Hey Bama bros—have you ever been in two-down territory with your lady, but can’t stop thinking about Nosa Eguae? Well, thanks to the latest basic cable caricature of the Heart of Dixie, now you know you’re not alone.
The most recent episode of the CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” which transplants yankee-licious Dr. Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) to fictional (right?) Bluebell, Ala., opens with Hart and her friend AnnaBeth trying to remember how to girl talk. AnnaBeth won the toss and got right to it.
According to AnnaBeth’s pretend blog, her husband Jake “is a big football fan,” dresses up as players for Halloween, and wanted to name their new puppy “Bear” after Bear Bryant. Probably because giving that name to a child conceived in the throes of VanGorder’s mustachioed defensive scheme just wouldn’t be right.

It’s the 2nd Auburn mention on the show so far!!! Keep waiting to see someone wearing a shirt or cap or something!!!

If this had been about the Bama D-line ED would soon follow
If I remember correctly one of the previous characters, a vet went to Auburn and the dad of the lawyer was an Auburn fan. We have gotten several mentions. The past episodes are on Hulu if you want to watch….be warned this is definitely a chick show 🙂
I remember when that AU pennat was noted on some soap, that a prop designer or someone with the station in an Auburn alum. Same person?
Clint, that was in the bar on General Hospital (totally embarrassed with that knowledge being in my head!!!).
So, where do y’all think the fictional Bluebell is located? Near Magnolia Springs or Bay Minette?
as a resident of Baldwin County, near Bay Minette, I gotta weigh in and vote Tensaw or maybe Silver Hill would be my guess….Bay Minette isn’t quite “quaint” enough and Magnolia Springs isn’t big enough….Like the show, though….
