[show]The restaurant at which the characters in Bluebell hang out is called the "Rammer Jammer." This is a reference to a spectators' cheer yelled at University of Alabama football games when Alabama has just won or is clearly about to win. The cheer goes: "Hey, (opposing team)! 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. There actually is a restaurant called "Rama Jama's" across the street from the University of Alabama football stadium in Tuscaloosa.
