For our Tiger Fans abroad, a look at the Oak on the corner of College St. and Magnolia as it puts forth its last bits of foliage. The struggle will come to an end soon as the poisoned Oaks will be removed.

War Eagle from across the pond!
My name is Jenn Mason, and I work with the Office of International Programs at Auburn. I was thrilled when I came across Auburn Tiger Europe because one of my goals is to reconnect with Auburn alumni living abroad. This year, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with informal alumni groups in Taiwan and South Korea…and now I’m excited about the chance to get to know our European Tigers as well!
Michelle has graciously allowed me the opportunity to become a regular contributor here at Auburn Tiger Europe, so you’ll be hearing from me about news on campus as well as Auburn’s many programs taking place globally.
If you’re in the London area this Saturday, September 8, please join me at 6 p.m. at the Draft House Tower Bridge for a casual alumni dinner. Andy Gillespie, assistant provost for international programs, will be there as well. Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know you’re coming. If you aren’t able to make it, send me a message anyway! I’d love to hear from you.
I’m looking forward to working with all of you. As always, War Eagle!
Yes, here we are. Soon it will be time for the OH-lympics in London.
Paul Kardous started an Auburn-London Olympic blog feed, counting down from 100 days out. London Auburn Tigers are gaging interest in an Olympic event with Auburn visitors and athletes. Matt Kidd, (XXVII Olympics Sydney – 2000 and XXVIII Olympics, Athens – 2004) will be back in London.
Who else from Auburn will be here? Please let us know.
As a recovering Atlantan, I could not believe that I was doing this to myself TWICE in one lifetime, but here I am—once again in an Olympic City during game year. However, I do live in a great garden if anyone wants to camp out.
What is with this Monday night game? For us in London, it is a Tuesday morning one.
I have confirmation that the Sports Cafe will be open and playing the entire game—extending their hours. Kickoff is 1:30 am for us in London.
Anyone up for a duck dinner in Chinatown and then meeting at the Sports Cafe? As I am continuously reminded, it has been 53 years. We have to stay up on a “school night.”
Plus, we need to celebrate another Heisman Trophy. (Was it poetic or what to see Bo speaking there?)
If you want to volunteer to handle the booking or want to meet us—let me know. Email me: wareagle at auburntigereurope . com or post a comment and I’ll get back to you.
The Sports Cafe once again was our venue for watching the Auburn vs. UAT game on the 26th of November. Other than the Texas incident, it was great. (Who would have imagined that Texas fans would rent the entire main part to watch a RERUN of their game? I was so ticked off that I almost told them they lost. OK, I did tell an Aggie that her team won.)
Here are photos of Auburn folks and friends who joined us in cheering on our Tigers. If I have your permission to tag them, send an email with which photo and names.
Yes, it is that time of year. The axis of our culture. The Auburn Alabama Game. Anyone who thought I was going to say Thanksgiving—didn’t come from either school. Or from the state of Alabama.
We give thanks after the game. Or not at all.
Our venue for watching in London: The Sports Cafe.
Kickoff is 7:30pm GMT.
Hope to see you there. Email if you need any more info.
Thanks to Paul Kardous for hosting us in his Camden flat to watch the Auburn vs. Georgia game. We had a great time and great chili, cheering for Auburn, shrieking about the defense (or lack thereof) and advising newcomers to the eccentricities of UK TV.
OK, Scarlett, I know we aren’t in Atlanta* anymore, but for heaven’s sake. None of our possible venues are showing the biggest game in the US. (Grumble, grumble, don’t want to give them anymore business.)
Be sure to brush up on the lyrics to “Lean on Me” and “All I Do Is Win” so that we can sing along with the hometown folk.
* There are more Auburn grads in Atlanta than the state of Alabama. Go figure.
Or night as it was in London.
We gathered at The Sports Cafe to watch the Auburn vs. LSU game on the 23rd of October. I was anticipating a certain group, but was approached by a random fan in the big room who walked up and said “War Eagle!” because he saw my J&M bag filled with Auburn swag. When I asked a table in the “booth” if I could share some of their space, on member of their group was an Auburn alum and turned out to be a frat brother of one of our London-tigers. (Queue to start singing “It’s a Small World:”
London fans who were residents were joined by visitors to watch and enjoy the game.
OK, Tigers. Send me your captions and comments. And War Eagle!
