Jump to: Spoilers (2)
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. In "Hart of Dixie," the character of Wade Kinsella is played by Wilson Bethel, whose mother, the writer Joyce Maynard, had a very well-publicized relationship with J. D. Salinger.

Hey, (opposing team)! Hey, (opposing team)! We just beat the hell outta you! Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer Give 'em hell, Alabama!"

There actually is a restaurant called "Rama Jama's" across the street from the University of Alabama football stadium in Tuscaloosa.
