In the 1982 novel "Shoeless Joe" by W. P. Kinsella, the (fictional) main character, Ray Kinsella, goes on a road trip to find the (real) writer J. D. Salinger, author of "Catcher in the Rye," because Salinger had a real-life habit of using the last name "Kinsella" for his characters and Ray wants to find out why.

Hey, (opposing team)! Hey, (opposing team)! We just beat the hell outta you! Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer Give 'em hell, Alabama!" The term "Rammer-Jammer" came from the title of a 1920s-era student newspaper, while the Yellowhammer is the state bird of Alabama. The shooting location is the same as the one for the restaurant/bar Merlotte's in the HBO series True Blood (2008). There actually is a restaurant called "Rama Jama's" across the street from the University of Alabama football stadium in Tuscaloosa.
Since the 1950s, Alabama state law has mandated that the phrase "Heart of Dixie" must appear on every Alabama car license plate, usually along with or inside a drawing of a heart.
