I'm currently in Santiago, Chile for work and for some play. (No, not banished to Bolivia).
Today, while walking around town, I twice saw people wearing Michigan gear. One guy had on an authentic basketball jersey and when I said "Go Blue" to him, he gave me a funny look. I'm fluent in Spanish and after talking briefly with him, he is a fan of the Fab Five, which is why he wears the jersey. I also saw a girl with a Michigan sweatshirt and she appeared to be a local, although it wasn't licensed apparel. I saw no other college stuff today.
Santiago is 5275 miles from Ann Arbor. Pretty good distance.
It seems to me that the brand is still pretty strong if you see it at the other end of the world.
Anyone else seen Michigan apparel a long way from home? Where?
