DragonKing Dark: The Auburn University tree killings

The latest edition of my 100 darkest moments in pop culture history takes a look at a football rivalry gone too far in my home state of Alabama: the Auburn University tree killings.

Why does the killing of a set of trees in downtown Auburn rank as a dark moment in pop culture history? Because it was all about football fandom.

The trees, used to celebrate Auburn football victories, were poisoned to death by a crazed Alabama fan who confessed to it on a national radio show.
