Famous Dawgs: Episode 1

Alright everyone, after being pleasantly surprised by coming across that promotional picture from "LOST" with the character Hurley wearing a Georgia Bulldog jacket, I'm just in the mood for finding Georgia representation anywhere I can.

(By the way, Jorge Garcia, the actor who does a great job portraying Hurley on the show, responded in a comment on my blogpost, confirming the UGA jacket as wardrobe. I haven't yet heard a response from him yet about other UGA fans on the show, including possibly Josh Holloway, who plays Sawyer and attended UGA for a year.)

So I've decided to begin a series of posts observing the University of Georgia's most famous Dawgs.

Today, I'd like to start out with some of the interesting ones that have popped up over the past few years, and brought to my attention on message boards such as the DawgPost.

First, we start with: Tara Reid


This infamous picture of the 33 year old actress showed up a while back, prompting mania among the Bulldog Nation. According to Wikipedia, Ms. Reid has starred in classic American films such as American Pie, American Pie 2, and National Lampoon's Van Wilder. She's also known to have an occasional wardrobe malfunction, but hey, it happens to everyone, am I right?


Even with my investigative reporting skills, the origins of this picture are unclear. Anytime I've seen it, there's little explanation of why she's sporting such a stylish UGA hat. Sources say Tara Reid was born in New Jersey, attended a "Professional Childrens' School" in Manhattan, and then jetted off to Hollywood to start acting. I have no clue how she could have any ties to UGA, the Dawgs, or even the state of Georgia. But until some answers surface, we can be... proud to have Tara somewhat representing the Red and Black.

That's it for now. Check back later today for the next Famous Dawg.
