Here’s a great Christmas photo of Shug and David Housel (dressed as Santa Claus)

If they have a print of this–and how in the world could they not?–it has to be at the top of the Grab In Case of Fire list in the Housel household.  Imagine being an Auburn fan, being someone who has devoted your entire young life to Auburn, and being able to dress as Santa […]

Thanks, Auburn students! — Dog ‘n Suds (P.S. Please return our root beer mugs)

Thanks, Auburn students! — Dog ‘n Suds (P.S. Please return our root beer mugs)

So there’s apparently some Midwestern fast food chain called Dog ‘n Suds that once upon a time came southeastern, to the Loveliest Village on the Plains. And the young people there welcomed the yankees with open mouths. And sticky fingers. “The girls are having a hard time serving Root Beer in their hands,” read the […]

Miss Auburn 1947-48 Essie Crumpton looks just like Katy Perry (who played at Auburn that one time)

Miss Auburn 1947-48 Essie Crumpton looks just like Katy Perry (who played at Auburn that one time)

Katy Perry came to Auburn in 2001. We know that now. But then Mr. Bagwell was all like, uh, wasn’t she a student here in the 40s? Dude, it’s just like time-traveling Nicolas Cage and John Travolta (another star with Auburn connections). Seriously, Gawkwer needs to run with this (just be sure to link GAUker). […]

That time Bama’s SGA president sang the Auburn fight song at Toomer’s Corner

That time Bama’s SGA president sang the Auburn fight song at Toomer’s Corner

Such a crying shame every time the Plainsman disappears for Christmas break when you’re trying to find something from the thick of December, especially now as we diligently dig for Toomer’s every mention in history in these end times (not for the corner, right—just go with it). But at least we can imagine… From Dec. […]

Here’s Katherine (and Laurie) Webb’s Auburn grandfather

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to TWER, there’s a “Katherine (and Laurie!) Webb’s grandfather” post. THEIR GRANDFATHER….Wayne Thames. Wayne was on The Plains in the late 50s. Here he is in the 1959 Glom. Talk about an Auburn leg-acy… Related: Auburn sophomore Laurie Webb talks big sister Katherine’s new found […]

J.R. for President shirt, 1981

J.R. for President shirt, 1981

Larry Hagman passed away last month and now TNT is promising a funeral for J.R. Ewing in its “Dallas” reboot. So here’s an Auburn coed jogging (possibly still with a soft “j”) in a “J.R. for President” shirt in 1981. Not as good as a “Who Shot J.R.?” shirt, I guess, but still good enough […]
