Sweet Home Alabama (2010 Auburn Tree Poisoning Scandal)

Hall of Shame - May 11, 2020 - 35:04

Rachna's stocking up on toilet paper for this week's story. Alabama’s most adored pastime is college football, and its bitterest rivalry is between the University of Alabama and Auburn. For decades, Auburn would celebrate its wins by TPing the oak trees at an intersection downtown called Toomer’s Corner. So when those trees are poisoned in the dead of night after a victory against the University of Alabama, it’s not too hard to guess what side the perpetrator is on.

About The Show

Fox Sports host and comic Rachel Bonnetta (“Lock It In”, “@Buzzer”) and comedy writer Rachna Fruchbom (“Fresh Off the Boat”, “Parks and Recreation”) are here to share their love for two things: sports and DRAMA. Sure, they obsessively root for Cleveland (the Browns and the Cavaliers, respectively), but they get even more excited by those crazy moments in sports that become almost legendary. We all know the sensationalistic scandals about cheating, gambling and sex, but Rachel and Rachna want to discover the humanity behind the headlines. That’s why they started Hall of Shame -- every week Rachel and Rachna will take each other through some of the biggest scandals in sports, from the thrill of Dock Ellis’ acid fueled no-hitter on acid to the agony of Rosie Ruiz’s fake Boston Marathon win. With humor and a healthy dose of perspective, they get to the bottom of what exactly went down, why these stories matter, and how they’re still relevant today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel more invested in sports than you ever thought possible.
