Rammer Jammer

The phrase "Rammer Jammer" is a curious one, though it may be well known to fans of the University of Alabama's football team. It is a common cheer used by the Crimson Tide during away football games, and its name is derived from the school's celebrated humor and literary magazine. First published in 1924, the Rammer Jammer captured the zeitgeist of campus life through jokes, articles, cartoons, and photographs. The roster of Rammer Jammer alums is quite impressive, and it includes Harper Lee, Gay Talese, Vic Gold, and Grover Smith. Recently, the University of Alabama Libraries digitized the complete run of the Rammer Jammer, and visitors can chuckle along with the issues in the comfort of their living room, coffee shop, or smart phone. A good issue to start with is the March 1940 edition, which includes pieces like "Reels, Records and Radio" and "'Bama-No Playground".
