Is that a Bo Jackson Auburn jersey in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’?

The afternoon word on the tweet on the opening day of Avengers: Age of Ultron was that there was subtle homage to the greatest super hero ever: An extra was wearing a Bo Jackson jersey… … or at least an Auburn jersey with what looked to be a 34 on the back. Or least a […]

Lee Bains III dons Auburn hat in new Glory Fires video

Birmingham-based (but Lee County-lovin’) rock ‘n’ roller Lee Bains III is once again wearing his Auburn affection on his sleeve. Only this time it’s on his head. Not as rad as that time he blew Bama fans away with his “War Eagle” shirt at Egan’s in Tuscaloosa back in 2012, but still… more like Lee Brains. Can’t […]

Standing out amid the flower crowns at this year’s Coachella? The headwear of noted Auburn fashion icon Leonardo DiAuburnCaprio. I don’t care what the Academy says–give that man an AUscar!

VIDEO: Hallmark Kitten Bowl features player from ‘Paw-burn University’

Auburn University won’t be represented in the Super Bowl for the second year in a row. However, Joe Fluffo, a star on sports’ cutest stage, Kitten Bowl II, “attended Paw-burn University, where he earned a degree in Feline-nomics.” So we’re good. Fluffo is listed on the Mountain Lions’ roster as a String Tackle, but apparently […]

NPR uses 2013 Iron Bowl radio call to illustrate southern passion in report on possible ‘SEC Presidential Primary’

Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State, thinks “it’s time the South gets off the sideline when it comes to Presidential primary campaigns.” Why? Because southerners are a passionate people. I mean, just listen to this: (Can’t see the player? Try here.) It isn’t the first time the Kick Six has been politicized, but NPR’s Morning Edition […]

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Acid? Muscle relaxants? Or just being awesome? We may never know. But we can keep watching. Because Ashley S.–our Ashley Brooke Salter–got (against seemingly insurmountable odds and conventional wisdom) yet another rose from Prince Farming on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor. “That has to just be the producers keeping her on,” my wife said. Sure, […]

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

I’m honestly shocked it’s been five full months since we’ve had a TODAY Show post. For a while there they were coming, like, every other week (maybe every other day), mostly thanks to Al Roker and his incredible knack for awkward encounters with Auburn fans on The Today Show plaza (probably just because he expects […]

Auburn grad Ashley Brooke Salter stars in new season of ‘The Bachelor’; host calls her ‘the most talked-about girl on the show for quite some time’

She’ll be going up against a cruise ship singer, a plus-size model, a WWE Diva-in-training, and maybe a baby, but none of the other 29 women appearing on the new season of ABC’s “The Bachelor” have what Ashley Brooke Salter has: an Auburn education. So what she looks like is pretty much irrelevant–that’s a deal […]

Auburn-Alabama house divided featured on home improvement show ‘Fix It and Finish It’

A house divided was featured on a recent episode of a home improvement show of called Fix it and Finish It, hosted, of course, by soap star Antonio Sabato Jr. Sure I’ve never heard of it, but given that almost all my time in front of the TV these days is spent watching stuff I […]

Watch comedienne and Auburn grad Jeanne Robertson respond to a Bama fan heckler with an eight-minute stand up bit on the 2013 Iron Bowl

Jeanne Robertson has been working that southern humorist schtick for years, and her upcoming DVD, Fabulously Funny, has an eight minute bit on the 2013 Iron Bowl. And it’s great. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Jeanne’s an Auburn grad, 1967. And a hardcore fan. She was actually one of the featured guests alongside David […]
