Alabama Fans Flock to Stores for Championship Gear


Alabama fans were out late and up early to get their hands on some National Championship swag.

Some fans lined up outside of Academy Sports + Outdoors in the Festival Centre immediately following the win.

“I couldn’t make it,” said Jerome James. “I had to get it tonight. I want to put my hat on with the players at the same time”

Other fans waited until Tuesday morning. Dick’s Sporting Goods in McGowan Park opened early at 6 a.m.

“I had to come first thing in the morning,” said William Gertz. “I picked up three different T-shirts in three different colors.”

Fans we spoke with are excited about the Championship win.

“It was a heck of a game,” said Alan Leonard. “One of the best ones I’ve seen them do in a long time.”
