia series

Game Show Network casting Auburn grads to pit against Bama grads in new trivia series

The premise seems kind of unfair. Auburn grads make more money than Bama grads, lead more biggest American companies ever than Bama grads, and contribute to the state’s highest brain index, which is four times higher than that found in Tuscaloosa (where this family lives). Nevertheless, The Game Show Network is currently casting a new […]
