Fellow Alabamian mhgibson and I (well, in Marley's case, ex-Alabamian) are both writing romances involving football. In preparation, I'm reading Warren St. John's Rammer Jammer Yellowhammer: A Journey into the Heart of Fan Mania. The yellowhammer is the Alabama state bird, and the book's title alludes to the cheer, "Rammer jammer yellowhammer, who's the best in Alabam[er]?". Marley, if you haven't yet, you need to read this book. I was laughing my ass off by page 2. I'm naming my hero Warren in the author's honor.
