It's fun to see fans of your team when traveling, or even people from your another school across town when out of the country. Years ago, my wife and I stopped by a shop in Guatemala -- she was wearing a South Alabama shirt -- and we quickly discovered that one of the shopkeepers had gone to the University of Mobile. That's pretty cool, but imagine stumbling upon a store dedicated to your school halfway around the globe.
It turns out there is an Alabama Crimson Tide store in Israel; and while a lot a Bama fans may already know this, Conan O'Brien just found out about it during his week of shows from Israel. The store was founded by an an Alabama grad named Hani Imam; and yes, he's a Tide fan. Watch the segment below.
