Product Details


“An ode to fandom.” —Newsweek

“St. John brings a singular empathy for his subjects. . . . These oversized personalities are rendered with irresistible zeal and light up the book like a stadium scoreboard.” —New York Times

"An unreconstructed fan of Alabama football, exiled in New York, Warren St. John goes home to join the Crimson Tide’s most rabid supporters as they roll across the South. His four-mile-a-gallon odyssey through the sun, suds, and stink of tailgate culture is a fresh and funny take on the American road trip–and an affectionate yet unsentimental look at Southern life, from belles who chug beer and bray from the stands, to fundamentalists who forgive any sin except a losing season. Like his hero, Bear Bryant, St. John has crafted a winner." –Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic

"What does it really mean to be a sports fan? For the millions of us who are, Warren St. John captures our passion with hilarity, absurdity and poignancy. He just gets our religion. And Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer is a marvelous journey into the soul of sports in America. A great ride in the tradition of Hunter Thompson and an even better read." –H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights

"A remarkable and funny book about obsession in America by a really fine writer." — Gay Talese

"Sports fandom is a phenomenon that has so far baffled the field of psychology.  The professionals haven’t a clue.  They should read this book.  Warren St. John takes us to where the rubber meets the road." — Tom Wolfe
