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

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 […]

Photo of Auburn fans smoking with Bama fans before 2013 Iron Bowl featured in September issue of ‘Cigar Aficionado’

The pop cultural power of the Iron Bowl knows no bounds. Morning shows. Award shows. End Of The Year What Does It All Mean shows. And now Cigar Aficionado. Because we’re told that if somehow your photo is one of the few selected for publication in their fan submitted stogie selfie section out of the […]

Priscilla in Alabama tells QVC ‘War Eagle’

You know how sometimes you’re like, “wow, The War Eagle Reader hasn’t had one of those Auburn-shirt-in-a-movie posts or a TODAY Show somethin’or’other with a ‘War Eagle’ in a while” and it just bothers you? Well, some people just take matters into their own hands (mobile carrier call charges may apply). In June, a caller […]

Alabama fan Joe Scarborough cracks joke about Auburn paying players on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ because he’s still mad about the Iron Bowl

Alabama fans will forever be on the losing end of the greatest football game ever. Joe Scarborough copes with it by making Auburn jokes. On Thursday’s episode of Morning Joe, MSNBC’s resident Roll Tider ended a segment on the NCAA’s recent vote on the possibility of paying student athletes with the line: “I mean, Auburn’s […]

Michael Strahan using the Iron Bowl to explain football to Kelly Ripa on ‘Live! with Kelly and Michael’

There were so many of them. So. Many. They just kept coming. Morning calls from mom, morning calls from the mom-in-law, emails, texts, tweets: “They’re talking about, they’re talking about, they’re talking about…” They were talking about the Iron Bowl. Everyone. Matt. Al. Whoopi. Barbara, Hoda. Kathie Lee. Brian. Diane. The Friends. I’ve tried finding […]

Shaquille O’Neal Kendall Simmons and family represent Auburn on ‘The Today Show’

<s>Shaquille O’Neal</s> Kendall Simmons and family represent Auburn on ‘The Today Show’

Al Roker has a knack for awkward encounters with Auburn fans on The Today Show plaza (I think it’s just because he expects so much). In March, he assumed that some Loveliest lovelies were in the Big Apple for March Madness. No. They weren’t. In fact, their school’s basketball coach had been fired the day […]

Another prime time TV show episode, another 2006 Iron Bowl clip—this time it’s ‘The Mindy Project’

Another prime time TV show episode, another 2006 Iron Bowl clip—this time it’s ‘The Mindy Project’

Looks  like they’re trying to throw us off (maybe to end around some licensing fees or something?) by labeling it “Arkansas vs. Mississippi State” (and maybe piping in the Hog on Dog audio, too?) but trust us, we know (or at least are pretty confident we know) a background 2006 Iron Bowl clip when we […]

‘Roe Eagle! ESPN tennis analyst Patrick ‘Brother of John’ McEnroe gives ‘War Eagle’ during Wimbledon broadcast

Well dang, it wasn’t John McEnroe, but a “War Eagle” exchange between John’s brother Patrick and fellow ESPN tennis analyst Brad Gilbert during the broadcast of former “University of Auburn” tennis star Tim Puetz’ second-round Wimbledon match Wednesday was still pretty cool. Puetz, a four-year letterwinner and All-American at Auburn, was stickin’ his tongue out at […]

Auburn flag pops up in World Cup broadcast

UPDATE: We tracked him down and interviewed him. … People watching today’s coverage of the World Cup in Brazil spied an Auburn flag in what people in the know are calling “a large section of Mexican fans during their game against Croatia.” Given the sport of soccer’s deep roots at Auburn (you’re welcome, the South) […]
