Local Life and Lore in Knoxville

  • You'll get off to a fast start in Knoxville if you can pinpoint the current salary of Pat, Bruce or Lane (see "Key Terms") and develop an opinion on whether it's too much or too little. The University of Tennessee is king here, so you might as well play along.
  • The buildings of Knoxville are not actually connected by a secret underground passageway frequented by spies—a myth whose origins likely lie in the fact that the city is built on hole-riddled limestone—but you're welcome to pretend all you like.
  • Finally, "Rocky Top," UT's fight song, is a joyful little ditty and never suffers from too much repetition. Embrace it!
