Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer is an energetic, eye-opening and often hilarious investigation of the way in which sport can turn perfectly sane people into screaming lunatics, willing to sacrifice almost anything for their team. In search of an explanation, Warren St. John embarks on a four month roadtrip as part of the roving motor home community who follows the Crimson Tide American football team from game to game. After procuring a van he is welcomed into a world of bad keg beer, ticket scalping and people who find it perfectly acceptable to miss a daughters wedding if it clashes with a game. Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer is not only a travel story, but a cultural anthropology of fans that goes a long way toward demystifying the universal urge to take sides and win.
