He got his beer AND his milk

The extatic football supporter and farmer could barely speak after his team escaped relegation in the last minute, of the last game of the season. What he did say, became an instant hit in social media.

The extatic football supporter of Bryne Football Club could barely speak after his team escaped relegation in the last minute, of the last game of the season.

Some days it’s really hard to be BOTH a crazy sports fan AND a farmer!

«If my wife is watching, she has to milk the cows, I'm off to the pub», is about all he managed to utter when NRK, Norway's public broadcaster, spoke to him after the game.

We called him up to ask him how his night of celebration went.

– We had an amazing night! We went to the pub «Krazy» in the centre of Bryne. After a while we were joined by the team's players and coaches, says Bjørn Serigstad Ege.

It was a real heart stopper as Bryne FK, having had one man sent off in the first half, defeated Bærum 2-1. Many supporters were interviewed after the game but Ege definitely made the clearest statement.

A former Bryne FK-player filmed the eloquent supporter off the television, and posted it on Facebook.

Since then, hundreds of thousands have seen, and commented on the clip.
We called Bjørn Serigstad Ege to ask how his night was.

– It was a fine celebration, but I had to catch the last train home, says the football crazed dairy farmer. Although the wife took care of the cows that evening, I still had to get up to milk them early the next morning.

Luckily, he made it, and though it was the toughest day he ever spent in the cowshed, he was all smiles.
