Six degrees to UF's Kevin Bacon
We linked these three celebrity namesakes to our very own Hollow Man.
By Andrea Smiley
If you're anything like us, you harbor serious self-loathing
issues. But aside from that, you think it's really cool when somebody you know has the same name as a celebrity.
Well, good then! So do we. So we found a genuine UF student named Kevin Bacon, and we decided to find as many celebrity-named Gators as we possibly could and link them together, just like the game. Yes! That would be fun, we thought.
TIM McGRAW, computer science
Tim McGraw's favorite football team is the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers play in Tampa, Florida.
Tampa is the home of Guavaween, a risqué Halloween parade that provides a perfect setting for "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs.
"Girls Gone Wild" was created by Joe Francis, who attended USC.
USC is the alma mater of Sammy Knight who is now a strong safety for the Miami Dolphins.
The Miami Dolphins are the favorite NFL team of Kevin Bacon.
ALAN IVERSON, business and psychology
Alan Iverson's favorite restaurant is China Super Buffet on 13th St.
13th St. is also the home of X-Mart, a 24-hour adult supercenter where many a lonely guy can be found buying porn at 4 a.m.
A really famous porn is Debbie Does Dallas.
Debbie Gibson wrote, recorded and sang her No. 1 song, "Foolish Beat," at 16.
There are 16 gallons of beer in a keg.
"Keg in the Closet" is a song by country singer Kenny Chesney, who was a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
Lambda Chi Alpha is proud to have Kevin Bacon as a member.
JON STEWART, acting/performance
Jon Stewart enjoys relaxing at Durty Nelly's with friends.
"Friends" was a hit television show starring, among others, Jennifer Aniston.
Anniston, Ala. is the home of Woodland Park, where state and national softball tournaments are held.
Softball was first introduced as an Olympic sport in 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Atlanta houses the world's largest drive-in restaurant, The Varsity. It has been known to go through 2,500 pounds of potatoes daily.
$2,500 happens to be the amount of money raised in Dance Marathon by
